Yesterday, former Jets right tackle Damien Woody said on ESPN Radio that “it’s either Gang Green or nobody.” The veteran free agent may have the chance to return to the Jets like he hoped.
The Jets have contacted Woody’s agent about a possible return, in the hours since free agency opened this morning, a person with knowledge of the communication between the sides confirmed. That person requested anonymity because nothing is yet official. - per Jenny Vrentas
The Jets Beat writers have been reporting on twitter that there is a rumor that the Jets would resign the OL:
TheJetsStream #Jets braintrust informed Damien Woody this morning they definitely would like him back this season, per sources. #nyj 7/26/11 12:58 PM
Have confirmed earlier reports that the #Jets have reached out to Damien Woody. 7/26/11 12:53 PM
Confirmed reports that Jets have reached out to Damien Woody’s camp about bringing him back. #nyj 7/26/11 12:49 PM
I personally like the move as Woody was most definitely the solid choice. I know at some point we will have to give Vlad Ducasse his shot, but I feel like if the Jets can keep Damien Woody, he could be the starter, groom Vlad for one more year and then make the switch if Vlad deserves it.
