The Jets and guard
Brian Winters re-signed a four year $29 million dollar contact with $15 million guaranteed.
Winters, made $4 million total since being drafted in Round 3 in 2013 by the Jets then General manager John Idzik.
Winters had become a starter on the Jets offensive.
He was out on Injured Reserve Game 14 against Miami with a torn rotator cuff injury.
He was the Jets’ third-round pick (72nd overall) of the 2013 draft out of Kent State.
Winters became the left guard starter in Game 5 of his rookie season. He started the first six games at LG in 2014 before suffering a season-ending ACL injury.
In 2015, Winters returned as a RG, replacing the injured Willie Colon and making 10 starts. Winters started 13 games this season and 41 for 51 overall.
Winters has graded well in blocking schemes with reports that his pass protection is something he needs to improve.
