Nick Mangold to sign one-day retirement deal with Jets

April 17th, 2018

Center Nick Mangold said in February that he wasn’t closing the door on continuing his playing career, but a couple of months have led to a change of heart. Mangold announced on Tuesday that he will be signing a one-day deal with the Jets next week so that he can retire as a member of the organization. Mangold played 11 years for the Jets after being drafted in the first round of the 2006 draft and was released before last season with injuries taking their toll on his ability to remain on the field.
