The day after their Week 9 outing on November 7, the New York Jets revealed that defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins suffered a dislocated elbow. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that it would be a four-to-six-week timetable, meaning the Jets will have to either find a replacement or promote one from within. Ex-NYJ defensive lineman and CBS Sports analyst Leger Douzable had a suggestion that could serve as a short-term fix — preseason fan favorite Tanzel Smart. “Would love to see Tanzel Smart elevated for his pass rush ability inside,” voiced Douzable on Twitter, and his thought caught the attention of a current NYJ starter.John Franklin-Myers Supports Tanzel Smart PromotionThe response was simple, but there’s some history behind it. “No lie!” wrote John Franklin-Myers, who has ironically become the popular fan theory for how to best replace Rankins.

    Getty New York Jets DT Sheldon Rankins (#98) helps trip up Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (#28) in 2022. The New York Jets have a winning streak heading into Week 6 — yes, you heard me correctly. While it’s unclear if Gang Green has officially turned the corner and morphed into an AFC playoff contender, the more obvious observation is that this rookie class is something special. The Jets can build a powerhouse around this core but they still need impact veterans to step up along the way. One that’s been doing so throughout the first five weeks of the 2022 season is defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins — despite getting very little fanfare.Jets Analyst Credits Sheldon Rankins for Bounce-Back YearRankins is having a bit of a bounce-back campaign after cut rumors swirled around him throughout the offseason, and Jets X-Factor film analyst Michael Nania is giving him his due.

    Getty Two former New York Jets defensive linemen celebrating after executing a sack during an NFL contest. The New York Jets have an overflowing amount of needs heading into the offseason. While some of their roster holes are obvious, others aren’t as clear. One sneaky need for the team is at defensive tackle. Former sixth-round pick Foley Fatukasi is a pending free agent and there has been no public indication from either side that a contract extension is close. With that level of uncertainty hanging in the air, the Jets have to hope for the best and expect the worst. ALL the latest Jets news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Jets newsletter here!

During the end-of-season interviews, a few teammates owned up to their nicknames including Sheldon Rankins and Quinnen Williams.

    Getty New York Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins celebrates a fumble recovery on September 12, 2021. General manager Joe Douglas hasn’t had the best luck with his 2021 free-agent class. The New York Jets inked 11 veterans during the initial signing frenzy in March and four of them suffered long-term injuries before the season reached Week 2. That list included Carl Lawson, Vinny Curry, Lamarcus Joyner and Jarrad Davis. Of course, that doesn’t even mention minor the injuries that have befallen players like Tyler Kroft, Keelan Cole, Tevin Coleman and Justin Hardee. This crop of veterans has been through the wringer and outside of Corey Davis, the success has been minimal.

New Orleans has four consecutive NFC South titles, netting double-digit victories in each of those years. But now Rankins is with the Jets, a team trying to turn around its fortunes with new head coach Robert Saleh. Rankins said in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio that he’s been encouraged by how his new teammates have taken what Saleh’s preached to heart. “I’ve watched it grow. I’ve watched guys get more comfortable — offensively, defensively, special teams,” Rankins said. “I’ve watched competition. And I’ve watched what he’s really trying to breed, and it’s something special. Everyone’s buying in. Everyone’s coming in every day with the mindset of, we’re not just here to [say], ‘Maybe we’ll do alright this year.’ No, guys are coming...
    (CBSNewYork)- The New York Jets are looking to jump-start their rebuild after bottoming out to a 2-14 record in 2020. They jettisoned head coach Adam Gase, traded former third overall pick Sam Darnold to Carolina, and have made a number of new signings. The team’s biggest move, they hope, was naming Robert Saleh the new head coach for the franchise and hopefully the last new head coach for years to come. For one of the team’s new signings, defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins, Saleh is just what the team needs to turnaround what has been an extended tough stretch.

    The idea of playing in Robert Saleh’s defense was enough to draw two defensive linemen to sign with the Jets. “I love the way they’re always attacking,” new defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins said on a Zoom call with reporters Tuesday. “I feel like one of the things that makes me the player I am is my explosion, my get-off, being able to be disruptive. Seeing the way he deployed those guys when they were in San Fran and the type of havoc they caused, I mean truly winning games with their front four, that got me excited. With me feeling healthy again and feeling back to myself, I feel like I can slide right in and do nothing but dominate in that front.” Rankins signed a two-year deal with the Jets last month after spending his entire career with the Saints. Rankins has dealt with Achilles tendon injuries in recent years, but said he is fully healthy and ready to go. “I’m 100 percent healthy,” Rankins said. “I feel like I’m able to do all the things I was able...

Rankins agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $17 million with the Jets on Sunday.

    Cameron Jordan showed some big love to former Saints teammate Sheldon Rankins after he signed a new contract with the New York Jets.  In free agency, it can be tough for players to see their friends sign elsewhere and join a new team. At the same time, you know guys are fired up for one another when they land some big money. This is exactly the case for Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan and Sheldon Rankings.

    The New York Jets make a sneaky, under-the-radar signing to add Sheldon Rankins to their defensive line rotation. The New York Jets continue to make interesting moves in NFL free agency. They have signed former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins to a two-year deal worth $17 million to amplify their defensive line rotation. Rankins was a former No. 12 overall pick by the Saints out of Louisville back in 2016. He had spent his entire five-year NFL career in New Orleans, playing in 63 games and recording 17.5 sacks from the defensive tackle position. Though he was never a Pro Bowler, Rankins did have eight sacks in 2018 and had been a big part of the Saints’ last four NFC South division championship teams.

    The Jets’ latest addition adds to a strength rather than addressing a weakness. The team agreed to a deal with defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins on Sunday, a source confirmed. The NFL Network reported it was a two-year deal worth up to $17 million. Rankins spent the past five seasons with the Saints, who drafted him No. 12 overall in 2016 out of Louisville. The 6-foot-2, 305-pounder started 33 games in New Orleans, but only one in the last two years. Injuries have been an issue for Rankins. He was on injured reserve in both 2019 and 2020 with ankle and knee injuries. The Jets must be betting on Rankins, who turns 27 next month, now being able to stay healthy. He is known as a strong run defender, but does not generate much of a pass rush. PFF credits him with 43 total pressures in 738 snaps in the last two years. The site ranked him the 65th interior defensive lineman out of 125. He has 17 ½ sacks and 44 tackles for loss in his career. His best season...

The deal is reportedly for two-years, $17 million. The #Jets are making another add to their defense: DT Sheldon Rankins.

The soon-to-be sixth-year player out of Louisville was drawing a decent amount of interest around the league.

    North Carolina: Peaceful march to the polls met with police pepper spray and arrests Restaurant closings: IHOP may close up to 100 underperforming locations amid the pandemic Saints DT Sheldon Rankins to miss a few weeks © Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Sheldon Rankins is hitting the shelf again. The Saints’ defensive tackle suffered an MCL injury during Sunday’s win over the Bears, a source tells Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football (Twitter link). The source told Underhill it’s expected to knock the run-stuffer out for “about three weeks.” It’s a big blow to a New Orleans defensive front that is usually elite at stopping the run. The 12th overall pick of the 2016 draft, Rankins has developed into a quality starter for the Saints. This is unfortunately his third straight year with a significant injury, as first he tore an Achilles during the 2018 playoffs. He missed the first few games of the 2019 season while recovering from that, then missed the last few with an ankle injury. His best season was that 2018 campaign when he also made a lot of...
