Brandon Moore is a free agent, but the ex-Jets guard disputes a report that he intends to retire.

UPDATE: Brandon Moore has texted ESPN New York's Rich Cimini to dispute the original report, saying that he is waiting for the right opportunity

After testing the free agency waters and finding them unsuitable, former Jets offensive guard Brandon Moore is expected to retire after 10 seasons in the NFL, according to ESPN contributor Adam Caplan.

Moore originally signed with the Jets in 2002 as an undrafted free agent and served as an anchor on the team's offensive line for the next decade, starting 142 games, including a streak of 137 straight.

Cap issues and the selection of guard Brian Winters in the 2013 draft prompted the Jets to part ways with Moore this offseason. Moore was pursued by and took visits to the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins, but did not reach an agreement with either. Reports suggested the 33-year-old was asking for starting player money and teams were unwilling to go that high.

Despite his many accomplishments on the field over his 10 seasons, including a Pro Bowl selection in 2011, Moore is perhaps best known for his role in the 2012 Mark Sanchez "Buttfumble" incident. That's him, No. 65, unintentionally demolishing his quarterback and creating a yet-unbroken streak on SportsCenter's Worst of the Worst.
