Report: Jets re-sign LB Calvin Pace to two-year, $5 million deal
Calvin Pace will be staying in New York, thanks to a reported two-year, $5 million deal he signed with the Jets on Sunday.
For the second offseason in a row, Calvin Pace has signed a contract with the New York Jets. The linebacker re-signed with the team Sunday in a two-year, $5 million deal, according to ProFootballTalk.
The 33-year-old linebacker totaled a career-high 10 sacks in 2013, second on the team behind only Muhammad Wilkerson's 10.5. No other Jets defensive player had more than five sacks. The 10 sacks were also more than Pace's combined total of 7.5 from the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Pace spent more time a pass-rusher last season after Antwan Barnes was placed on injured reserve in October.
Pace has been with the Jets since signing a six-year deal with the team in 2008. The linebacker only played out five of the six seasons in the contract though because the Jets released him in February 2013 in a cost-cutting move.
After spending just over a month as a free agent last offseason, Pace ended up re-signing with the Jets in April. Before originally signing with New York in 2008, Pace spent five seasons with the Cardinals, the same team that picked him 18th overall in the 2003 NFL Draft.
