Veteran quarterback Josh McCown recently spoke to the media about what it felt like working again with wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. He gave him a huge compliment as to who he reminds him of.

New York Jets training camp has officially begun as excitement is in the air for what awaits over the next few months. From intense positional battles to working out all the kinks in playbooks, the Jets are preparing for the task at hand. Veteran quarterback Josh McCown is back and ready to continue where he left off from last season.

Except for this time around, he will finally get to work with veteran wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. He’s coming off a severe neck injury that unfortunately made him miss all of last season. Enunwa is back in action as he was moving around and hauling in passes from McCown to start training camp on the right foot.

Ideally, the Jets are hoping that Enunwa returns and doesn’t miss a beat since it could be a scary situation for opponents if he and Robby Anderson are able to be on the field at the same time. The two wide receivers bring a lot to the table and if healthy and performing, could be the biggest contributors on offense.

McCown always loves what he’s seeing so far out of Enunwa. Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what McCown said about Enunwa including a huge compliment when comparing him to another player he used to play with:

On how Quincy Enunwa looks…

Quincy was good today, looked good today and was running good. It is great to have Q back out there, just his energy and his work ethic is great to have on the field.

On what Enunwa brings to the offense…

I had the opportunity to play with Anquan Boldin and Quincy kind of has that after catch, that tough mentality. He reminds me a lot of Anquan, so he brings that edge to an offense. He gets the ball in his hands and makes plays. He is a tough tackle and he plays with incredible will. Everyday he is on the field with us and is back I think is a good day for us and I am glad to have him out here.

Talk about a huge compliment given by McCown to Enunwa. Boldin ended his career with 13,779 receiving yards, 1,076 receptions, and 82 touchdowns. He was always known as a fierce competitor that came through in the clutch, especially in the red zone.

Could Enunwa continue being an efficient red-zone receiver? Time will tell but he undoubtedly has the skillset to bounce back nicely this upcoming season for the Jets. If everything falls into place, he could once again be one of their top receiving options like he was back in 2016.
