BREAKING: Calvin Pace Back with the Jets: 2 Years, Five Million Dollars

Welcome back to an old friend, coming off his best season.

According to Pro Football Talk, Calvin Pace has been re-signed by the Jets, the financials being a two year contract worth $5 million. Here are his stats, as a reminder:

If you recall, he was released prior to last season, only to be brought back at a reduced salary. He rewarded the Jets with his best season as a pass rusher, posting ten sacks.

Clearly the Jets have put a high priority on retaining their front seven, with the mainstays still here, Leger Douzable re-signed, and now Calvin Pace. The Jets are very high on their front seven, and with good reason, as we saw last year.
