AFC East Notes: Patriots, Rowe, Jets

The Patriots‘ final roster could include a sixth cornerback, as Doug Kyed of writes. Right now, he expects the Pats to roll into the season with Stephon Gilmore, Duke Dawson, Jonathan Jones, Jason McCourty, and Eric Rowe as their top five cornerbacks.

However, J.C. Jackson is also making a strong case and has been getting more reps in the starting defense than Rowe this offseason. Keion Crossen and Ryan Lewis have also looked sharp and Cyrus Jones‘ return ability should keep him in the conversation. The only corner who seems to be out of the conversation is Jomal Wiltz, an Iowa State product who spent last year on New England’s taxi squad.

    It’s time for Cyrus Jones to be shown the door. He gets burned way to much and his return ability is no longer needed with Cordarrelle Patterson now in the mix. Plus un-drafted rookie J.C. Jackson has looked very good in camp so far. I know Cyrus has had injury problems but if he doesn’t put it together this preseason, the looming bust label is ready for branding.
