Jets Introduce Former DE Dennis Byrd With Defense
Former Jets defensive end Dennis Byrd was introduced as the final member of New York’s defense, 20 years after his career ended because of an injury that left him briefly paralyzed.
The team is retiring Byrd’s No. 90 jersey at halftime of the game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Byrd came out of the tunnel as his name was announced a few minutes before the game and was greeted by the entire team in the end zone — and received a standing ovation from the MetLife Stadium crowd.
Byrd stood on the sideline during the national anthem and walked arm-in-arm with center Nick Mangold to midfield as the honorary captain for the coin toss.
Byrd was injured Nov. 29, 1992, when he broke his neck after slamming headfirst into the chest of teammate Scott Mersereau against Kansas City.
