“If I’m capable of playing, then that’s what I’ll do,” Enunwa said. “If it comes down to the fact that the doctors say I can’t, there’s not much I can do. There’s really nothing I can do there, but if I have the ability to (play), the passion will always be there, the want-to will always be there.
“I think, aside from obviously my neck, the physical ability will always be there. It’s really just about me going for the ride, I guess, because I’m not in control of that part anymore.”
Enunwa, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jets back in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.995 million and made a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season before returning to the Jets on a one-year restricted deal worth $2.914 million.
The Jets re-signed Enunwa to a four-year, $36 million deal which included $20 million guaranteed last year. He’s been paid $6 million this offseason and is owed $4.1 million in injury guaranteed for the 2021 season.
In 2019, Enunwa appeared in one game for the Jets and caught one pass for -4 yards receiving.
