New York Jets welcome back Quincy Enunwa

New York Jets welcome back Quincy Enunwa

The last time Quincy Enunwa donned a New York Jets jersey was nearly two years ago on New Year's Day, the last game of the 2016 season. Enunwa would go on to miss the entire next season because of a neck injury becoming a restricted free agent right after the season ended.

For 2018, the New York Jets will bring back Enunwa in a one-year restricted free agent tender valued at $2.9 million.

Quincy Enunwa is a former sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft and has played for the New York Jets for his entire career. Throughout 29 career games, Enunwa, who stands at 6 feet, 2 inches and weighs 225 pounds, has accumulated a total of 80 receptions for 1,172 yards with four touchdowns. He had his best year in 2016 where he had 58 catches for 857 yards.

In addition to Enunwa, the New York Jets also signed center Travis Swanson.

Swanson is a former third-round pick of the Detroit Lions back in 2014 when he started 42 games. In 2017, Swanson made a total of 11 starts before suffering a concussion in December and was placed on the injury reserve.

The 6-foot-5, 304-pound Swanson alternated time at both guard and center during his rookie season but has since played center full-time starting in 2015.

Robby Anderson flourished in Enunwa's absence in 2017 as the Jets' best receiver, totaling 63 receptions for 941 yards as well as seven touchdowns. Anderson is currently dealing with off-field issues.

It is highly unlikely that Enunwa will receive many chances to play when he comes back from injury, especially now that he enters a crowded receiver room in the New York Jets' roster.
