This should not get overlooked.  Until now, the players have only seen stars dragged out, released, or traded.  Now they've seen a guy who was drafted low play hard and earn a star-level payday.  This

At some point, you have to invest in good young players instead of trading them away for draft picks.   He’s flashing, is young, and plays an impact position. This makes sense. 

Brilliant move by Douglas, the contract may seem "pricey" right now but Franklin-Myers play is pointing to a 10+ Sack / 10+ TFL season.  And that kind of production would be worth 15+ million a ye

Wow, need to see the guarantees, but either way he is making some real nice coin. Not too shabby for a 4th round pick that was cut after one year and picked up on waivers.

13.75 average - that’s a helluva commitment 

Want to see the guarantees. Happy if he keeps playing the way he is.

I thought they said 30 guaranteed

Think he's only 25-26.  If he's pulling down 8-10 sacks a year, think he can in this system, and continues being disruptive, $13.75M is cheap. Look what ER's are getting.

Yeah, their gambling on him, but if he hits, great deal.  He really has been impressive.

Aren’t we overpaying here?

If he stays on his current pace and gets 12 sacks a year- that’s worth being the 20th highest paid edge 

it’s a lotta dough for sure. Based on precedent I’m guessing JD front loaded the guarantees in the first 2 years. 
 

Cap is supposed to go significantly up soon.  Hope we look back on this as a bargain in 3 years.

just never expected a waiver wire pickup to blow up like this and be considered a core guy. Love that he’s only 25 and now JFM, QW, Huff, Carl Lawson and Rankins are all signed for next year.

Franklin-Myers is unique because he has DT size and strength (6-4 290)
but has the ability to bend off the edge like a smaller man 

Franklin-Myers looks really good out there, so it’s fine, but not brilliant. He might be buying a stock at it’s high here.

“Brilliant” would’ve been doing this before the season, before he got his dollars up even more. 

Good for JFM, but if done in the offseason I’m not sure the same extension would’ve been $10MM/yr. 

At least he’s not waiting until after the player’s final under-contract game had been played and then beginning extension talks, like Maccagnan.

This is correct

I really hope this works out. JFM has been excellent so far, but 4 years 55/30 kinds of excellent?  We’ll see. As long as he doesn’t pull a Wilkerson this is a solid signing.
 

I like that JD is starting to commit to players. I’d like to see a few more of these soon. The cap space is there.

John Franklin-Myers

The Jets defensive had a big day on Sunday vs the Titans with 7 sacks. John Franklin-Myers had one of those sacks, his 3rd of the season. On Thursday his meteoric rise was rewarded with a 5 year, 55 million contract.

Franklin-Myers was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He played in Super Bowl LIII against New England Patriots and sacked QB Tom Brady. At the end of the following training camp, in August 2019, he was waived by the Rams.

Franklin-Meyers and the Jets have agreed to a four-year contract extension for $55 million with $30.2 million guaranteed, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

It’s a huge payday for the 25-year-old and a nod to him being a focal point of the future for Gang Green.

In his third season with New York, Franklin-Myers has already started a career-high four games and has tallied three sacks, a forced fumble and 15 tackles.

The #Jets are giving DL John Franklin-Meyers a 4-year, $55M deal that includes $30.2M in guarantees, source said. Massive payday for a rising star for NYJ. 💰💰💰 https://t.co/jVrBi53KS1

How many years did we have control before this deal?

couldnt we keep him for a few more years. 

He was due to hit FA after this year. I think because we picked him up off waivers, he was still on his original deal.

People quibling over a few million are being silly ... salary cap will increase and his deal will expire before the zach extension. And ... its a premium position bitches.
