The Jets came into the offseason needing to sign cornerbacks, and in one of Maccagnan’s first moves as general manager, he signed cornerback Buster Skrine from the Cleveland Browns. After being drafted in the fifth-round of the NFL Draft by the Browns, Skrine has developed into a very good slot cornerback over the past few years.

In order to sign Skrine, the Jets gave the young cornerback a four-year, $25 million contract. Out of the $25 million, $13 million is guaranteed with a $3 million signing bonus.

Skrine began starting games for the Browns in 2012, but in 2013 became a regular starter in their secondary. In 2014, Skrine would have his breakout season, as he totaled four interceptions, and 18 passes deflected.

The Jets look to be getting Skrine as he is heading into his prime, and with talented cornerbacks around him, he could become even better in 2015.
