TE Ryan Griffen Signs Multi-Year Extension (Update: 3 year - up to $10.8 mm w/incentives)

Recommended Posts

I didn't think Griffin would get his this early, mostly because I thought they would want to see a few more games out of him before doing this. But I guess take the "security" when you can get it. I hope he and Darnold keep getting work done.

Nice to see Douglas being proactive here with a midseason contract extension.

I’d guess that he’s going to continue to do this with players that he and Gase see as key players. Maybe Robbie is next...

I remember Herndon got injured in college and that’s part of why he fell us 

Did not know that. Thanks for the info

Good... Young, hungry & plays the position well... hopefully he'll improve & be a mainstay. 

Only thing that isn’t correct in your statement is young.   He’s 30 years old already.  Still a nice signing

Was coming to say that. I like the signing, Herndon has 2 years on his deal after this season. Griffin's contract likely has an out after 2 years which means we will then be able to decide whether we want to resign Herndon while having a reasonably priced TE on the roster in the event we don't.

He just became captain... somebody must like him. But he'll be 32, much more than what Ryan here just got a year for more than one year and I'm leery.

Still plays better than most of our 24 yr olds.

Pinch me. We actually did something we're supposed to do. For once I'm not just sitting on my couch with a beer in my hand yelling crap into the air? Did Joe Douglas actually hear me? This was an obvious move that somehow seems amazing for this team. I'm befuddlegasted .

I predicted 1 year $5m for DT as a high estimate. He signed for just under $3M with the Patriots but that was coming off an injury so I expect a slight increase.

Great number 2 TE and serviceable as a number 1 when needed.

As disappointing as the recent era has been, considering that we had that loser Tomlinson in this role last year, that’s a colossal upgrade.

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.

It’s a three-year extension for #Jets TE Ryan Griffin that’s worth up to $10.8 million with reachable incentives, source says. Griffin gets $4m guaranteed. I talked to Adam Gase about Griffin yesterday. He couldn’t say enough good things about him. I’ll have more on @NFLGameDay.

— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 24, 2019

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.

I didn't realize he's 29... I never heard of him before & thought he was new to the league... even still 29 is not old & he could play well for another 6-7 yrs...  which is good by me.

a 29 year old Ryan Griffin > a young, supple Jordan Legget/Jace Amaro

 

Go figure

CB could be half way there if Austin continues to work out.

S. No problems there as long as they don't trade Jamal

WR position is not a ghost town

LB position far from shabby.  Need that edge guy.

O-Line.  UG !!!!

One good off season could turn the roster into a playoff team

Safety is definitely set. Wide Receiver needs a stud at the top but the position isn't terrible.

CB I hope Austin is legit, he has to stay healthy and has a lot to prove. But even if he could be a # 2 kind of guy that would be huge. Cut Tru, keep Roberts for depth and let him be the 4th guy behind Poole. Then next year you are looking for 1 guy to be what Tru isn't.

When you find a player on a talent deprived roster, you keep the player. Even if he winds up being depth next year, it’s still solidly proactive.(especially when he’s a good locker room presence with early developing chemistry with #14)

May not make a pro bowl or anything... yet I still like this signing solely off of the precedent it sets with the locker room...
"Play well, get rewarded" 
That simple. 

Exactly right. Conversely a guy like Leo with all of his status and hair is gone. Sent to an even worse team than us.
It’s the right message with the right guy.

$3mil per for 3 years??? No sweat at all.
