Free agent OG Willie Colon said his NFL future remains "up in the air."
"I’m getting in shape, trying to figure it out," said Colon. "If my knee doesn’t respond, I’m just going to hang it up." A knee injury limited Colon to just six games last season. The 33-year-old said he'd consider playing elsewhere after spending his last three seasons in New York. The Jets are moving forward with Brian Winters and deep sleeper Brent Qvale at right guard.

Free agent OG Willie Colon doesn't intend to retire at this time.

Colon admitted 11 days ago that he was considering hanging up his cleats, saying he's "on the fence." Colon missed 10 games last season with a knee injury and turns 33 in 10 days. It's possible his retirement decision will be made for him when the phone doesn't ring. Colon's played 10 seasons.

Free agent G Willie Colon said he is considering retirement.

"I'm on the fence," he said. "I still haven't decided if I'm gonna go or not go ... I don't want to rush it." Colon only managed six games last year before landing on injured reserve with a knee injury, but he started 16 games the two seasons before. He will turn 33 in April.

Jets placed RG Willie Colon on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Brian Winters takes over as the Jets' starting right guard. Colon has long battled knee problems, and this might be the end of his career at age 32. Colon had proven to be a liability up front both in the pass and run games.

Jets RG Willie Colon (knee) is expected to miss his second straight game Thursday.

Brian Winters will continue to fill in. The Jets' running game has been struggling in recent weeks, but there's little difference between Colon and Winters.
Tue, Nov 10, 2015 03:39:00 PM

Jets RG Willie Colon has been diagnosed with a sprained knee, and is week to week.

It's a sprained MCL. He'll miss Sunday's London contest against the Dolphins, but might be ready to return after the Jets' Week 5 bye. Brian Winters is filling in during Colon's absence.

Jets RG Willie Colon exited Week 3 against the Eagles with a knee injury.

Colon injured the knee in the third quarter and did not return. He was spotted being taken out of the stadium on a golf cart. The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported the injury is not believed to be season-ending, but Colon appears to be looking at a multiple-week injury at the very least.

Willie Colon has won the Jets' right guard job.

Colon has been far from impressive the past two seasons, but soundly beat out Brian Winters in camp. The Jets are hoping he'll be more effective another year removed from his torn biceps.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 01:36:00 PM

Willie Colon has "owned" the Jets' right-guard job at training camp.

This should be more of an indictment toward former third-round pick Brian Winters, who has been "unable to budge" Colon out of the starting lineup. Colon is 32 and coming off a horrific season, but has apparently looked better a year removed from a torn bicep. Winters is on the bubble.

ESPN New York considers Willie Colon the favorite for the Jets' right-guard duties.

In other words, reporter Rich Cimini ultimately expects Colon to keep his job. Cimini does qualify his prediction by calling Colon the favorite "ever so slightly." The Jets' starter each of the past two seasons, Colon is battling Oday Aboushi, Dakota Dozier and fifth-rounder Jarvis Harrison. Colon was a sub-replacement level player last season.
Thu, May 21, 2015 02:46:00 PM

Jets re-signed OG Willie Colon.

Colon, 32 next month, has started all 16 games each of the past two seasons for the Jets, a huge accomplishment for the injury-ravaged veteran. With the addition of LG James Carpenter, Colon will compete with Brian Winters.
Thu, Mar 12, 2015 12:13:00 PM

Sources tell Metro New York that the Jets will not attempt to re-sign free agent OG Willie Colon.

It's not a surprise after Colon's performance fell off a cliff in 2014. He was a major part of the problem on a sub-par Jets offensive line. Turning 32 next month, Colon should not be pursued by other teams as an expected starter.
Sun, Mar 1, 2015 05:24:00 PM

Jets activated RG Willie Colon (knee, biceps) from the camp/PUP list.

He only sat on PUP for four days. Colon is the Jets' starting right guard, with sophomore Brian Winters as the favorite to man left guard. The tackles are D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Breno Giacomini with Nick Mangold at center.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 01:33:00 PM

Jets placed RG Willie Colon (knee, biceps) on the active/PUP list.

OLB Antwan Barnes (knee) joins him, as he's recovering from a torn ACL. Colon tore his biceps in the season finale before undergoing a knee scope during the spring. He's not expected to miss much time during camp, but the injuries have been racking up for Colon during his career. He'll be ready by Week 1.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 01:24:00 PM

Jets RG Willie Colon (knee, biceps) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Colon will be shut down 4-6 weeks recovering from his knee scope, but is hoping to be available for the start of camp. With four surgeries over the last four years, his durability is a concern. The Jets lack depth at guard behind Colon, with Brian Winters, William Campbell, and Dakota Dozier all getting extended looks during OTAs. Barring a setback, Colon will be ready for Week 1.
