Reports: Jets Trade McLendon to the Bucs

Steve McLendon

After another Jets loss, there are reports saying the team has traded Steve McLendon to the Tampa Bay Bucs. Rick Stroud covers the Bucs for the Tampa Bay Times and he sent out this tweet.

SNY is confirming the report.

Terms of the deal are unknown but the ten year vet is a team leader. At 34 years old McLendon would have been a long shot to return to the team next year. This is another sure sign that Joe Douglas and company are now fully invested in securing the first overall draft pick and freeing up as much cap room as possible for 2021.

The trade deadline is November 3rd, it will be interesting to see what other moves the Jets make. Visit our forums to see what other fans are saying about the Jets trading Steve McClendon to the Bucs.

EDIT: My Sports Update provided these terms on Twitter.
