Damien Woody Retiring After New York Jets Release, According To Report

Two-time Super Bowl champion offensive lineman Damien Woody is retiring from the NFL, according to the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta. The big man played his last three seasons for the New York Jets after stints with the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions. He won those two Super Bowls with the latter. No, he did not.

Woody was cut by the Jets early in the offseason, and may have been waiting to see whether the Jets extended a long-term offer to Wayne Hunter, who replaced him during an injury last year. They reportedly have. With his starting job essentially passed along, Woody probably picked the right time to retire, if he's indeed done so. He's active on Twitter, and hasn't yet confirmed or denied the news.

The one-time Pro Bowler has played 173 games, starting 166, in his 12-year career. 

For more Jets, head to Gang Green Nation and SB Nation New York.
