The 30-year-old officially left the football game in August 2020. However, his last snaps as a member of the Jets were in 2019.

Enunwa suffered a neck injury in the 2019 season opener against the Buffalo Bills. He missed this entire season and should return in 2020. Unfortunately, in May he was added to the PUP list and it was announced that Enunwa would be forced to miss this entire season as well.

Ultimately, he was forced into early retirement due to complications from that neck injury.

Now, after a few years away from the game, Enunwa is back at it Other side of the fence doing media.

His specific contributions to the Jets content team will serve as an analyst for the pre- and post-game shows across all official NYJ platforms throughout the 2022 season. Enunwa will be working with senior reporter Eric Allen for these studio shows.

The former Nebraska product entered the NFL in the sixth round in 2014 as the No. 209 overall pick.

He was part of the infamous “Idzik-12” draft class. Despite some arguments from Rex Ryan that they should pack those picks and postpone the draft, former GM John Idzik chose to stay pat and picked 12 players in a single class.

10 of those players were instant draft busts and were eventually flushed out of the league. Enunwa and offensive lineman Dakota Dozier (who’s had a solid career as a reserve and occasional starter) were the only success stories.

Enunwa’s career may have been brief, but his fire shone bright during his time in the League.

The former Cornhusker spent five years in the NFL, all with the Jets, and created an undeniable legacy. Enunwa was badass, never going down on first contact and always seemed to make the tough catch.

He was a fan favorite because he always fought for every yard and came from humble beginnings. Enunwa was a player who was incredibly relatable to the mutual fan and an easy guy to befriend.

It will be fun to see him on the other side of the table analyzing today’s jets. Enunwa should be able to bring a very unique perspective to the table that will be a welcome sight for fans.

Now the Jets must try to find their own version of Enunwa in 2022. A scrappy Glue-type who can light up the dressing room and create an infectious attitude that her team can take on with the world.
