In his rookie season, he played in 15 games being a starter in 10 of them, and recorded 31 tackles with nine sacks in the process. The following season, he became starting defensive end, which meant an increase in his playing time, and with that, higher numbers, thanks to his skills and understanding of the game. He had 55 tackles and 11 sacks, but still stayed on the league`s minimum wage. Nevertheless, after his third season and posting career high numbers with 77 tackles and 7.5 sacks, Jared received a new contract, worth $2.35 million over one year.
