It’s slim pickings out there Dan Leberfeld

A lot of people are wondering if the Jets will try to bring in another cornerback, with all the injuries they have at the position.

Perhaps, but if you expect a cornerback to come in off the waiver wire, or in a trade, and be a difference-maker, that might be Pollyanna thinking.

Case-in-point, the Baltimore Ravens signing of cornerback Derek Cox today. The Ravens also have injury issues at corner.

The Ravens are Cox’s fourth team in two years (Jacksonville, San Diego, Minnesota and Baltimore).

The Chargers gave him a nice contract last year in free agency, and he was released after one season.

The Vikings released him on the cut-down to 75 this summer.

Clearly there is something amiss here.

And he was viewed by some as the best cornerback available on the street.

My point is it’s going to be hard for the Jets to find a cornerback, who is available at this juncture, who is going to help them a lot.

The Jets best hope is with the guys they have – Darrin Walls, Dee Milliner once he’s healthy, Dimitri Patterson once his suspension ends, Antonio Allen, Ellis Lankster and so forth.

Yes, I do expect them to add a corner after the final cut-down, but don’t expect that player to make a huge difference.

Teams are so hungry for good corners, they aren’t releasing them. They are holding on to them with white knuckles.
