Report: Jets bring back linebacker Calvin Pace
The Jets cut Calvin Pace two months ago and now they're bringing him back, according to a report. Pace was scheduled to earn $11.6 million before he was cut. Terms of his new deal were not disclosed, but it's safe to say the Jets are paying much less for the 32-year-old outside linebacker.
After cutting Calvin Pace in a salary purge two months ago, the Jets are bringing back the outside linebacker on a one-year contract.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the deal. Pace was scheduled to earn $11.6 million this season before he was cut. Releasing him cost the Jets $3 million in dead money, according to ESPN.com. Terms of his new deal were not disclosed.
Pace, 32, signed a six-year, $42 million deal with the Jets in 2008 but has never made a Pro Bowl or recorded double-digit sacks.
Still, he was highly productive that first year as a Jet, registering 80 tackles, seven sacks, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
His sacks declined each of the past three years. Despite playing 94 percent of the defensive snaps last season, Pace finished with just 55 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble.
