The Jets did not tender or make a qualifying offer to OLB Frankie Luvu, according to multiple reports.

That makes Luvu an unrestricted free agent. He joins LB Harvey Langi, who also did not receive a tender.

Luvu, 24, has only played for the Jets since entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State in 2018. Luvu has played in 40 games for New York since then, recording 59 tackles, six sacks and 16 QB hits as a rotational defender.

Luvu is coming off a two-sack 2020 in which he also notched 25 tackles and played a career-high 238 special teams snaps despite missing time on injured reserve with a groin injury.
