In a recent interview with 1050 ESPN New York, former New York Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody expressed his desire to return to Gang Green.
“It’s either Gang Green or nobody. That’s the amount of respect I have for the jets, from (owner) Woody Johnson on down to Rex (Ryan), everybody in the locker room. It’s just a great situation for any player to be in, and I feel privileged to be part of the organization for three years. That’s where I stand right now.”
As of now the New York Jets are hoping that second year player Vlad Ducasse can fill Woody’s shoes, but in all honesty re-signing Damien to a cap friendly deal makes the most sense. Ducasse struggled in his rookie year and the inability to work with the Jets coaches, mainly Bill Callahan, during the lockout had to hinder his development this offseason. Woody would provide the Jets with continuity on their offensive line, while providing a mentor and leader for the younger players.
What do you think Jets fans, should Gang Green re-sign Woody? Talk about it in the JetNation forums.
