Report: Jerod Mayo has surgery to repair another torn pectoral


Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo ended this season the way he so often does — on injured reserve.

But he’s trying to take steps to make a comeback, somewhere.

According to Dan Roche of WBZ, Mayo had surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle, and hopes to be ready to return to training camp next year.

The question is whose. The Patriots have an option on his contract for next year, but it seems unlikely they’d invest heavily in a 30-year-old who has finished three straight seasons on injured reserve (torn patella tendon, torn pectoral). But Mayo took a pay cut this year to come back, so he might be willing to again.

    If he wants to stay, he will need to restructure his contract. There’s no way he’s getting paid $6M after finishing on IR the last 3 seasons. More so when NE gets $12M in salary cap if they release him. Wish he stays though. Love the guy and he’s a great role model in the locker room for the young guys.

    He was a good player but wasn’t the same this year, a noticeable decline. Time to move on.

    Incentive laden contract.

    Teddy Johnson had the same thing,two torn pecs year after year. Never the same. Almost, but not quite.

    He looked a step slow on the field this year. Not sure he was at 100% after last season’s patella tendon tear. Another pec injury to a back up LB, who does not play special teams, really affects his value to the Pats and on the open market.

    He’s said to be like another coach with his knowledge of the game and mentorship. Maybe the Pats see a cumulative value between that and his play to keep him at something close to the minimum in salary, laden with PT/health incentives, and let him try to carve out a role in camp.

    Credit this guy for the way he keeps getting back up again, major injury after major injury. This guy used to be one of the top 3 MLB’s in the game. Hope he’s able to come back to NE, or find a good situation somewhere else if that’s what it comes down to.

    Great player… but the Patriots will move on unless he agrees to a team friendly deal.

    Good guy and a heck of a player when he was healthy. The years have taken their toll, wish him well whatever comes next. From a Pats fan in section 308, thanks Jerod for doing it the right way and giving it everything you had every time you stepped on the field.

    Time to retire and take up coaching…

    i will forever get this guy confused with brandon spikes

    A real shame. Just when he had recovered to the point late this year to where he was looking almost like the old Mayo he gets banged up again.

    Good guy, excellent player, starting to rack up too many injuries though.

  14. projectshadow316 says: Jan 27, 2016 12:57 PM

    Hope he restructures to stay with the team, as he’s a hell of a run stopper when he’s on the field. Was one of the best MLBs until he got hurt.

    Oh well…………….

    When your body starts tearing itself apart from the inside, something is wrong. Maybe it had something to do with the strength coach getting tossed.
