Gardner revealed on Twitter that he will be returning to the University of Cincinnati with the hope of graduating in the summer.
«Although I had a 3.5 cumulative GPA after my junior year of college, I never got my degree because I wanted to leave early and fulfill (sic) my dream of playing in the NFL… With that being said, I am back enrolled in classes and on track to graduate in the summer,» he tweeted Saturday.

Gardner made history Friday when he was named first-team All-Pro, becoming the first rookie cornerback to earn first-team honors since Ronnie Lott as a member of the San Francisco 49ers in 1981.
Gardner was the fourth pick in last year’s NFL Draft out of Cincinnati. He led the NFL with 20 pass breakups, and he didn’t allow a touchdown all year, or his entire college career.

The Jets went 7-10 this season, but lost their final six games of the season. They weren’t officially eliminated from playoff contention until Week 17, and had it been for better quarterback play during the season, they’d probably be setting up for a game.
