Jets corner Buster Skrine thinks this year's secondary will not only be an improvement over last year's but that the group also has the potential to stand out.
"This is my seventh year in the NFL and this is one of the most aggressive groups I've been around - and confident," Skrine said, according to Newsday.
The Jets fired secondary coach Joe Danna after a tough 2016 and replaced him with Dennard Wilson, a former NFL defensive back. Along with Wilson's arrival, the Jets have brought in Morris Claiborne to help sure up the defense.
"Dennard Wilson is one of the best coaches I've ever been around," Skrine said. "Me and [Claiborne] really appreciate our coach because no matter how old you are, or how much you've done, football is about being consistent. And a lot of guys take it for granted. Him being in our DB room, he gets the best out of us."
A year ago, the Jets allowed 25.6 points per game, fifth worst in the entire league. Skrine said he believes that a turnaround is on the horizon.
"Everybody knows that our team plays man - mano y mano," Skrine said. "So, if you can do that, we can play with any team."
