    CB Buster Skrine: Jets should have 'a playoff defense'

    The Jets will make their 2015 season debut Sunday against the Browns, and the team will have plenty of new defensive acquisitions on display. The secondary will feature the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie, nickel corner Buster Skrine and free safety Marcus Gilchrist. Plus, first-round pick Leonard Williams will move into the starting lineup due to Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension. "I believe we can be as good as we want," defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said, per NJ.com. "We can be great. We can be the No. 1 defense in the league. We've just got to come in each and every week improving and do our jobs every Sunday." The Jets defense is expected to be aggressive, especially with the blitz, under first-year coach Todd Bowles. "This defense should be a playoff defense," Skrine said. "The defense should get us in the playoffs. We have the defense to it. We've got a lot of talent on this defense. It's just about all coming together."

"A tweak to me means you are out a day or two and come back but obviously it has been bothering him longer than that. He is getting the necessary help and getting better."
