Former Jets center Nick Mangold made an announcement last week that he would retire. Today he signed a one day contract with the Jets so that he could officially retire as a member of the team.

Here are some of the highlights of the festivities.

Mangold only wore a Jets uniform. The team selected him in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft with its second first round pick. The initial first rounder was used on D’Brickashaw Ferguson, another cornerstone of the offensive line for a decade. Nick spent his full eleven year career with the Jets before sitting out the 2017 season.

An Ohio State product, Mangold made seven Pro Bowls in his time with the Jets and was twice selected as a First Team All Pro.

This seems like a fitting sendoff for one of the greatest players in franchise history. Mangold is a sure bet to enter the team’s Ring of Honor in the future.
