In the 2008 offseason the Jets gave Pace a six year, 42 million dollar deal, after showing some promise in Arizona. He has not turned to be the guy the Jets were hoping for, as after a good first two seasons with the Jets ,he has only recorded 12 sacks in the last three seasons. At the age of 32, he has really slowed down, and the Jets cutting him and freeing up salary is a lock.
2) Bart Scott
Most Jets fans "can't wait!" for bart Scott to be cut in the offseason. The 32 year old linebacker used to be a fan favorite, but his play on the field has slowed down over the past few seasons. He has created more headlines with his mouth, then good play on the field. After recording 92 tackles in his first season with the Jets, Bart's tackles have regressed each year over the past three seasons. As much as Rex is loyal to Bart, cutting him will free up some much needed cap space for the Jets.
3) Jason Smith
The thing Jets fans will remember Smith is "63 is eligible". The former draft bust is getting a good salary, and the Jets cutting him will free up a ton of cap space. The reason Tebow is not on this list is because I think he will be traded to the Jaguars eventually.
