By retaining locker-room favorite Steve McLendon, the Jets helped their depth on the defensive line. At 33, he's a first- and second-down player who can play 20 to 30 snaps a game. He's probably a better rotational player at this point in his career. He played 42 percent of the snaps in 2018, and saw a slight decline in his production: His work ethic is contagious, and he's great for team chemistry. The starting defensive line remains intact, with Henry Anderson also returning, but there could be a big addition in the draft, Quinnen Williams or maybe Nick Bosa.
