NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have re-signed veteran linebacker Calvin Pace to a two-year deal, bringing back one of their sacks leaders from last season.

Pace had a career-high 10 sacks for Rex Ryan’s defense- second only to Muhammad Wilkerson’s 10 ½ - in his sixth season with the Jets. The 33-year-old outside linebacker was an unrestricted free agent.

Pace, who played his first five NFL seasons with Arizona, has 52 career sacks and has started every game the last three years. He is likely to be slated to start opposite Quinton Coples again this season.

The Jets cut Pace last offseason to save money under the salary cap before re-signing him last April. He rewarded them by having one of his best overall seasons, which included 53 tackles, two forced fumbles and three passes defensed.
