I’m going to come back stronger. I know that. I know it’s going to be a long recovery process, but I’m up for it. I’m looking forward to it as much as I can be.”

Jarmon, who just turned 22 on Nov. 20, was chosen in the third round of July’s supplemental draft after losing his NCAA eligibility. He finished his rookie with nine tackles, two hurries and a pass defensed while seeing limited action in 11 games.
