Seeing a bunch of people figuring on Scott, Devito, Pouha n Harris being let go. I can see letting 2 of em go (Scott n Devito) but we need some veteran bruisers in the middle. Don't trust Ellis enough yet to make up for all those losses.
No question Harris has gotta stay and hopefully Pouha too.
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 three 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.
We don't save $12M on Jason Smith. He was only counting $2.45M against the cap. It's irrelevant what he was scheduled to make in 2013 because we weren't keeping him from Day 1 anyway.
