Jets Sign Tight End Tyler Conklin

Still looking to surround quarterback Zach Wilson with as many weapons as possible, the Jets have signed their second tight end of the free agency period by adding Tyler Conklin.  The former Tennessee Titan had his first real chance to show what he could do in 2021 and in 12 starts he didn’t disappoint.

Conklin caught 61 balls for 593 yards and 3 touchdowns for the Titans after picking up just 32 catches in 6 starts over his previous three seasons.

He joins former Benglas tight end CJ Uzomah in the tight end room, meaning the Jets have made a significant upgrade to what was one of the worst tight end depth charts in the NFL in 2021.

In both Conklin and Uzomah, the Jets have a pair of tight ends who can line up in a variety of spots on offense as both are more than capable blockers who can also keep defenses honest with their ability to catch the ball.
