New York Jets left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson, a former Pro Bowl player known for his remarkable durability, shocked the world earlier today with his retirement announcement.
DB was only 32 years old. Not only did he play every game in 10 seasons -- 167 consecutive starts, including playoffs -- but he also never missed a practice and never appeared on an injury report.
This is a huge loss for the Jets.
Over the past 10 years, there have been a lot of ups and downs on the Jets roster, but Brick was one of the most steady players the team has seen during that tenure.
He never missed a game or practice. He was a hardworker who stayed out of the headlines with negative press. Finding steady and reliable offensive lineman is hard in the NFL and he was one of them.
With a team that is built to win now, the loss of D'Brickashaw is major. His retirement opens up 9 million in cap space, but the team has to find his replacement deep in free agency.
