ORCHARD PARK —The Jets have a ton of uncertainty in their front office and coaching staff; they also have a lot of players who may not be back in 2013.
The Jets are expected to release linebacker Bart Scott, linebacker Calvin Pace, safety Eric Smith and tackle Jason Smith before free agency begins in March to clear salary-cap room.
Scott declined to comment on his future. He said he’s just concentrating on getting his injured right big toe better.
Pace said he’s not sure what will happen.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t make those decisions. I would love to be [back]. We’ll see.”
The Jets also have a number of their own free agents who could depart. The most high-profile are tight end Dustin Keller, safety LaRon Landry, safety Yeremiah Bell, guard Brandon Moore, guard Matt Slauson, wide receiver Braylon Edwards, running back Shonn Greene, linebacker Bryan Thomas and defensive tackle Mike DeVito.
Most of the players said they would like to be back.
