The Jets have restructured the contract of DE Mike DeVito, lowering his base salary but adding bonuses to his deal.

DeVito had been slated to earn $2.26 million in base salary in 2012, the final year of his deal. Instead, his salary was dropped to $700,000. The contract is fully guaranteed.

Additionally, he will earn a $350,000 workout bonus and a $950,000 signing bonus, along with a $500,000 roster bonus he has already received. In total, his compensation for this season will be $2.5 million.

Set to enter his sixth season with the team, DeVito is a strong run stopper who has made 93 tackles over the past two seasons. He has started 22 games in that time span, but his first-string job may be gone following the Jets’ selection of DE Quinton Coples in the first round of the NFL draft last month.
