Chrebet played his entire NFL career with the Jets from 1995-2005 after being undrafted out of Hofstra University. He ranks second in Jets history with 580 receptions, and third with 7,365 yards receiving and 41 touchdown catches.
With fellow inductees such as Joe Namath, Don Maynard, Joe Klecko and Curtis Martin in attendance, Chrebet was honored at midfield Monday night at MetLife Stadium.
''To see all the No. 80 jerseys,'' a choked-up Chrebet said, ''I can't tell you what it means to me.''
Hess, the team's sole owner from 1984-99, was represented by his son John B. Hess.
