The Jets agreed to sign Tyler Kroft this week, adding depth to their tight end room.

Gang Green and the former Bills tight end agreed on a one-year, $2 million deal with $1.5 million guaranteed, according to The Athletic’s Connor Hughes. The guaranteed money is broken up between Kroft’s $1.25 million base salary and a $250,000 signing bonus. He also has a per-game roster bonus of $500,000 and $1 million tied to performance incentives for yards and receptions.

Kroft’s cap hit is $2 million.

Kroft’s arrival could mean the end of Ryan Griffin’s stay in New York. The Jets can recoup $1.8 million in salary relief if they part ways with the veteran tight end.
