FLORHAM PARK N.J. — There are three standouts in the Florham Park, N.J. New York JetsD'Brickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold were the last playoff teams in 2010, so Darrelle Revis will be inducted into this team's Ring of Honor during separate halftime ceremonies, the team announced on Thursday.

Revis was the most decorated player of the trio. Revis, a three-time All Pro cornerback in New York (2009-11), is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2023. He was widely considered to be one of the best defensive players in franchise history.

According to the Jets official website, Mangold stated, “This is incredible and amazing because it's with two my guys.” “Revis, it was amazing just being part of the team with you. Your presence was extraordinary. This honor was shared with you. Brick, this is what we did back in Mobile, Alabama. [at the Senior Bowl]Now we can close it up together. This is something very special for me.

Mangold, Ferguson, and Revis will be 17th, 18th, and 19th players in this ring of honour, which was launched in 2010.
