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."
Skrine had attracted many suitors including the Jets and that is exactly where he landed. Entering his fifth season in the NFL, all with the Browns, Skrine will join Dee Milliner at the cornerback spot.
The 25-year-old has 196 total tackles and six interceptions for his career.
The fifth-year corner tied for fourth in the NFL in 2014 with 18 passes defensed. He added four interceptions and 67 total tackles.
The Browns hope to retain Skrine, but they know it will be tough. He is seen as one of the top free agents on the market at his position.
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.
