New York brought back DE John Franklin-Myers, first-round G Alijah Vera-Tucker, G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and S Ashtyn Davis. They also activated practice squad WR Vyncint Smith and DE Hamilcar Rashed from the COVID-19 list.
Franklin-Myers, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Rams back in 2018 out of Stephen F. Austin. The Rams waived him coming out of the preseason and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Jets.
Franklin-Myers was in the final year of his four-year, $2.9 million contract when he signed a four-year, $55 million extension.
In 2021, Franklin-Myers has appeared in 14 games for the Jets, recording 32 total tackles, six sacks, a forced fumble, one interception and one pass deflection. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 14 edge defender out of 108 qualifying players.
