EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets have inducted former sack-dancing defensive end Mark Gastineau and popular wide receiver Wesley Walker into the team's Ring of Honor at halftime of their Monday night game against the Houston Texans.

The two were honored on the field as the third class of inductees, joining former Jets stars including Joe Namath, Curtis Martin, Joe Klecko and Don Maynard.

Gastineau was a five-time All-Pro selection who played all 10 of his NFL seasons with the Jets, and holds the team record with 107 1/2 career sacks and sacks in a season with 22 in 1984. A fired-up Gastineau tells the crowd to not boo but to "support your team!''

Walker played his entire career with the Jets, catching 438 passes for 8,306 yards and 71 touchdowns from 1978-89.
