When the Jets re-signed defensive tackle Nathan Shepherd, they didn’t spend a lot of money. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, the minimum annual salary that the 28-year-old will receive under his new contract is $1.035 million. Shepherd was also given a signing bonus of $50,000 and has a cap charge of $945,000 attached to his contract.
Shepherd did not register a sack in 2021 and has been prone to penalties, but he did play a career-high 495 defensive snaps last season, which was the most he has ever played in a single season. He established new highs for himself with 28 tackles and 12 pressures, while tying his previous high of eight quarterback hits.
Shepherd is one of the few Mike Maccagnan picks that the Jets still have on the roster. He joined the organization in 2018 after being selected in the third round of the draft. In advance of the 2022 season, he provides the Jets with an inexpensive defensive line depth option.
