The Jets released the 33 year old Saturday following a frustrating season in which Mangold - once an ironman for the franchise - missed eight games due to an ankle injury. "My family and I will always be grateful to [Jets owner Woody] Johnson and the entire organization for making me a Jet". It meant a lot to see all the #74 jerseys in the crowd every Sunday. "Thank you all for a fantastic 11 years!" The Jets have also cleared $10 million with left tackle Ryan Clady and another $4.5 million with right tackle Breno Giacomini off the roster.
As for Mangold, Rapoport noted the seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro is not expected to retire.
According to Spotrac, the Jets will save another $9.075 million with the release of Mangold.

"It has been a privilege to have known Nick these many years and, for all of us, I say Nick will always be a Jet". Here are a few options in the NFL Draft, free agency and in-house.
