Former Jets center Nick Mangold is undecided if he'll return to football next season after sitting out 2017.
Mangold, 34, was released by the Jets last offseason to save $9.1 million in cap space. He last played in 2016 when he made just eight starts, the only time in his career that he missed more than two games in a season.
"[I'm] in football purgatory. I'm not up and I'm not down. I'm somewhere in between, all over the place," Mangold said on The Michael Kay Show. "My foot is starting to feel better. I'm starting to get back into things. Is this something I still want to do? I don't know where I am."
Mangold alludes to a foot injury, suffered in 2016, that hasn't healed yet.
The center is a seven-time Pro Bowler and twice All-Pro. He helped lead the Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games in 2009 and 2010.
