Known for always having a smile on his face, Nick will go down as a New York Jet great.

The team is releasing center Nick Mangold, the longest-tenured player on the team, Mangold announced on Twitter.

Mangold tweeted the news of his pending release Saturday, and the team made it official about an hour later. He was selected to seven pro bowls and was a first-team All-Pro in 2009 and 2010.

This past season, an ankle injury suffered early in the Game 7 win over the Ravens sidelined Mangold for the next four games.

Mangold, who the Jets drafted with a first-round pick in the 2006 National Football League draft out of Ohio State, made the announcement Saturday afternoon via Twitter.

Mark Cuban sends message to President Trump with No. 46 jersey
That had come after some critical remarks of Trump by Cuban, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter during the presidential campaign. Trump tweeted on February 12 that Cuban, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, is "not smart enough to run for president".

He has one year left on his contract at a salary of $6.075 million. "He will always mean a lot to everyone in this organization".

At the end of the season, Mangold indicated he had no desire to retire.

Based on his Twitter statement, it doesn't look like Mangold will be retiring, which means he could be in for a big pay day when free agency begins on March 9.

Since 1998, the Jets have had only two full-time centers - Hall of Fame finalist Kevin Mawae (through 2005) and Mangold.

Mangold was one of the most recognizable Jets players over his time with the team, with his fantastic play and omnipresent lumberjack beard. And even when he came out of a game, Nick's M.O. was to be back on the field one play or at worst one series later.
