Brandon Moore Retires; Reaction Tweets

Brandon Moore Retires; Reaction Tweets

All the talk is about Former Jets’ lineman Brandon Moore about his retirement, again.  Story broke last month that unsigned free agent Moore was going to retire but then late last night word was that we was going to sign a one year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.

Then Brandon changed his mind just as everyone was reporting that he signed.  The reason:  He didn’t want to leave his family for Texas.   I have mad respect.

If you followed Moore, you know that he was the consummate proprofessional and I wish the Jets had 10 Brandon Moores on the team.

Here has been the reaction on twitter:

toddarcher Thinking of a Parcells quote re Brandon Moore: if you’re thinking about retirement, you’ve retired. Better Cowboys found out now than later 8/7/13 9:24 AM
