According to Connor Hughes of The Athletic, the offensive lineman McDermott agreed to a new one-year agreement with New York that will give him a signing bonus of $250,000 in addition to a basic salary of $1.3 million for the upcoming season.
The only portion of McDermott’s base salary in 2022 that the Jets guaranteed was $200,000. He has the potential to earn an additional $750,000 through playing-time bonuses.
In each of the past three seasons, McDermott has spent the most of his time with the Jets serving primarily as a backup tackle. You can count on him to continue in that post in 2022.

McDermott was sent to injured reserve on September 1, 2021. On November 13, he was sent into active duty. McDermott scored the first touchdown of his career on December 26 against the Jacksonville Jaguars by collecting a pass from Zach Wilson.
