The former Pittsburgh Steelers man was given the opportunity to check out free agency last week, but the Jets soon came calling again to re-sign the offensive guard at a price that suits them.
For the Jets the move acts as a way of trying to gain some kind of continuity from recent seasons, with Colon putting pen to paper on a one-year deal said to be worth $2 million.
However, it still doesn't act as an improvement to a very average part of their roster that needs an increase in quality sooner rather than later.
Colon started all of his games in his first season with the Jets last year, but the final game of the season saw him tear his bicep.
After surgery, the guard has recovered enough and Gang Green will now see him again as an integral part of their offense.
