New York Jets place Quincy Enunwa, Josh Bellamy on PUP list

The Jets placed the injury-riddled wide receiver on the reserve/physically unable to perform list on Tuesday, meaning he will not play in 2020, a source confirmed.

Enunwa, a sixth-round pick out of Nebraska in 2014, has played in just 12 games over the past three seasons because of injuries. Fellow wide receiver Josh Bellamy will also be parked on PUP.

Enunwa's $6 million salary for this season is fully guaranteed, and it would cost the Jets $11.4 million in dead money on the salary cap if he's released now.

The Jets also waived DE Charles Tapper, CB Kyron Brown, RB Jalin Moore and WR Keon Hatcher. In 2021, Enunwa has $4.1 million in injury guarantees. He revealed after the season he has spinal stenosis.

Injuries have plagued Enunwa throughout his career, but he showed serious promise when he was healthy.

Quincy Enunwa's season is over before it even got close to beginning.

While both moves were expected, it's certainly not the way the Jets wanted to start their 2020 season. The Jets had no choice but to keep him on the roster. Hopefully, he'll be able to resume his career sometime soon. "It's just about how well I heal up and then we'll take it from there". He had 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns that year.

He's scheduled to make $2.25 million this season. Bellamy, 30, had two catches for 20 yards a year ago, his only season with the Jets. Last year, he appeared in seven games for Gang Green before landing on IR with a shoulder injury.

Hatcher played three games with the Raiders in 2018, Tapper played two games for the Cowboys in 2017 and Moore went on the non-football injury list after signing with the Jets as an undrafted free agent previous year.
