On today’s podcast we close out the positional preview series by looking at the defensive backfield.
The outlook for the cornerbacks and the safeties could not be more different. Safety is one of the strongest positions on the team. Franchise player and reigning team MVP Marcus Maye is back for his fifth NFL season. He is joined by free agent addition Lamarcus Joyner.
Cornerback might be the weakest position on the team. The Jets not only lack a proven track record at the position. They lack anybody with a high Draft pedigree that could ease concerns. There are a bunch of late round picks and undrafted free agents in their first or second NFL seasons. This is a pure coach them up situation. How effectively that can be done will have dramatic implications on the Jets’ 2021 success.
