Marcus Gilchrist recorded three tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.
Although Blake Bortles through 40 passes in this game, Gilchrist failed to record an interception in his third straight contest. In addition, he now has recorded fewer than four tackles in five of his last seven games.
The secondary will feature the additions of cornerbacks
"I believe we can be as good as we want," defensive end
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."
Gilchrist has been limited during the team's offseason activities because of the shoulder issue.
Gilchrist could be held out for all or most of the team's on-field workouts during organized team activities and minicamp. The same report stated that he should be ready to go by training camp.
The 26-year-old started all 16 games for two consecutive seasons for the Chargers before being acquired by the Jets this offseason. Last season, Gilchrist had 76 total tackles, one sack, five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one interception
Gilchrist was drafted in the second round of the 2011 draft by the Chargers. He compiled 246 tackles, three sacks, five interceptions and 16 passes defensed over his four-year run in San Diego. Last season, the 26-year-old registered 76 total tackles, five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one interception.
