DT Leki Fotu headed to Jets

The Arizona Cardinals have lost their first free agent of the offseason. After they agreed to terms with two defensive linemen, one of their own is on the way out.

According to multiple reports, Leki Fotu is headed to the New York Jets.

Fotu, a fourth-round pick in 2020, spent four years in Arizona. He became a starter last season, playing 11 games. He had a career-high 2.5 sacks to go with 28 total tackles, five tackles for loss and two quarterback hits.

He was the only player remaining on the team from the Cardinals’ 2020 draft class. Four years after that class, no one remains on the team.

He joins former San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw in the AFC East.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, it is a $2.5 million deal (seemingly for one year) with a max of $4 million.
