The New York Jets have signed former University of Louisville defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins, according to a report from NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. It is a two-year deal worth up to $17 million.

He is joining forces with another former Cardinal, as offensive tackle Mekhi Becton was selected by the Jets with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Prior to heading to the Big Apple, the 6-foot-2, 305-pound defensive tackle spent the past five seasons with the New Orleans Saints, who drafted him with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
