Brian won’t be released because he’s in a contract year. Speaking of that contract year, he’s having a Pro-Bowl level season and is a must keep for the Jets heading into the 2016-17 offseason.
He should command top dollar on the open market if he makes it that far. The Jets can’t afford to lose him. Pair him with James Carpenter, who has been fantastic, and the Jets could have a great jumping point for their offensive line rebuild.
