2. John Franklin-Myers

This one may surprise some fans. Defensive end John Franklin-Myers is one of the most effective and versatile players upfront for the Jets. Franklin-Myers lines up on the edge for run downs then bumps inside on clear passing plays.

The SF Austin product came over in 2020 after he was claimed on waivers. He developed into a solid starter, inking a four-year, $55 million contract extension in 2021.

Over the last four seasons, Franklin-Myers recorded 125 total tackles with 17.5 sacks in New York. Due to the abundance of talent along the defensive line, the Jets could look to add more draft capital and free up some cap space to improve the offense.

The 27-year-old with have a $16.3 million cap hit in 2024, followed by a $17.4 million hit in 2025. New York has Jermaine Johnson, Quinnen Williams, and Will McDonald IV on the defensive line and could move on from Franklin-Myers.
