D'Brickashaw Ferguson's Ironman streak for Jets: 10,357 snaps and counting

D'Brickashaw Ferguson did it again. He made it through the entire season without missing a single offensive snap, keeping his mind-blowing Ironman streak intact.

In 10 seasons, the New York Jets' left tackle hasn't missed a game (160 starts) or a play due to injury (10,357 snaps). The only time he wasn't on the field was the final play of the 2008 season, when the soon-to-be-fired Eric Mangini removed the entire offensive line for a gadget play that didn't work.

It has been a truly remarkable run of durability by Ferguson, who has yet to appear on the injury report ... in a decade. The man hasn't missed a practice due to an injury ... ever.

This season, he was the only player on the Jets (offense and defense) to log every snap. Ferguson played 1,114 snaps, according to the NFL. Left guard James Carpenter (1,111) was close behind. Safety Marcus Gilchrist was the leader on defense, with 1,051 out of 1,056.

Ferguson will have to re-work his contract in the offseason. His cap charge is $14.1 million, which is too much. He didn't have his best season. According to the stats-based web site ProFootballFocus.com, he allowed 39 quarterback hurries, tied for the sixth-most among tackles.
