New York Jets: Dennis Byrd
The Jets will kick off the regular season with Curtis Martin Day on Sept. 9, when they will retire his No. 28 jersey. Defensive end Dennis Byrd's No. 90 jersey will be retired Oct. 28.
Martin, a running back from 1995 to 2005, will be inducted the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Martin was drafted by the Patriots, became a Jet in 1997 and retired in New York.
Byrd was drafted by the Jets in 1989. He suffered a career-ending spinal-cord injury in 1992; he underwent extensive physical therapy and regained the ability to walk. The Jets have brought him in to speak to current players on several occasions.
