It didn’t take ex-Jet Ryan Griffin long to find a new home.
The tight end, who was recently released by New York, is joining the Bears. Chicago signed Griffin to a one-year deal worth $2.25 million on Friday, per Aaron Wilson.
Griffin appeared in 42 games for the Jets from 2019-2021. He totaled 70 catches, 667 yards and seven touchdowns. Griffin had just 27 receptions for 261 yards and two scores last season. Cutting him saved the Jets around $3 million in salary cap space.
Griffin became expendable after New York inked CJ Uzomah and Tyler Conklin in free agency. The more productive duo will be Gang Green’s new starters at tight end.
