The Jets are considering re-signing linebacker Jordan Jenkins, who is in the final season of his rookie contract, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
"A league source said the Jets have expressed some interest in re-signing him, which was something that seemed unlikely when the season began," Vacchiano said. "Now, the Jets are going to try to find a dominant edge rusher this offseason in free agency or the draft. But the idea of Jenkins on the other side has some merits. He's been their best and most consistent pass rusher this year with five sacks, 12 over the past two seasons. He shouldn't cost a ton either, and might even be open to shorter term deal."
Jenkins was drafted with the No. 83 pick in the third round back in 2016 out of Georgia. He has five sacks this season, and a total of 17.5 sacks in four seasons with the team.
"After the Jets extended the contract of Ryan Griffin last week, Jenkins deal might be the next one to get done," Vacchiano said.
