The New York Jets announced Sunday that they’ve signed third-round OLB Jachai Polite to a four-year deal.
The Jets have now signed all but two of their 2019 draft picks including:
|121.||4.||Trevon Wesco||TE||West Virginia||Signed|
Polite, 21, was selected with the No. 68 overall pick in the third round by the Jets. He’s expected to sign a four-year, $4,218,191 contract that includes a $1,118,194 signing bonus.
Polite struggled during the pre-draft process, which led to him falling to the third round, even though he was considered to be one of the top edge rusher prospects last year.
During his three-year college career at Florida, Polite recorded 78 tackles, 15 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and four pass defenses.
