Jets WR Eric Decker lauds CB Buster Skrine: 'He's stood out in camp'

For the most part, the New York Jets' overhauled secondary has impressed. Darrelle Revis is, well, Darrelle Revis, while offseason-acquisitions Marcus Gilchrist and Buster Skrine have played well in camp.Skrine, who's expected to be the slot corner for the Jets, is a scrappy and tough player, constantly mixing it up with receivers. That's exactly what his teammate Eric Decker likes...

New York Jets: Position Preview: Cornerback

The New York Jets enjoyed quite the face-lift this off-season as new general manager Mike Maccagnan cleaned house, bringing in a new head coach and a number of new (and old) talented players. Perhaps no area in the Jets roster faced more of an upgrade though than the team’s secondary–specifically, the cornerbacks. The additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster...

Overshadowed by Revis and Cromartie, Gilchrist an underreated signing

The New York Jets had one of the most active offseasons in the NFL, signing Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, and Buster Skrine to bolster their secondary. Another player brought in by the Jets was safety Marcus Gilchrist, but he hasn't received the attention the other three corners have gotten.That doesn't mean he won't make an impact this season, though. That's far from the truth...

Five Jets facing a make-or-break season in 2015

The New York Jets overhauled their defense this offseason, starting with new head coach Todd Bowles. They then brought in a bevy of defensive players, including Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, Buster Skrine, Marcus Gilchrist, and rookie Leonard Williams. Unfortunately, the Jets also lost Sheldon Richardson for four games —and possibly much more — to suspension, and have yet...

Todd Bowles on CB Milliner: 'I just hope he's healthy to give himself a chance'

After a bevy of offseason moves, the New York Jets' secondary -- cornerback in particular -- is stacked. The Jets brought in All-Pro Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, Buster Skrine, and Marcus Gilchrist in the past six months, giving new head coach Todd Bowles plenty of weapons in the secondary.One player who's become somewhat forgotten is 2013 top-10 pick, Dee Milliner.

Evaluating the New York Jets’ Safeties

The Gang Green’s secondary has gotten a major shot in the arm with the additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine. Revis shuts down half of the field, Cro’ can still run with just about anyone and Skrine will efficiently patrol the slot. Those guys take a lot of pressure off of the leaky pass defense the Jets sported last year. What about the safety play...

This sleeping giant will emerge for the Jets in 2015

The New York Jets have a new-look defense in just about every aspect. Rookie Leonard Williams joins an already elite defensive line, Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, and Buster Skrine will solidify the cornerback position, and Marcus Gilchrist is a candidate to win the starting free safety job. Other than that, the defense is practically the same! Jokes aside, New York's defense...

Could the Jets move Dee Milliner to safety?

Dee Milliner has become somewhat of the "forgotten man" in the New York Jets' secondary after the team added Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, Buster Skrine, and Marcus Gilchrist this offseason. Milliner, the ninth-overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, has failed to live up to expectations coming out of Alabama's defense. His season ended early in 2014 due to a torn Achilles tendon...

The New York Jets made a lot of improvements to the secondary in the off-season. They had good reason, as they were routinely torched in 2014. They added the big names, reuniting Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie on the outside. But, they also added a guy not so well-known. They added a guy named Buster Skrine. On its face, one my question the value of Skrine. In 2014, Skrine...
