The other day on JetsFix, we speculated as to what the Jets might do with their restricted free agents. They've apparently started to address the issue.
According to Manish Mehta of the Daily News the Jets are set to tender Rontez Miles at the lowest amount.
This means Miles will be under contract for a non-guaranteed $1.9 million for 2018, unless a team signs him to an offer sheet. If a team does sign him to an offer sheet, the Jets can match it and there's a good possibility that's their plan. If they opted not to match any offer sheet, there would be no compensation for Miles, since he was undrafted.
Miles, the longest tenured player on the Jets' defense, led the NFL in solo tackles on special teams last year, despite missing the first three games with an eye injury.
Neal Sterling, Brent Qvale, Xavier Cooper and Quincy Enunwa are also restricted free agents.
