The NFL, announcing the suspension on Thursday, said Pace will be eligible to return after the Jets' Oct. 4 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Looks like he's the starting OLB.

I think this is pretty big as Pace is one of the Jets' best players on defense and their certainly their best pass rusher. Blocking Kris Jenkins in the middle just got a lot easier without having to worry about doubling Pace outside...

Never too early too be thinking about Game 1. Pace is a fine player and I'm glad Rex Ryan has one less weapon in trying to stop our offense.

Vernon Gholston will be his replacement..if he actually plays up to his potential. Most Jet fans seem to think he is a bust and a "muscle bound waste of space" who "hides behind the bench".

Matt Schaub approves of this suspension.
