RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

McLendon will play his first season with the Jets in 2016 after spending his first six-years in the league with the Steelers. He never played more than 34.2 percent of Pittsburgh’s defensive snaps, but figures to start and see more time now that he’s with New York. That being said, McLendon is still a run stuffing defensive tackle who doesn’t rack up a lot of stats, as evidenced by his 14 tackles and one sack in 16 games played last year. Don’t expect big numbers, even if his role does increase.

2015

McLendon returns as the Steelers starting nose tackle, but injuries, which have resulted in his missing 17 games over the past five season, creates opportunities for Cam Thomas and Daniel McCullers to get their share of defensive snaps.

2014

The addition of Cam Thomas may result in McLendon moving from nose tackle to left end. Either way, he should still make an impact this season.

2013

McLendon will be asked to fill the cleats of former nose tackle Casey Hampton this season. He's a better pash rusher than Hampton, and should help a Steelers' defensive unit that recorded just 37 sacks in 2012.

2012

A former undrafted free agent, McLendon was expected to open the season as Pittsburgh's starting nose tackle, but Casey Hampton would still rotate in on obvious running downs.

2011

McLendon, signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2009, has played in four games with one tackle and a fumble recovery.

2010
