Jets re-sign G Colon

The SportsXchange

The New York Jets re-signed veteran guard Willie Colon to a one-year contract on Wednesday.

According to multiple reports, the deal is worth $2 million.

The 30-year-old Colon, who signed with the Jets as an unrestricted free agent last March, started 16 games at right guard in 2013.

"Ultimately, this is where I wanted to be," Colon said on the team's website. "I'm homegrown and finishing here was important to me. To be in this situation and to sign back on is a blessing."

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Colon helped the Jets finish second in the AFC in rushing with 2,158 yards during the regular season. But in the final game of the year against the Miami Dolphins, Colon ruptured his right biceps. He expected to recover in time for the start of training camp this summer.

"I feel great," Colon said. "I feel real good. Rehab's going really well and all arrows are pointing p, so it's a matter of just getting back."

Colon will be paired on the right side of the Jets' offensive line this season with tackle Breno Giacomini, who was signed as a free agent earlier this month after spending the past three years with the Seattle Seahawks.

In Colon's eight-year NFL career, he has started 78 games since he was picked in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
