McDonald will join former Cyclones Breece Hall and Allen Lazard on the Jets. McDonald left Iowa State as the all-time sack leader in the Big 12 and will now join a defensive head coach. The Jets defense was already one of the better units in the NFL and all they did was add a dynamic pass rusher. Oh and not to mention Aaron Rodgers.
Stay tuned to WRNL as we break this down over the weekend.
