FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Former New York Jets guard Brandon Moore, who announced his retirement in August after spurning a free-agent offer from the Dallas Cowboys, will make it official Friday. He will be at the Jets' facility for a retirement news conference.

On Sunday, Moore will lead the Jets' player walk from the team bus, through the parking lot and into MetLife Stadium, where the Jets face the New Orleans Saints.

Moore was one of the most durable linemen in Jets history. He spent 10 seasons with the Jets, working his way up from a practice-squad defensive lineman. He ended up starting the final 137 games of his career. The Jets didn't offer him a contract last offseason. He became a free agent and gave serious consideration to playing for the Cowboys. Initially, he accepted their offer, but decided he didn't want to leave his family in New Jersey.
