Jets need corners so why not look at the market?
The Jets haven’t made a big splash in free agency, they have focused on building the offensive line by signing Beachum in their overhaul and signed kicker Catanzaro from the Cardinals. I liked what they are doing because after releasing Clady, and Mangold the Jets need to rebuild that line. But now they need to bring in some corners. They want to start developing some of the young guys but as it stands right now they have Marcus Williams, Buster Skrine, and Justin Burris. They have to address it and I don’t think the Draft would solve it.
The Jets don’t have a true No.1 cornerback after releasing Darrelle Revis and they don’t really have a No.2 corner either as Marcus Williams didn’t really didn’t live up to the hype, and Buster Skrine needs to stay in the slot. Now remember this year’s draft is loaded with really talented corners one of the deepest class in recent memory, so if you’re the Jets, they would expect to draft at least one maybe with the sixth pick. GM Mike Maccagnan said that there was a number of intriguing corners but he doesn’t value them at No. 1 or that money wise. Still, you should bring in some veteran talent to at least have a band aid to cover the boo-boo.
Sterling Moore- He’s a man to man corner with solid ball skills, and he is only 27. Definitely someone to look at.
Brandon Carr- He never missed a game or a start in his career. He’s 31 years old, maybe worth a 1 year contract.
Those guys were at least my top 2 since the rest were very old, and some didn’t really fit in their scheme. Morris Claiborne was another consideration but the former sixth overall pick in the 2012 draft was a big disappointment but should promise before he got hurt last season.
