The New York Daily News reports the Jets have yet to engage in contract talks with free agent OLB Calvin Pace.

The Jets are on the record as wanting Pace back, but prefer to slow play talks. With Pace going on 34, the sides will likely haggle over years. Pace will undoubtedly push for 2-3, with the Jets insisting on one. Pace is coming off one of the best seasons of his career, notching 53 tackles and 10 sacks as a 16-game starter.

The Jets are "very interested" in re-signing impending free agent OLB Calvin Pace.

Pace, 33, is coming off one of the best seasons of his career. He started all 16 games for the third consecutive season and recorded 53 tackles and a career-best 10 sacks. The Jets still need to be eyeing younger pass rushers in the draft this year, but re-signing Pace to a one-year deal would make plenty of sense.

Jets re-signed OLB Calvin Pace to a one-year deal.

Pace was released by the Jets in a February salary cap purge. He'll get penciled back into the starting lineup opposite Antwan Barnes, but the Jets should still be pursuing pass-rushing help. Pace, 32 and declining sharply, has recorded a total of 13 sacks over the last three season.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini "wouldn't be shocked" if the Jets re-signed OLB Calvin Pace.

Pace, 32, was released in February, and he has drawn zero known interest on the free-agent market. Not many veterans have. There's said to be some "pro-Pace sentiment" within the Jets' organization. The 10-year veteran started all 16 games in 2012, recording 55 tackles and three sacks.

The Jets are expected to release OLB Calvin Pace, ILB Bart Scott, OT Jason Smith, and S Eric Smith as soon as the waiver period opens in February.

Pace has been one of the least productive pass rushers in the league over the past hree seasons. The moves will save $8.56 million on Pace, $7.15 million on Scott, $12 million on Jason Smith, and $3 million on Eric Smith while accounting for just $4.5 million in dead money. The Jets will have still little cap space with just 10 starters under contract.

Coach Rex Ryan assessed OLB Calvin Pace (foot) as "only 20 percent healthy" by the end of last season.

Pace had surgery to repair a broken right foot in late August, and never regained his explosion. Pro Football Focus rated Pace in the bottom five outside linebackers in pass-rushing effectiveness. There's plenty of room for improvement now that Pace is healthy.
