NFL Injury Report:
The New York Jets made several salary cap-related cuts
yesterday, as the team announced the release of multiple veterans, including
linebackers Bart Scott and Calvin Pace and safety Eric Smith.
While the Jets have released Scott to avoid his full 2013
salary, there is a chance that the veteran re-signs with the club on a lesser
deal. Scott’s agent said yesterday that he’s planning on meeting with New York to
discuss a contract that would keep his client with the team next season.
By cutting Scott, the Jets received $7.15 million in salary
cap relief. ESPN reported that, in trimming the roster, New York shaved
approximately $30 million off its cap in one day.
Scott was expected to be cut entering the offseason, but his
name wasn’t included in the first round of moves announced yesterday. Pace,
Smith, offensive tackle Jason Smith and tight end Josh Baker were the first
announced releases, with word of Scott’s cut coming later in the day.

At the very least, his play couldn’t match the remaining cost of his...
