Twelve years ago Greg Senat played football for Elmont High School. 

Now he’ll continue playing ball about an hour from his old stomping ground, as an offensive lineman for the New York Jets.

On Tuesday, the Jets re-signed the 27-year-old Long Island native, after claiming him late last season.

Senat played football, basketball and lacrosse for the Spartans before getting a basketball scholarship to Wagner College.

But in 2016, Senat had an itch to get back on the gridiron.

His impressive college play and his big 6-foot-6, 305-pound frame got him drafted in the sixth round by the Baltimore Ravens in 2018.

He has also spent time with the Chiefs, Colts, Browns and Cowboys before being picked up by the Jets late last season off of waivers. All of his regular season game experience came in 2020 with the Cowboys, where he appeared in 10 games (no starts), mostly on special teams.

He’s expected to compete for a backup lineman position for Gang Green.
