New York Jets defensive tackle John Franklin-Myers has reportedly agreed to a contract extension, as reported by DJ Bien-Aime of the New York Daily News.
A new four-year agreement worth $55 million ($30 million guaranteed) would keep Franklin-Myers in green until the 2025 season, according to a report by Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus.
According to Over The Cap, his $30 million guaranteed is tied for 20th-most among edge rushers with his colleague Carl Lawson. Franklin-Myers’ annual salary average of $13.8 million places it in the bottom 20 of all companies in the sector.
As a result of this rumored deal, Franklin-Myers will continue his career with the Jets, which began in 2019 when Joe Douglas claimed him off waivers.
Franklin-Myers was drafted by the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams in the fourth round of the previous season. Before being released at the end of training camp, he made headlines for getting a sack on Tom Brady on the Rams’ Super Bowl trip.
Franklin-Myers was placed on injured reserve for the entire 2019 metropolitan season, but he made headlines when he returned to action in 2020 and set personal bests with 19 tackles (5 for a loss) and 3 sacks.
He was a formidable pressure creator, as evidenced by the fact that he was the third-best pressure producer among all NFL defensive tackles (with 14.4% of his pass-rush snaps yielding pressure).
