Ahmad “Sos” Gardner has big offseason plans and they don’t involve football.
The Jets’ standout rookie cornerback announced Saturday that he is going to finish his college degree.
“Even though I had a 3.5 cumulative GPA after my 3rd year in college, I never got my degree because I wanted to leave early and [pursue] “My dream is to play in the NFL…… With that said, I’m back in classes and on course to graduate in the summer,” Gardner tweeted With three praying-hands emojis.
Gardner did not say where he intended to finish his studies, though he played three seasons at Cincinnati before being selected with the No. 4 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Gardner became the first Jets rookie since linebacker Larry Grantham in 1960 to be named a first-team All-Pro. The 22-year-old is also the first Jets cornerback to receive the honor since Darrelle Revis.
He led the NFL with 20 pass breakups and earned the top coverage grade of any player on Pro Football Focus.
Gardner reflected on his rookie season after the Jets’ 11-6 loss to the Dolphins last Sunday.
“Rookie year over,” Gardner began on Twitter. “The NFL is everything I thought it would be; A true blessing! Me and my dog @D7_Reed were able to go up against elite WRs week in and week out and dominate!! Most importantly, I was able to form a brotherhood with my teammates that will last a lifetime.
