When free agency kicks off on March 12, all signs point to New York Jets guard Brandon Moore searching for a new home for the first time in his career. Moore has spent his entire ten-year NFL career with the Jets, but the two sides have had very little contact heading into the free agency period and he will now be searching for a new team on the open market.
Moore has started 137 consecutive games for the Jets. His experience could make him a hot commodity on the market for a team looking to add a veteran presence to their interior line.
The 2011 Pro Bowler is surprised by the lack of contact he has had with the team, but he is also looking forward to free agency.
“You know you’ll be a free agent and you’ll go to the right situation so you’re definitely a little anxious, a little nervous but definitely a lot of excitement looking forward to it,” Moore said.
“Just being in a position where, you know, I’ve played a little while now and I’ve been in some big games and played in a lot of big games, at this stage of my career I’m looking to really be with a team that’s on the cusp of a championship. A team that’s really a piece there, a piece there from really vying for a championship.”
At this point in his career, free agency is a blessing for Moore.
He will be able to sign with a contending team and have a shot at reaching a Super Bowl before his playing career comes to an end. We all know that won’t be happening with the Jets, who are in full blown rebuilding mode.
Perhaps the most exciting part of free agency for Moore is that he can find a team where he will be able to avoid this type of situation:
