Jets GM Joe Douglas is getting a late start on the job, but he says it’s not too late to upgrade the roster.
“The hunt never stops for players,” the GM said (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Rich Cimini).
Douglas also noted that the Jets have No. 3 waiver priority and plan to be active in that area. The GM also plans to improve the cornerback group as he acknowledged that it’s an area of need.
Currently, the Jets have Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts as their starting outside corners with Brian Poole in line to man the nickel position. It’s not a stellar trio and the supporting cast isn’t any great shakes either.
Their cornerback search could theoretically lead them back to Morris Claiborne, who remains on the open market. Sam Shields, Davon House, Captain Munnerlyn, and Coty Sensabaugh, and Marcus Williams are other veteran free agent corners who could hold appeal for Gang Green.
