The Jets are bringing in free agent defensive linemen for workouts left and right.
Gang Green is working out former Bears pass rusher Lamarr Houston and ex-Patriots defensive tackle Chris Jones, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport adds the Jets are hosting ex-Rams defensive lineman Tyrunn Walker, former Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley and former Browns defensive lineman Lavar Edwards. New York also recently brought in former Chiefs defensive tackle Jaye Howard, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo further supplied.
The Jets have had so much talent on their defensive line for so long that it has been easy to take for granted. You might even forget about it as a need.
When you actually think about the current state of affairs, however, it is not entirely clear what the plan is on the defensive line. Beyond Leonard Williams and Steve McLendon, there is not much in the way of proven starters. It is a position that could use some addressing.
