Curtis Martin: Honorary Captain

The Jets will have Curtis Martin as an honorary captain Sunday.

Former New York Jets great Curtis Martin will serve as the team’s honorary captain for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the Jets and the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Martin is the Jets' all-time leading rusher and the No. 4 rusher in NFL history with 14,101 rushing yards on 3,518 carries in 11 seasons (1995-2005). He scored 100 career touchdowns, including 90 rushing scores.

I love it. He hasn't played in four years, but he will always be a part of this team. I'm sure his unsurpassed class, dedication, toughness, and excellence on the field will be an inspiration Sunday.
