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.
