Echols started 14 games as a rookie and had two interceptions, including one off of Tom Brady.
He asked for Brady to autograph the ball after the game.
After the Jets added Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed last season, Echols became mainly a special teams player.
He is the team’s top backup at outside cornerback.
