According to DJ Bien-Aime of the New York Daily News, defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers and the New York Jets have reached an agreement on a contract extension.
According to a second report by Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus, Franklin-Myers will remain profitable through the 2025 season thanks to a new four-year agreement worth $55 million ($30 million of which is guaranteed).
Over The Cap states that the total amount of guaranteed money, $30 million, is the same as that of teammate Carl Lawson and is tied for 20th most among edge rushers. With an average yearly revenue of $13.8 million, Franklin-Myers is ranked 20th in this category.
Franklin-Myers’ rumored deal will see him prolong a Jets career that began in 2019 when Joe Douglas claimed him off waivers. The NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams selected Franklin-Myers in the fourth round, and he made his league debut the previous year.
He distinguished himself by sacking Tom Brady during the Rams’ Super Bowl visit before being included in their final training camp cuts.
Franklin-Myers was forced into action during the 2020 season after missing his first metropolitan season due to injury, and he surprised observers by recording career highs of 19 tackles (5 for a loss) and three sacks.
In the NFL, he was the third-best pressure producer among qualified defensive tackles, producing pressure on 14.4% of his pass-rush snaps.
