The New York Jets have re-signed unrestricted free agent right guard Brandon Moore. The announcement was made by Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
Moore (6'3", 295) signed as an undrafted free agent defensive lineman in 2002 and was converted to the offensive line during training camp. He made his regular-season debut for the Jets in late 2003 at left guard. The Gary, Ind., native has started 73 consecutive regular-season games at RG since missing three games in the middle of the 2004 season due to injury.
In 2008, Moore contributed to an offensive line that helped running back Thomas Jones lead the AFC with 1,312 rushing yards and establish Jets team records with 15 total touchdowns and 13 rushing TDs. Additionally, the Jets offense ranked fifth in the NFL with an average of 4.7 yards per rushing attempt.
With Moore's signing, the Jets now return all five starters from last season's offensive line. Moore was released by the Jets on Feb. 26 prior to the start of the free agency period.
