The Jets haven’t signed many free agents so far.  On Sunday, they kept one of their own.

A league source tells PFT that linebacker Calvin Pace has re-signed with the Jets.  It’s a two-year deal worth $5 million.

Pace, 33, signed a six-year deal with the Jets in 2008.  Released last year, he re-signed with the team for another season.

The former Cardinals entered the league in 2003 as a first-round pick.  He spent five seasons in Arizona.

Pace has started every game of the last three seasons.  In 2013, he racked up a career high 10 sacks.

He joins tight end Jeff Cumberland, defensive end Leger Douzable, kicker Nick Folk, cornerback Ellis Lankster, and cornerback Darrin Walls as players who have re-signed with the Jets.
