Rankins was very good the last full season he played, but that was 2 full seasons ago now. If he's fully healthy, he's still only 26.

This move makes me think the Jets 100% think Franklin-Meyers can be a starting edge in this scheme (which would be great) or he doesn't fit at all(which would be bad).

Agreed.  I also think it makes Nathan Sheperd a long shot to make the roster.

Joe Thuney and Corey Linsley is *not* a one or the other proposition for the Jets. If Thuney were to accept the Jets offer, they would still be interested in Linsley 👀

If Rankins is a DT in a 4-3 doesn't that put him more in competition with Fatukasi and/or Shepherd (for rotational) than JFM?

Curious to see the terms of the deal (guarantees, incentives, etc) because that seems kind of rich for Rankins.

I'm sure there will be a lower base, with incentives that could max it at $17M.

If he can stay healthy, he's going to be a very good addition. The Dline is going to be formidable.

Not bad player but not really need . To give out 17 mill.  The Dline is definitely gonna strength of this defense.

Jets are likely planning on drafting all Offense/CBs in the draft.

What I was meaning is that Franklin-Meyers is a bit of a tweener.  He's probably not a true 4-3 end(I wouldn't think at least) and he's probably not a 4-3 DT either.  He's best suited for what he was last year a 3-4 End.  

I actually assumed(maybe incorrectly) they would have tried to roll with JFM as an undersized DT, but I don't think this move would indicate that's what the plan is.

If we get another edge rusher...we don't really need amazing corners.

Our corners have been terrible because they have been asked to do an impossible job. I think we are going to be a lot better than people think. We haven't had an edge rusher in forever.

Got to be health/games played type of incentive deal, I'd think but one of those if he can stay healthy could really be fun next to Q.Will

Wasn’t it Lawson Q Foley JFM as the 4 down lineman? Where does Rankins play? 

I assume he'll be rotational with Foley who played less then 50% of snaps.

Don't love it, not a position of need. Decent player but both Myers and Fatukasi were graded higher, and cost less. It's time to get some corners and some more O help.

You need rotation at DT... Lawson and JFM probably edge

I think there's been a misconception going around about Saleh's defense.

I've seen many people here clamoring for another EDGE like Lawson, who isn't the best run defender.

The other 4-3 DE needs to be a stout run defender while also having ability to rush passer.  Physically, think more Jadaveon Clowney, J.J. Watt, Leonard Williams or Shaun Ellis rather than Dee Ford, Carl Lawson, John Abraham.

The way I see the Dline depth chart is on early downs...Rankins, Foley, Q, and Lawson.  And Rankins will either kick inside or JFM will.

So...

DE - Rankins, Phillips

DT - Q, JFM

NT - Foley, Sheppard

DE - Lawson, Zuniga

They're paying him 17 million to start on the EDGE.  At least I think that's the case.

With the clear focus on defense in free agency, I'm convinced Douglas is going to attack offense and the CB position hard in the draft. I expect him to try to use the #23 to trade down more than once and maximize his picks in rounds #2 and #3. You could be looking at the Jets drafting as many as seven players the first two days of the draft.

Rankins would be DT and JFM Edge

Very deep IOL, WR, CB, and RB draft

 We're clearly looking to be able to rush 4 and apply pressure.

The incentives and Rankins' ability to stay healthy will be the defining factor.

But cool. Hopefully this means we don't draft any defensive lineman!

2018 his best season. 10 and 12 games last 2 seasons. If healthy & next to Q he could have a resurgence. Probably means Shepherd or FF lose PT.

This is pretty much the cost to sign someone to a muti-year deal. Had it been a one year deal, we're looking at 1 year $5-6.5 mil, however it's great to have an option year incase the player is actually good. Therefore we can aviod giving out huge pay days for fluke seasons like we did with Henry Anderson.
