Jets Cut Four Including WR Quincy Enunwa

The New York Jets announced Monday that they’ve released WR Quincy Enunwa and placed RB Trenton Cannon, OL Ben Braden and OLB Wyatt Ray on waivers.

Enunwa said a few months ago that he is still hoping to resume his career, despite a career-threatening neck injury. 

“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.
