Jets keep Willie Colon around with new contract

Willie Colon, Tommy Kelly AP

It didn’t take long for veteran guard Willie Colon to find a home with the Jets, as he quickly announced he hated the Patriots.

Now, they’ve guaranteed he’ll get to hate them for another year, as the team announced he had been re-signed.

Colon suffered a torn biceps in Week 17, but the sense is that he’ll be ready to go by training camp.

Their offensive line is in flux after losing right tackle Austin Howard, but he at least gives them a veteran guard option, as they look for more help.

    It’s inarguable — the Jets are a Colon-Friendly team.

    Now they need to go get Richie Incoginto, younger and now has something to prove. I bet he’ll be a model citizen from here on out.

    Now cut out with the silly penalties….

    Good, I was wondering who was gonna be our drive-killing penalties guy this season. He’s a good player, but man alive does he love committing penalties at the worst possible times.

    In flux? They replaced Howard with the guy that just won the Super Bowl starting at RT and the other 4 starters are returning.

    If that’s in flux what do you call the Miami line?

    Now add Incognito. He will be on best behavior or he knows he is done.

    The offensive line is no longer in flux, they signed Breno Giacomini to replace Austin Howard. The rest of the line is the same as last year. Darin Gantt is the worst.

    Solid signing. Colon was a big plus in the run game last year.

    LOL.

    Jets sign Incognito betting he’ll be a model citizen.

    That’s after Miami signed him betting he’d be a model citizen. That was just after Buffalo nabbed him betting he learned his lesson in St. Louis. And who can forget St. Louis thinking he would settle down after his college debacle at Nebraska.

    LOL. Perfect call for the Jets.

    Incognito would be a great fit and make him a team captain.

    HUGE signing, solidifies the O line. Jets O line is NOT in Flux Gannt…ugh.

    Now Idzik needs to re-sign Cro at less $$ than last year.

    Oh he hates the patriots..I’m crushed..let me go cry in the corner like his QB does. Man up Colon,,,NE has owned you year in and year out

  13. patriottony says: Mar 19, 2014 2:26 PM

    Correct me if I’m wrong..weren’t you involved the BUTT FUMBLE,,,,Highlight of the decade? LMAO

    look for more help? The Jets line is basically set….brick, winters, mangold, colon, giacomini….that’s pretty solid….nobody’s gonna want to mess with colon and giacomini those are some big boys…

  15. combatvet456 says: Mar 19, 2014 3:14 PM

    I think we should take a look at Davin Joseph for insurance in case Winters doesnt get it. Then bring in Ryan Clark mto play safety.

  16. dlk47823 says: Mar 19, 2014 3:35 PM

    Word is Cro’s hip is shot…..look for a cb with the first pick

  17. dlk47823 says: Mar 19, 2014 3:42 PM

    I meant 2011, and it was Brandon Moore, who is now retired.
