Jets' $24 Million Starter Is ‘likely’ Ending His Ny Career

BY Robert j. matthews

Uzomah, who is 30 years old, hasn't had great success as a tight end in his seven years with the Cincinnati Bengals.

He caught 163 passes for 1,591 yards and scored 13 touchdowns during that time. 

On average per season, Uzomah had 23 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

Based on those numbers, Uzomah performed just as well in his first season with the Jets as he did throughout his entire career. 

Uzomah caught 21 passes for 232 yards and scored two touchdowns in 2022.

But when you think about the money he got from the Jets, people expected more. 

He is the 16th highest-paid tight end in football, earning $8 million according to Over The Cap.

Yeboah started practicing with the Jets again on November 15. He hurt his hamstring before the season started and has been frozen all year.
