Star-crossed Jets running back Jalin Moore has retired from the NFL.
Moore, a 5’ 11”, 210 pound running back out of Appalachian State, was originally signed by the Jets in 2019 as an undrafted free agent. He was a standout at Appalachian State, amassing 3570 yards on 582 carries in four years and earning Offensive Player Of The Year honors for the Sun Belt Conference in 2016. His senior year was cut short by a devastating injury in which he both dislocated and fractured his ankle. Moore never fully recovered, spending the 2019 season on the non-football injury list and being placed on the same list again this past May. With his injury never fully healing, Moore has decided to give up his dream of playing in the NFL.

I hope I motivated as many kids as I could. I hope I gave all my younger cousins hope that they can make it out. I hope I made all my family and fans proud. I can’t lie and say this shit don’t hurt but I’m built for it all. I want to thank all the people in my life who helped get this far and all my true supporters who have been with me from the start ✌ L O V E
