The Jets announced they have created a Ring of Honor in their new stadium, and will enshrine six former players into the Ring during an Aug. 16 ceremony.

The first inductees will be Weeb Ewbank, Winston Hill, Joe Klecko, Curtis Martin, Don Maynard and Joe Namath.

"This organization has always had a deep appreciation for and admiration of those who have worn this team's uniform," said Jets Chairman and CEO Woody Johnson in a press release from the team. "These six men span generations of Jets football, all embodying the best of this game and what it means to truly be a Jet. With this new stadium we now have a proper way to salute those who have helped make this franchise what it is today."

They will be inducted at halftime of the first game at New Meadowlands Stadium, which is between the Jets and Giants.
