The Jets’ lone All-Pro player from the 2021 season has had talks with the team about a new contract.
Braxton Berrios was selected as the first-team kick returner in voting conducted by the Associated Press after leading the league with an average of 30.4 yards per return and taking one kick back for a touchdown. Berrios said on Pardon My Take that he and the Jets have spoken about a deal that would bring him back to the team for a fourth season.
Berrios said “we’ll see what happens” in those discussions while adding that he thinks the Jets are moving the right way with head coach Robert Saleh.
“Truly, truly, I think they’re heading in a very good direction,” Berrios said, via SNY.tv. “I love the coaching staff there. Most of ’em, they’re young, they know what they’re doing, communicate well and Saleh is a phenomenal coach.”
In addition to his kick return work, Berrios caught 46 passes for 431 yards and two touchdowns and ran seven times for 40 yards and two scores.
