New Jets coach Todd Bowles is focused on shoring up his new defensive line.
On Wednesday, the team announced the signing of former Cardinals defensive end Ronald Talley, who played three seasons in Arizona (2011-13). He was out of the NFL in 2014.

The 28-year-old played one season under Bowles, who was the Cardinals' defensive coordinator the last two seasons.
Talley (6-3, 282) was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Packers in 2009 and spent one season on their practice squad. In 2010, he was with the Packers in training camp and later joined the Cardinals' practice squad.
He had 14 tackles and one sack in 15 games (one start) during his three seasons in Arizona. Talley signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014 but was a final cut and didn't play last season.
The Jets also are expected to visit with two other free-agent defensive linemen, Chris Canty and Kendall Langford.
According to a source, Canty will arrive in New Jersey Friday night, take a physical and meet with coaches on Saturday at the team's facility. The defensive end played for the Giants from 2009-2012 and was a member of their Super Bowl XLVI championship team. He played for the Ravens the last two seasons.
Langford, a former Rams defensive tackle, is also expected to visit with the Jets this week. Before signing with St. Louis in 2012, he played for the Dolphins from 2008-11. Bowles and his new defensive coordinator, Kacy Rodgers, were members of Miami's staff during that time.
