The Jets didn’t want to let offensive lineman Conor McDermott get away in the offseason.
The team announced Friday that they have signed McDermott to a one-year extension. McDermott is in the final year of his rookie contract.
McDermott joined the Jets as a waiver claim last year and appeared in seven games. He’s played in eight games this season and all of his appearances have come in a reserve role. McDermott has played 125 offensive snaps and 23 special teams snaps so far this year.
McDermott entered the league as a Patriots seventh-rounder in 2017, but didn’t make the team and made his regular season debut with the Bills later that year.
