Rex Ryan’s thoughts on the retirement of Brandon Moore Dan Leberfeld

Cortland – Former Jets guard Brandon Moore retired from the NFL on Wednesday.

He spent his entire NFL career, from 2002-2012, with the Jets. He is likely bound for the team’s Ring-of-Honor.

Jets coach Rex Ryan had some thoughts on Moore’s retirement today.

“What a tremendous player obviously,” Ryan said. “I remember (going against) Brandon. I knew (he was) a big, strong (player). But, what a tremendous player, a great person. He was just a great teammate. A guy that was important to me, being a first-time NFL head coach, I leaned on him some. He was absolutely tremendous. I guess you can’t play this game forever. But, I certainly appreciate his time that he had with us for sure.”
