The New England Patriots defense will feature a lot of similar faces from 2015.
Edge defender Chandler Jones is in Arizona. Third defensive tackle Akiem Hicks is in Chicago. Third linebacker Jerod Mayo is retired. Chris Long joins the edge rotation, while Terrance Knighton and Shea McClellin take over for Hicks and Mayo.
Everyone else is back and the unit should be even better than last season.
Jabaal Sheard should thrive with another year in the system, while cornerbacks Logan Ryan and Malcolm Butler look be build on a strong 2015 season.
And that doesn't even account for the new rookies and sophomores, from Geneo Grissom and Trey Flowers to Malcom Brown and Vincent Valentine, and from Cyrus Jones and Darryl Roberts.
