Jets WR Wayne Chrebet, who outlasted Keyshawn Johnson enroute to 580 career receptions (and almost as many career concussions) has announced his retirement.

One of the more popular figures in Long Island history — perhaps more so than Peppi Marchello, less than Howard Stern —- Chrebet’s gutsy performances will long be remembered by Jets fans desperate to cling to anything positive from the last 36 years.
