Quincy Enunwa strikes first for Jets in Week 1
By Jason Rodriguez
The New York Jets may have found a hidden prize in wide receiver Quincy Enunwa who has developed his game to deliver big results in 2016.
Last season, many fans of the New York Jets wondered what Quincy Enunwa would do entering his third season in the NFL. He wasn’t given much of chance back in 2014 and was drafted late in the 6th round by the Jets.

In his rookie season, Enunwa played in 12 games and had a total of 315 yards and averaged 14.3 yards per reception. For his size, he is built like a middle linebacker as he is 6 foot 2 and 225 pounds.
He will cause major problems against opposing defenses due to everything he brings to the table. He started off on the right foot this season by recording 7 catches for a total of 54 yards with one touchdown.
Enunwa wasn’t given as many snaps because he is coming back from a concussion injury but make no mistake about it, he’ll be a force to reckon with this season. For how many snaps he took, Enunwa made the best of it and deliver. He helped out fellow wide receivers Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall get open for the catches they were able to make plays with.
