With Calvin Pace(notes) out for the first four games of the season after failing a drug test and the team still uncertain about former No.1 pick Vernon Gholston(notes), the New York Jets may consider adding veteran Willie McGinest(notes), according to the NFL Network.
Profootballtalk.com suggest the Jets could add McGinest for the first four games of the season, however, since McGinest is a vested veteran, he'd be entitled to receive his full salary as termination pay, if he's on the opening-day roster and if he's cut after Pace returns.
So the cheaper alternative would be to carry a guy who otherwise would have been dumped before the season started, and to drop him behind Vernon Gholston on the depth chart while Pace is gone, according to Profootballtalk.com.
