Jets Cut ‘Can’t Wait’ Bart Scott, Calvin Pace, and Others!

Manti Te’o at NFL combine hopes “hoax” doesn’t affect draft status

As predicted the New York Jets cut linebacker Bart Scott, who coined the infamous phrase “Can’t Wait”, linebacker Calvin Pace, safety Eric Smith, tackle Jason Smith, and waived tight end/fullback Josh Baker! The Jets were $23 Million over the salary cap before the move, and now are $8 Million in the positive (under the cap)! The Jets will lose about $1.5 Million to Scott and $3 Million to Pace in tied up money, but cleared $8.6 Million for Scott and $11.5 Million for Pace. The Jets got $3 Million clear for cutting Eric Smith and $12 Million for cutting Jason Smith, who was picked up from the Jets in August knowing they could cut in the off-season for no expense. Baker spent the entire season on the injured reserve, and the Jets waived the rights to him.
