It's a one year deal, reported on Twitter.

#Jets sign former Steelers OL Willie Colon, per multiple reports. One year deal, $1.2 million. Likely starter at guard.

Ok I guess,    I'm just laughing a bit thinking about the Jets having the "all injured squad."    It seems all the guys they seem interested in signing have missed entire seasons, multiple seasons.

That is one hell of an "if" given his recent history.

   That's the funny part.    It seems the Jets signings this year are a lot of "if the guy doesn't get injured again."

If we get over 10 games out of him then he's a steal at that money and a perfect stop-gap for a 2013 draftee to work in behind.

Excellent move.

 

Our biggest problem going all the way back to pre-season last year was QB and offensive line depth. This is a depth, stop-gap signing. Nothing to complain about.

 

It's not like the Jets roster is one player away, like the 49ers, Falcons and Seahawks kind of were coming into the off-season. We need about 20 new bodies, so they can't all be high profile, but they should all be service-able and have some upside.

 

Inexpensive veteran leadership is something we sorely need too.

This is the type of moves we have to make pick up lower free agent types that we get an upside with like Landry this past year

Like Landry?  Signing him was pretty funny.

Oh, I get it.  I just wouldn't bet on him staying healthy at this stage of his career -- though I would love it if he does.  Good that he has been moved inside, since he was never good in pass protection.

I really like this move. He played guard for the first time last year and actually looked good until injury. Hofstra represent. 

 

idzik is doing well bargain shopping.

From Rotoworld

 

Jets signed OG Willie Colon to a one-year, $1.2 million contract.Pro Football Focus graded Colon as a top-15 run-blocking guard and top-25 pass-blocking guard in 2012, but charted him with the most penalties in the league at the position. Turning 30 in April, Colon figures to replace Brandon Moore as the Jets' starting right guard. New York now has four starting offensive linemen in place: LT Brick Ferguson, C Nick Mangold, RG Colon, and RT Austin Howard. Mar 15 - 3:52 PM

How many of the current Jets will be on the 2014 roster at this point? Mangold, Brick, Coples, Cro, Goodson, and Hill, essentially.

Considering Vlad played 40% of the snaps at LG last year they probably have their starting 5. Barring some Chance Warmack type of pick.

What about Rex?

 

Is he going to get a free pass and a do over through the rebuild?

 

I mean right now he is lame duck, and the team is being gutted.

Gotta like what their doing here.  Bringing  in guys that can start ,so they won’t have to reach for need in the draft, but won’t prohibit them from taking a player if a quality player falls.

Agree

 

But it won't prevent them from drafting another guard in the 2nd if some one very good falls.

 

I like the signing

Gives them some flexibility in the draft.  Doesnt force you to go guard early.  Kind of surprised they didnt resign one of Moore or Slauson.
