    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."

    Browns working to re-sign CB Buster Skrine

    The Browns are hopeful they can re-sign cornerback Buster Skrine but are probably going to have to try to do so after he hits the free agent market, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Skrine had a single-season best four interceptions in 2014 and will be someone that could command a hefty price tag on the open market. The Plain Dealer reports that Skrine is expecting anywhere from $5.5 million to $7 million per season. The Browns should be in a good position to match an offer for Skrine. Depending on what the 2015 cap number per team is, the Browns are likely to have well over $30 million to spend in free agency.
