John Franklin-Myers ‘back in the lab’ during the NY Jets bye week (Video)

JFM is ‘back in the lab’ with coach Brandon Jordan

A week off is anything but for newly minted long-term New York Jets defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers.

The defensive lineman met up with former CFL champion Brandon Jordan to work on his craft during the Jets’ bye week. Jordan shared a video of Franklin-Myers’ progress on his social media accounts.


Franklin-Myers has been one of the more pleasant surprises of the Jets’ season so far.

Through five games, he has earned 18 tackles (one short of his career-best), including three sacks. He has been the fact of the Jets’ revamped pass rush, one that has tallied 13 sacks (tied for the fifth-best tally in the league) despite losing touted newcomer Carl Lawson). That includes a seven-sack output in the Week 4 win over Tennessee.

Franklin-Myers’ efforts have been rewarded with a four-year contract extension blessed with $30 million guaranteed. That apparently hasn’t stopped him from working on his craft with Jordan.

Jordan runs the Houston-based “Trench Performance” academy, one that has hosted over 100 active NFL players, according to his business’ Facebook page. Franklin-Myers and defensive line partner Foley Fatukasi are among the group, as is their former teammate and defending Super Bowl champion Steve McLendon.

Jordan bestowed further dedication to the Stephen F. Austin alum through an Instagram post that highlighted his 21 quarterback pressures over the pre-bye slate, taking particular pride in his “Stutter Swipe!”.

Following their bye week, Franklin-Myers and the Jets (1-4) return to action on Oct. 24 when they hit the road to complete their yearly set with the New England Patriots (1 p.m. ET, CBS).
