Mike Garafolo is reporting that the Jets are re-signing OT Ben Ijalana to a two-year, $11 million contract.
Ijalana, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Colts back in 2011. He lasted just over a year in Indianapolis before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Jets.
Ijalana has returned to New York on one-year contract each of the past two seasons.
In 2016, Ijalana appeared in all 16 games for the Jets and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 60 offensive tackle out of 78 qualifying players.
