Jets Release Quincy Enunwa

The New York Jets have released wide receiver Quincy Enunwa.

Enunwa, 28, was placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list in May due to the neck injury he suffered during last year’s season opener against the Buffalo Bills. The injury came 2 years after five-year veteran suffered a neck injury during training camp, which kept him sidelined for the entire 2017 season.

The wide receiver was selected by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2014 draft out of Nebraska. In 41 games he made 119 catches for 1,617 yards and five touchdowns. 

Enunwa’s biggest season, the only of which he played in all 16 games, was in 2016, when he recorded 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns.

Despite his neck injury in 2017, which caused him to miss the whole season, the Jets still agreed to terms to a four-year, $36 million extension in late December 2018. Enunwa only played one game under the contract extension before he was released.

For Enunwa, he will enter the open market and will not be able to participate in the 2020 season. 

The Jets, who lost wide receiver Robby Anderson to free agency, will likely look to newly acquired Brashad Perriman and Jamison Crowder as their go-to receivers in the upcoming season.
