Willie Colon is right where he wanted to be.

"I'm happy to be home," the veteran right guard said on a conference call Wednesday after re-signing with the Jets. "I always wanted to be back with the Jets."

According to a source, Colon inked a one-year deal worth $2 million.

His future with the team seemed bleak after he tore his bicep in the final minutes of the 2013 regular-season finale. But Colon, who turns 31 next month, said he expects to be able to participate fully in football activities by June.

"I have a lot of hopes for us and I know we are a team on the rise," said the Hofstra product, who started all 16 games last season.

Pace surprised Revis a Pat. Jets fans weren't the only ones surprised to see Darrelle Revis sign with the rival Patriots. "That's the last place I ever expected him to go play at," Jets linebacker Calvin Pace said on a conference call Wednesday.

Pace, who re-signed this week, spent five seasons with Revis before the cornerback was traded to Tampa Bay last April. "It's a good situation for him, to go up there," Pace said. "I wish him the best -- except for two times a year."
