Jets Rumors: New York Expected To Let Willie Colon Test Free Agency

The New York Jets are looking to upgrade at offensive guard this offseason, and that likely means the end of free agent Willie Colon's time with the team.

Here's Kristan Dyer of Metro Sports with the report:

Willie Colon's tenure with the New York Jets looks as though it will end after two years, with sources telling Metro New York that the starting right guard won't be coming back. ... As for possible replacements, the Jets will actively pursue some of the bigger names in free agency at guard, including Clint Boling of the Cincinnati Bengals and James Carpenter of the Seattle Seahawks.

Colon, 32, started 16 games for the New York Jets in 2014, participating in 99 percent of the team's offensive snaps. However, he was subpar regardless of his durability according to Pro Football Focus, ranking 66th out of 78 qualifying guards.

Expect Colon to land elsewhere this offseason as a cost-effective one-year stopgap option for a team looking for guard help.
