NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have re-signed linebacker Josh Mauga, one of the team's four restricted free agents, to a one-year contract.

Agent Michael Hoffman confirmed the deal on his Twitter page Saturday. Mauga is a key backup and special teams performer who missed 11 games last season with a torn pectoral muscle

.

The Jets decided not to offer Mauga a low tender offer of $1.32 million, and instead were able to re-sign him at presumably an even lower amount.

The Jets' other RFAs are tight end Jeff Cumberland, who received the $1.32 million tender, long snapper Tanner Purdum and offensive tackle Austin Howard

The Jets, taking care of some backburner business Saturday, re-signed LB Josh Mauga to a one-year contract, according to his agent, Michael Hoffman. 

Mauga was a restricted free agent. Instead of making the low tender offer ($1.32 million), which would've entitled them to the right of first refusal but no draft-pick compensation, the Jets were able to sign him for less than the tender amount, probably the $630,000 minimum. It made sense for both sides. Mauga didn't have any leverage after missing the final 11 games with a torn pectoral muscle, but he preferred to remain with the Jets instead of trying free agency. 

The Jets could try the same thing with long snapper Tanner Purdum, another restricted free agent. TE Jeff Cumberland received the $1.32 million tender.

He's playing LB and ST, his IQ isn't that big of a deal.

Nobody is going to do back flips on this news, but it is a good signing at the right price.

One year deal. I think we'll be hearing that term a lot over the next few weeks.

Don't buy green bananas, Rex.

Why would any football player in their right mind wanna play for us Jets, three things! we dont have a QB, we don't have a signal caller and we do not have a QB. that chit is crazy. Sounds to me like Rex Ryan's depending on the defense he puts on the field.

Defense wins championship good luck with that rexipuss.......what a jerk!

With just a couple of days before the start of free agency, the New York Jets have re-signed linebacker Joshua Mauga to a one-year deal according to his agent.

It is assumed because he was a restricted free agent and that the team did offer him a tender that he took less than the lowest tender of $1.32 million. Mauga missed 11 games last season due to a torn pectoral muscle.

Muaga is one of the four RFA’s the Jets have including  tight end Jeff Cumberland, who received the tender, long snapper Tanner Purdum and offensive tackle Austin Howard.

Nice re- signing. Mauga is good enough to be a solid NFL starter IMO.
