One of the longest-tenured Jets is on the move.
Outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins is reportedly signing a two-year deal with the Texans, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, ending Jenkins’ run with Gang Green that began when he was drafted by the team in 2016.
The Jets took Jenkins in the third round out of Georgia, and he certainly panned out, making at least 11 starts every season since and recording a career-high 8.0 sacks in 2019. He played in 14 games as a rookie and recorded 23 solo tackles, before setting a career high with 32 in 2017.
Last year, Jenkins made 12 starts and logged 2.0 sacks, 15 solo tackles and a forced fumble.
With Jenkins gone, Marcus Maye and Thomas Hennessy are now take the place of the longest-tenured Jets.
