Nick Mangold will always be a Jet, after 11 years of excellent service, the decision was made to cut Nick. I think we can all appreciate that this was the correct decision for the team with all things considered, but it's still a sad day for the Jets and their fanbase.

With how important Mangold has been to the Jets, both the head coach Todd Bowles and owner Woody Johnson commented on his release. From the official Jets website:

Woody Johnson:

"For the past 11 years, Nick Mangold has been a cornerstone of our team both on and off the field," said Jets owner Woody Johnson. "As our Pro Bowl center, Nick consistently demonstrated superior skill and unmatched toughness. Equally important, off the field, Nick exhibited respect, sensitivity and compassion for the causes he supported. It has been a privilege to have known Nick these many years and, for all of us, I say Nick will always be a Jet.”

Todd Bowles

“A great person, a great player. You could always count on Nick’s smarts, consistency and poise," said head coach Todd Bowles. "Nick’s knowledge of the game and ability to quickly process information made him an invaluable resource to his teammates. He will always mean a lot to everyone in this organization.”
