New York Jets have released Darrelle Revis, and they are trying to move on from him. They have found their replacement for Revis, and it is likely going to be former Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback Morris Claiborne, NFL Network Insider’s Ian Rapoport reported. Claiborne has been the best corner that Cowboys had and it’s going to be interesting what will Dallas does about this situation.
The draft is pretty corner-heavy, so there is a big chance that Cowboys are going into the draft planning which corner to draft. There is no way that they won’t draft at least one CB in the draft; maybe they spend their first or second round choice on a corner.
Claiborne is probably coming off his best season as a pro since being drafted 6th overall back in 2012, but he played just seven games before going down because of his groin injury. He did make an appearance in the Playoffs, but he wasn’t really noticeable. He played more than 11 games in just one season in his young career. Both Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne will be gone from Dallas via Free Agency, leaving Cowboys with only three corners.
Jets, on the other hand, have started their rebuild. They have cleared the deck and are now starting to add some pieces. With Darrelle now out of New York, Claiborne will step right into that starting lineup and will take his spot. He will probably be paired with Buster Skrine in the defensive backfield for the Jets. Not really the strongest pairing, but it can’t be much worse than what the New York Jets had last season.
