Duane Brown Reveals Big Update on Jets Future
After 16 seasons in the NFL, offensive lineman Duane Brown has been through a lot. His body has taken a constant beating from all those battles in the trenches, resulting in offseason shoulder surgery for the 37-year-old.
Brown was deciding between retiring or playing another season in 2023, and on Sunday his agent revealed his decision.

Brown's agent Kennard McGuire told ESPN on Sunday that Brown will return to the New York Jets for another season.
The five-time Pro Bowler originally signed a two-year, $22 million deal with the Jets prior to the 2022 season. He suffered his shoulder injury in September and spent time on the injured reserve, but returned in October and ultimately suited up for 12 games.
After getting surgery to repair his torn left rotator cuff, Brown apparently feels that his body can still hold up for another season. The legendary left tackle has never won a Super Bowl, so he still has something to play for.
Brown's return is an exciting development for New York, which will benefit from his sturdy presence on the O-line and veteran leadership in the locker room. Head coach Robert Saleh loves him and he's reportedly a great presence off the field, where he can continue to contribute even if ends up missing additional time with injuries in 2023.
