Jets sign 'Sticky Hands' Ryan Griffin to three-year extension
"The Jets have signed TE Ryan Griffin to a multi-year extension ....Griffin, who signed with the Jets July 22, has started all 10 games this year and leads the team with a career-high four touchdowns. The 29-year-old has reeled in 25 catches for 225 yards.....Griffin, a seventh-year pro from UConn,was drafted by the Texans in 2013 and has a career 1,760 yards and 11 touchdowns on 161 receptions.....The deal is worth up to $10.8 million, according to NFL Network, and includes $4 million guaranteed. Griffin was scheduled to become a free agent in March.
Congrats to former Husky Tyler Davis on being selected in the 6th round by JAX. He gave it his all for 4 years in Storrs (with 47 recs & 7 TD's), coming to Uconn as a QB under Diaco and finishing his career as a TE.... his last season in CFB as a grad-transfer at GA Tech.....
From Yahoo Sports on which CFB programs coach recruits up into NFL picks:
" Also of note in the AAC, Connecticut has produced a surprisingly high amount of top draft choices (seven) relative to the program’s lack of on-field success. Temple and UConn were matched at seven by UCF, a program with a much more fertile recruiting base. "
