Juston Burris' Snaps Go Down: Jets Defensive Snap Totals vs. Patriots

New, comments
Billie Weiss/Getty Images

Rookie Juston Burris was the number three cornerback for the Jets against New England. The rookie fourth rounder only got onto the field for 49% of Jets defensive snaps as Darrelle Revis and Buster Skrine stayed on the field for all but one snap apiece.

I have to question this decision a bit. Revis and Skrine have not played well enough to take a benching off the table. More than benching these guys, this is a chance to get Burris game reps. The Jets surely aren't going anywhere this season. Why give all the playing time to a corner who almost assuredly won't be on the team next season and another who might not be?
