ESPN’s Adam Caplan said on air that the Jets and Skrine have reached an agreement to make Skrine a Jet. Shrine is a tough, physical man-coverage corner who can play both inside and outside. The Jets really needed a slot corner so expect to see Skrine in the slot a lot whether the Jets sign Revis or another corner such as Chris Culliver or Tramon Williams.
Skrine, who went to Tennessee-Chattanooga, had been with the Cleveland Browns since 2011 but sources told JetsInsider that he was very much looking forward to leaving Cleveland and the uncertainty surrounding the team.
The Jets are determined to add another corner in free agency and while they have backup plans incase they don’t land Revis their focus is on Revis. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on air that the Patriots will still make one more push to re-sign Revis but the “sense in New England is that Revis will sign with the Jets.”
Stay tuned as we will continue to keep you updated as the signings come in. UPDATE: According to multiple reports the Jets will pay Skrine $25 million over four years with $13 million guaranteed.
