Herndon was once seen as a key piece of New York’s offense with a lot of potential, but the young tight end has been disappointing in 2020.
The Jets are gearing up for a complete rebuild going forward and appear willing to shop just about any player for draft picks to help with that mission.
Herndon, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets out of Miami back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $3,171,368 contract that included a $711,368 signing bonus.
In 2020, Herndon has appeared in eight games for the Jets and caught 14 passes for 101 yards and no touchdowns. He’s also lost two fumbles.
We’ll have more on the Jets and Herndon as the news is available.
