  • Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Reunites with Bucs

    Whitehead (calf) has agreed to a two-year, $9 million contract with the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Whitehead spent his first four seasons in Tampa Bay before a two-year stint with the Jets. He didn't miss a game in New York, compiling 186 tackles in 34 appearances. Whitehead exited the 2023 season finale with a calf injury, but he's expected to be healthy once the Buccaneers resume team activities and can be tentatively penciled in as their starting strong safety for 2024.

  • Jets' Jordan Whitehead: Three tackles shy of 100 in 2023

    Whitehead (calf) finished the 2023 season with 97 tackles (65 solo) and four interceptions among his nine passes defensed.

    Whitehead picked off Josh Allen three times in Week 1, and while he notched only one interception the rest of the season, the starting strong safety was a key contributor in the Jets' elite secondary. He set new career highs in tackles and passes defensed while appearing in all 17 games, though Whitehead exited the season finale due to a calf injury. Once the calf is healed, Whitehead will likely generate plenty of interest as a free agent, with the Jets among his potential suitors.

  • Jets' Jordan Whitehead: Leaves with injury

    Whitehead (calf) exited Sunday's game against the Patriots and is doubtful to return, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    Whitehead's early departure will leave the Jets with little depth at safety. In his absence, Ashtyn Davis will likely take over at strong safety. Whitehead recorded no statistics prior to his exit and will finish the 2023 season with 97 tackles, nine pass breakups, four interceptions and one half-sack over 17 appearances.

  • Jets' Jordan Whitehead: Will play Sunday

    Whitehead (knee) is active ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders.

    After a week of limited practice sessions, Whitehead will play through his knee issue in Week 16. The 26-year-old safety has been having the best season of his career through 14 games, logging 84 total tackles, nine pass deflections and four interceptions. He's expected to start alongside Tony Adams in the Jets' secondary Sunday.

    Whitehead (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders.

    Whitehead was limited in all three of the Jets' practices during the week. If Whitehead's unable to play Sunday, Ashtyn Davis would likely see additional playing time at safety.

  • Jets' Jordan Whitehead: Approaching career high in tackles

    Whitehead had eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 30-0 loss to the Dolphins.

    Whitehead was the leading tackler for the Jets in the lopsided loss. He needs five tackles to tie last season's career high of 89, and Whitehead has already tied his career high with nine passes defensed, including a career-best four interceptions.

  • Jets' Jordan Whitehead: Nine tackles in Week 11 loss

    Whitehead recorded nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 32-6 loss to Buffalo.

    Whitehead has notched exactly nine tackles in consecutive games, giving him at least that many in four of 10 appearances this season. The starting strong safety found less success in this rematch after intercepting Josh Allen three times when these AFC East rivals met in Week 1.
