Brian Winters was one of the few bright spots for the Jets this year. Before he got hurt very late in the season he really emerged as a young player that could be a starter on the offensive line for a long time. It looks like the Jets felt the same way because they just announced that Winters has been signed to a 4-year contract extension. Terms of the deal are not known at this time.
