    Wow, didn't see that coming. Is Colon a OT or OG?

    Replaces Moore?

    @RichCimini: #Jets sign former Steelers OL Willie Colon, per multiple reports. One year deal, $1.2 million. Likely starter at guard.

    @BrianCoz: Jets could lose Brandon Moore and Matt Slauson as free agents, so guard help was needed. Colon should be a starter. #nyj


    30 yrs old. Recent injury issues. Achilles and triceps

    Wow, another "if" guy. Great if Colon works out. If not, join the massive scrap heap outside Jet Central.

    Surprised it happened that fast and at the price. I thought about him as soon as Pitt released him.

    YESSSS!!!!! I wanted this move. When I was a senior at Hofstra Willie was a freshmen. I haven't talked to him in a while but a great guy.

    Pretty cool that the Jets were able to land Billy Beane at GM.

    He'll be starting at RG this year. Can also play tackle as well which is a good thing.

    The thing is Borgo at least these "if" guys have some potential and are coming cheap. Cheap low cost fill ins while you build. You need to cover your bases by filling some holes before the draft. Both Landry and Bell were big if guys last year.

    In the last 3 years, games missed due to injury:

    2010: 16
    2011: 15
    2012: 5

    Since I didn't watch the Steelers much, I did a quick google to find any grading on him:

    "Pro Football Focus graded Colon as a top-15 run-blocking guard and top-25 pass-blocking guard in 2012, but charted him with the most penalties in the league at the position. Turning 30 in April, Colon figures to replace Brandon Moore as the Jets' starting right guard. New York now has four starting offensive linemen in place: LT Brick Ferguson, C Nick Mangold, RG Colon, and RT Austin Howard."
