Calvin Pace had a career year in 2013, and the Jets hope to bring him back in 2014.

The Jets met with Pace’s representatives at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last week and are hoping to re-sign the outside linebacker, according to a source.

Pace, who will become a free agent on March 11, will turn 34 in October, but he thrived last year in a rebuilt Jets defense alongside Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson. Pace had a career-high 10 sacks, second on the team to Wilkerson’s 10.5.

The Jets released Pace last February to save some money against the salary cap, but ended up bringing him back on a cheaper deal in April. It is unclear how much money it would take to keep Pace. He played for $1 million last year and is likely looking for a bit of a raise.

If Pace does want more money, he cannot sign a new deal until after free agency starts on March 11. Players who played for the minimum salary cannot be extended for anything more than the minimum.
