Jets Sign Third-Round OLB Jachai Polite


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: 

Pick Round Player Pos. College Note
3. 1. Quinnen Williams DL Alabama  
68. 3. Jachai Polite OLB Florida Signed
92. 3. Chuma Edoga OT USC  
121. 4. Trevon Wesco TE West Virginia Signed
157. 5. Blake Cashman LB Minnesota Signed
196. 6. Blessuan Austin CB Rutgers 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.
