Quincy Enunwa just signed a long term deal to stay with the Jets for years to come, but that hasn’t stopped him from thinking about life after football.
Enunwa has been spending some time with the Connor Group in order to give occupational mentorships for current and former players. While Enunwa’s playing days are far from over, he wants to take the time now to get a head start on his time after football.
“For me, I want to make sure that I know what I’m going to do after I’m done playing football,” Enunwa told Fox Business’ Stuart Varney on Wednesday. “It’s good to kind of dive into things right now just to get a bit of a background so that when I’m done, I can jump right in.”
The 26-year-old wideout is entering his fifth season with the Green and White. After only playing in one game in his rookie season, Enunwa burst onto the scene in 2015 with 22 catches and 315 yards. The following year Enunwa played in all 16 games with 13 starts. He had the best year of his career with 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns.
However, injuries have played a huge factor in his career. Enunwa was forced to miss the entire 2017 season with a neck injury. He made it back in time for last season, but again the injury bug haunted him. He only managed to play in 11 games. Enunwa finished the season with 38 catches for 449 yards and one touchdown.
Given his injury history, it’s no surprise that Enunwa is thinking about life after football.
