Default Former Jets, Panthers DT Kris Jenkins retires

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP)—Kris Jenkins(notes) was prepared to attempt yet another comeback. And, he dared anyone to doubt that he’d be able to pull it off.

But after a career filled with dominant moments and frustrating injuries, the big and charismatic defensive tackle decided his body had been through enough.

Jenkins announced his retirement on his Facebook page Wednesday after his last two seasons with the New York Jets were cut short by serious knee injuries.

“Wanted to let you all know that I have loved the support and respect that you all have given me throughout my career,” Jenkins wrote. “But it is time for the torch to be passed to the younger players. I am going to hang up the cleats!”

Jenkins, who’ll be 32 on Aug. 3, was released by the Jets in a cost-cutting move in February, but said at the time he still wanted to play. He continued his rehabilitation from his latest knee injury throughout the NFL lockout, and said he would be interested in playing for a team that played its home games on natural grass to help protect his knees. In the end, the four-time Pro Bowl selection chose to focus on life after football.

I'll never forget him dominating our o-line, especially Myers, just 2 years ago.

Jets used a 3rd rd. pick on Kenrick Ellis. He does face a possible felony, the trial has been postponed until November to allow time for his new attorney.

I think the Texans will draft one someday when the right one comes along.
