The Jets have announced the following moves:
We have tendered the following players:— New York Jets (@nyjets) March 14, 2018
WR Quincy Enunwa: 2nd round
S Rontez Miles & OL Brent Qvale: Right of first refusal
TE Neal Sterling: Original round pic.twitter.com/ciMH3FODFy
No announcement was made in respect of defensive lineman Xavier Cooper, who will presumably be non-tendered and therefore become an unrestricted free agent.
Enunwa will be under contract for just under $3 million for the 2018 season. If another team signs him to an offer sheet, the Jets can match it or collect a second round pick as compensation.
If Qvale, Miles or Sterling get an offer sheet, it will probably be a low enough one for the Jets to match. In the case of Sterling, they'd receive a seventh rounder in compensation if the offer sheet was not matched, but there would be no compensation for Qvale or Miles.
Those three will be under contract for $1.9 million. The four moves in total will use up approximately $8.5 million of cap space, but none of these salaries are guaranteed if the players in question don't make the team.
In addition, the Jets announced this move:
Safety Terrence Brooks is going back to the #Jets on a 2-year deal, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 14, 2018
Brooks was a useful rotational defensive back and special teamer last year for the Jets, with his season highlighted by an AFC player of the week award when he intercepted two passes in the week three win over Miami.
The Jets also announced that they are bringing back three of their four exclusive rights free agents:
As we half-suspected, the Jets opted not to bring back Freddie Bishop who will now have the option to seek a job elsewhere, perhaps back in Canada.
