On the fourtieth anniversity of the esistence of the NY Jets, the team announced the official All-Time Four Decade team which was voted by the fans.

All of the above players selected will be honored at a private dinner this Friday in New York City and then be introduced at a ceremony during halftime of this week’s game against the Patriots on Saturday night.

The Jets also announced today they have signed LB Mark Brown and defensive tackle Alan Harper to the active roster from the practice squad and have signed punter Mark Mariscal and wide receiver Rob Turner to the practice squad. The Club also waived safety David Young from injured reserve.

Brown signed with the Jets as a rookie FA from Auburn after the draft and the 6-0, 238-pound linebacker tallied eight tackles (three solo) and had one interception in two games this preseason. He was waived at the end of training camp and signed to the practice squad on September 1 before being released on October 16 and then re-signed to the practice roster on November 11.

Harper, was the Jets’ fourth round pick in the 2002 Draft from Fresno State and has yet to be activated for a game before going to the practice squad this season. The team also announced earlier this week that Harper will be sent to NFL Europe this spring to get some extra work.

Mariscal, a 6-2, 200-pound punter from Colorado, first entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the New Orleans Saints this spring. He averaged 47.1 yards on 10 punts for the Saints this preseason before being waived on August 25. Mariscal also worked some as a placekicker in college for the Buffaloes where he was the 2002 Ray Guy Award winner, awarded to the nation’s top punter.

Turner is a 6-3, 200-pound rookie WR from Central Michigan. He in played in 44 collegiate games in four seasons for the Chippewas, catching 112 passes for 1,363 yards and five touchdowns.

Young, a 6-1, 209-pound safety, was signed from the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad on October 15, 2003. The Columbia, South Carolina played in five games for the Jets and recorded seven special teams tackles and was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury on December 5.

The Jets have indicated they will likely bring back the 40 year old VInny Testaverde back next season as a backup QB. Testaverde has no problem being Chad Pennington’s backup but told the media if he is the third stringer behind Brooks Bollinger, he would probably retire.
