Jennings signed a three-year contract with the Patriots on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jennings will remain in New England, where the 2020 third-round draft pick has spent his entire career up to this point.

A 2020 third-round pick, Jennings logged a new high with 649 defensive snaps in 2023, compared to his previous best of 337 in 2022.
