As the New York Jets look to better days ahead, they will salute three of the best players from their recent past. Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, and D’Brickashaw Ferguson will be inducted into the Jets Ring of Honor at MetLife Stadium in 2022 on three separate dates this fall.

Perhaps not so coincidentally, those three represent the Jets' most recent success stories. Mangold and Ferguson were each selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft, and Revis was a first-round pick in 2007. They were at the heart of Jets teams that reached the AFC Championship Game in 2009 and 2010.

The Jets have not made the playoffs since. They have had one winning season in the past 11. They won four games last season, two in 2020.

But there is newfound optimism with the Jets.

Robert Saleh is in his second season as coach. Zach Wilson is in his second year as the franchise quarterback. They had a solid draft in 2021, and most experts believe they crushed it in the 2022 NFL Draft.

There is the hope that the new core can lift the franchise just as Ferguson, Mangold, and Revis did more than a decade ago.

Ferguson, an offensive tackle, was selected with the fourth overall pick in 2006. He played 10 seasons with the Jets and never missed a game, starting all 160 in the regular season as well as seven in the playoffs. He played in the Pro Bowl each season from 2009-11 and was All-Pro in 2009 and 2010. Ferguson will be inducted into the Ring of Honor during the Oct. 30 game against the New England Patriots.

Mangold, a center, was the 29th pick in the 2006 NFL Draft and was an All-Pro twice (2009, 2010). He started all 171 games he played for the Jets and was selected to the Pro Bowl seven times. Mangold will be honored at the Sept. 25 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Revis, a cornerback, was chosen in the first round (No. 14) by the Jets in 2007. He was one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL in 2009 when he had six interceptions and 31 passes defended. He flourished under coach Rex Ryan and had 25 interceptions in eight seasons with the Jets, being selected as an All-Pro three times and making the Pro Bowl on five occasions. Revis will be feted on Nov. 27 when the Jets host the Chicago Bears.
