The New York Jets have finally signed a much needed cornerback.
According to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN, The New York Jets have signed former Cowboy Morris Claiborne.
Claiborne, 26, was widely labeled as a draft bust for underperforming ever since he was taken No. 6 overall in the 2012 draft. In 2016, he had his best season to date and was ranked as Pro Football Focus 12th-best corner last year year. Unfortunately, however, injuries forced Claiborne to miss more than half of the regular season, though he did return for the playoffs.
The Jets had one of the worst secondary’s in the league last season and need some depth at the position. The signing of Claiborne is a low risk high reward situation. Hopefully a change of scenery is what Claiborne needs and he becomes the shut down corner he was expected to be when he was drafted.
