Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson has retired from the NFL after 10 seasons.
As Jets beat writer Rich Cimini put it, it's "a stunner." The Jets wanted Ferguson to take a pay cut, and instead of accepting one, "Brick" chose to go out on his own terms. Ferguson is only 32, completely healthy, and still one of the better blindside protectors in the league. Gang Green is now without a left tackle and quarterback, though the $9 million-plus in cap room Ferguson's retirement creates should allow the Jets to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Ferguson isn't a Hall of Famer, but he deserves a place in the Jets' Ring of Honor. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2006 draft, Ferguson made three Pro Bowls and missed just one offensive snap in his entire career (10,707/10,708). Apr 8 - 9:20 AM
