Contract Extension For TE Ryan Griffin

There has been no shortage of things that haven’t gone the way the Jets planned this season. One surprising bright spot this season has been tight end Ryan Griffin. He has really emerged in recent weeks and seems to be one of Sam Darnold’s favorite targets. The Jets must feel good about Ryan Griffin because they announced that they have signed him to a contract extension. Mike Garafolo is reporting this is a three-year deal with 4 million guaranteed.

Griffin, who signed with the Jets in the offseason, has started every game this year and has set a career high with four touchdowns. The 6’6″ tight end, who will turn 30 in January, has 225 receiving yards on the season. Last week he had 109 yards receiving and a touchdown. He was originally a 6th round pick of the Texans in the 2013 NFL draft. Here are his career numbers.
