Sauce Gardner made his name in the NFL after just one season of play. The New York Jets cornerback was named a First-Team All-Pro member to put a bow on his incredible rookie season in the green and white.
Now, he’s headed back to school.
Gardner revealed on Twitter he will be going back to the University of Cincinnati in hopes of graduating in the summer.
“Even though I had a 3.5 cumulative GPA after my 3rd year in college, I never got to get my degree because I wanted to leave early & purse (sic) my dream of playing in the NFL…… With that being said, I’m back enrolled in classes and on course to graduate in the summer,” he tweeted Saturday.

Gardner made history when he became the first rookie corner to make First-team honors since Ronnie Lott did so as a member of the San Francisco 49ers in 1981.
His stellar play in college is the reason he was chosen fourth overall in last year’s draft. He led the NFL with 20 pass breakups, and he didn’t allow a touchdown all year, nor did he do that in his entire college career.
Sauce island is real.
The Jets went 7-10 this season but lost their final six games of the season. They were not officially eliminated from playoff contention until Week 17. The team is just a QB away from making some real noise.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
