Still-Busy Jets Add C. Pace, D. Woody
The New York Jets are on a free agent frenzy.
The Jets have agreed to deals with linebacker Calvin Pace, formerly of the Arizona Cardinals, and offensive lineman Damien Woody, formerly of the Detroit Lions.
Pace agreed to a six-year, $42 million contract that includes $22 million in guaranteed money. Woody agreed to a five-year, $25.5 million deal that includes $11 million in guaranteed money.
Today's moves come in the aftermath of the Jets signing free agent guard Alan Faneca and trading for defensive tackle Kris Jenkins.
In other moves today:
The Chicago Bears have traded quarterback Brian Griese to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an undisclosed draft pick in 2009. The Bears felt Griese was expendable after re-signing one quarterback, Rex Grossman, and signing another, Kyle Orton, to a contract extension.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and tailback Mewelde Moore, an unrestricted free agent formerly with the Minnesota Vikings, agreed to a three-year contract worth just less than $5 million.
Free agent safety Yeremiah Bell re-signed with the Miami Dolphins. He got a one-year, $1.4 million deal.
Linebacker Niko Koutouvides, a free agent from the Seattle Seahawks, agreed to a contract with the Denver Broncos.
Tight end Alge Crumpler, cut by the Atlanta Falcons, officially completed a two-year, approximately $5 million deal with the Tennessee Titans.
Free agent guard Keydrick Vincent, formerly of Arizona, agreed to a deal with Carolina.
Tight end Michael Gaines agreed to a contract with Detroit, leaving the Buffalo Bills.
