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.

  1. if i ran the jets everyone would be on one day contracts with an option to renew at the end of the day.

  2. Hopefully he stays with the Jets.
    But he will get just one big contract (relatively speaking) and needs to maximize it. And the jets are a bad team so I can see wanting to play on a good team.

    I do wonder how much playing time he would have gotten if the Jets had a better offense.
