The New York Jets have signed Steve McLendon to a three-year deal, worth up to $12 million, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
The addition of McLendon, who is viewed as a reliable run-stopper, will help offset the Jets' loss of Damon Harrison in free agency. The 30-year-old nose tackle is off the IDP radar, however, coming off a 2015 season in which he recorded 14 tackles and a sack in 16 games (including nine starts) with the Steelers.
Steve McLendon recorded three tackles (all solo) in the Pittsburgh Steelers ' loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
McLendon, who is an unrestricted free agent, finished the season with 14 tackles (11 solo), including one sack. Playing a full 16 games for only the second time in his six-year career didn't seem to help McLendon, who recorded his fewest tackles in three years. When you consider that he also has just five career sacks, there is no reason to be looking at McLendon come your fantasy draft.
