Willie Colon Heading for Surgery

New, comments
Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Jets guard Willie Colon will need surgery.

Colon had a good year for the Jets, but this will probably once again make him a cheap option for teams on the free agent market. The big question for Colon was whether he could stay healthy. This marks the fourth consecutive season that ends for Colon with a serious injury.

This is why the Jets should at the very least explore other options. Colon has a tough time staying healthy, and his position is brutally physical. Perhaps with the injury they can get him back for 2014as a cheap backup, though.
