(NFL.COM) – The Jets’ franchise tag-worthy defender has been sidelined by an ankle injury that could set up an interesting timeline for return.
Marcus Maye will be out for three to four weeks due to the injury, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday.
With Maye standing as New York’s top defensive player, it’s a huge loss for a team that is still winless and desperate for a lucky break, not an unfortunate one.
It also might lead to their separation.
During the lead-up to New York placed the franchise tag on Maye, the safety said he wouldn’t rule out requesting a trade if he received the tag.
The Jets followed up by tagging him to keep him under team control for 2021 and then failed to come to terms on a long-term deal just one year after letting their other top defender, Jamal Adams, force his way to Seattle via trade.
