With the final game yet to be played at Giants Stadium looming, the Jets organization has announced that they will be honoring players from the 1984-2009 teams at halftime of Sunday's game. Each individual season (sans 2006)  will be represented by at least one Jets player.

The halftime ceremony will be held in commemeration of the last 26 years of Jets football that has been played in "Big Brother's" house.

Both Leon Washington and Kris Jenkins will be in attendance, representing their respective teams. This will, no doubt, be a very emotional and powerful ceremony.

"This is a great moment for the Jets organization," said Marty Lyons, long-time Jets defensive tackle and now radio color commentator for the team, who is scheduled to address the crowd at halftime Sunday. "We made a lot of great memories at this place, but we're really excited about the future of this team, the new stadium and all the great things that will happen there, too."
