New York Jets: Willie Colon Addition is Low Risk, High Reward
He showed the toughness that comes with being both a Steeler and as a native of the Bronx. His problem is injury. Five games were missed by Colon last year with knee issues. Recent years also saw the former Steeler deal with a torn triceps and Achilles.
At 29 Colon is still young. While he may not be a household name, this is a quality talent. Last year’s number one right guard Brandon Moore may or may not be back. Moore is important to retain, but his exit would be less dramatic given this new signing which at the very least provides great depth. Moore still played well last year despite being 30 years of age.
Left guard Matt Slauson is likely gone as well so there needs to be stability on the offensive line. This unit had weaknesses holding up as a whole all season. Alongside left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson and center Nick Mangold, Colon could help provide better play from the unit in 2013. Whoever starts at quarterback will need protection especially from the right side. Colon also brings veteran leadership that young teammates could look to. It was important for head coach Rex Ryan and company to add good character in a fractured locker room. This is a good start.
