The Jets have agreed to re-sign inside offensive lineman Dan Feeney on a one-year contract, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
After signing a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Jets, Feeney, who will turn 28 in May, quickly became a fan favorite among Jets supporters thanks to his antics at New York Islanders games throughout the offseason.
He made three relief starts, one at left guard and two at the center, adding some solid depth late in the season
Although the Indiana graduate frequently struggles in pass protection, he demonstrated in 2021 that he can occasionally succeed in the run game.
Feeney, a passable athlete, appeared to fit in well with the Jets’ running strategy during his late-season play and contributed to some amazing rushing success.
Feeney is now the primary backup offensive lineman on the Jets’ roster, along with Greg Van Roten, Conor McDermott (who was re-signed before free agency), and Chuma Edoga.
