The New York Jets have seen player after player walk out the door, but the team on Friday added a pair of free agents on offense.
Colon was released by the Steelers this week after starting 62 games for Pittsburgh since 2006. He's been sidelined by injuries in recent years, playing just 13 games since the start of 2011 and ending the past three campaigns on injured reserve. When healthy, Colon is a versatile lineman who brings experience at the tackle and guard positions. It's not a surprise he found a new home so quickly.
Set to turn 30 next month, Colon makes sense as a depth move for the Jets. It's possible the team sees him as a replacement for Brandon Moore at right tackle -- he played that role for years with the Steelers -- but considering Colon's inability to stay on the field, the Jets better have a backup plan.
