According to Dan Roche of WBZ-TV, Mayo had surgery on Tuesday to fix a torn pectoral muscle. Roche adds Mayo should be good to go for training camp. Mayo suffered the injury in the divisional round win against the Chiefs. Mayo had a decreased role this season with Jamie Collins and Dont'a Hightower seeing significantly more playing time than him and even Jonathan Freeny at times. The linebacker wrapped up his eighth season in the league and finished the year with 47 tackles, the fewest of his career. He likely will need to get his contract restructured, or he could even be flat out released as his cap hit is $11.4 million next season.
