The Jets do not expect to bring back free agent cornerback Morris Claiborne, according to Manish Mehta of the Daily News (on Twitter). Claiborne has spent the last two years with the Jets, but this appears to be the end of the line for the former first-round pick in New York.
Claiborne performed at a high level in 2016, his final year with the Cowboys, before injuries cut his season short. The Jets saw Claiborne as a potential value add and scooped him up on a one-year deal. Over the last two years, Claiborne has missed just two games combined, but he has been far from a shutdown corner.
Meanwhile, the Jets are hoping to re-sign cornerback Darryl Roberts before free agency opens on Wednesday. The two sides are working on a deal that would keep the versatile 28-year-old in the fold for at least one more season.
