Jets Sign Three To Futures Contracts Including WR DeAngelo Yancey


The New York Jets officially signed three players to futures contracts on Monday for the 2019 season including OT Dieugot Joseph, C Jon Toth and WR DeAngelo Yancey.

Yancey, 24, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.62 million contract with the Packers and was set make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Packers waived him at the start of last season.

Yancey later re-signed to the Packers’ practice squad and brought him back on a futures contract only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason. He later signed on to the Jets’ practice squad.

During his four-year college career at Purdue, Yancey caught 141 passes for 2,344 yards receiving (16.6 YPR) and 20 touchdowns for the Boilermakers. As a senior, Yancey finished in the top-10 in receptions yards and touchdowns while leading the league in yards per reception. He was voted second-team All-Big Ten in 2016.
