Marcus Maye not expected to sign extension with Jets

The Jets and franchise tagged safety Marcus Maye are not expected to finalize an extension ahead of the upcoming deadline.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets claimed they were aggressive in talks with Maye, though Rapoport alleges “the team has not responded to his last proposal and that offer has been pulled off the table.” The deadline for franchise tagged players to sign an extension will pass in roughly 48 hours.

Marcus Maye issued franchise tag by Jets

In a move that was widely expected, the Jets are placing the franchise tag on safety Marcus Maye.

Fantasy Impact

Maye, 27, posted two sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, 88 tackles, and 11 passes defended over 16 starts in 2020. For the Jets, retaining Maye means a key defensive weapon will return for at least one more season. Maye provides a critical and experienced presence in defensive-minded head coach Robert Saleh's secondary. By addressing the contract of the talented safety, the Jets can turn their attention to other areas of focus in the draft and free agency. Maye becomes the second player—and second safety—to be tagged so far, joining Justin Simmons of the Broncos.

Marcus Maye expected to receive franchise tag

Multiple people in NFL circles expect the Jets to place the franchise tag on safety Marcus Maye.

Fantasy Impact

While wide receivers have dominated franchise tag rumors so far, we now have a defensive player in the mix. Maye, who turns 28 in two weeks, amassed two sacks, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles over 16 starts in 2020. He also made a career-high 88 tackles while defending 11 passes. Clearly, New York and defensive-minded head coach Robert Saleh are excited about the prospect of keeping Maye in tow.

Marcus Maye: Jets' HC wanted to trade him before last season?

Jets' HC Adam Gase reportedly wanted to trade S Marcus Maye before the start of last season, per Manish Mehta of NY Daily News.

Fantasy Impact

"Gase wanted to trade Maye after he was hired last year before being convinced to keep the player," Mehta added. The Jets drafted Cal safety Ashytn Davis in NFL 2020 Draft, which prompted Maye's future. It was reported that Maye would unlikely sign a second contract with the Jets. He racked up 65 tackles and one interception across 16 games in 2019. The 27-year-old will compete with Davis to start along side star safety Jamal Adams. Maye is currently 110th among all defensive backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
