Jets to sign CB Morris Claiborne

As a result, the Ravens have signed free agent cornerback Brandon Carr to a four-year contract. According to ESPN, Carr essentially received a one-year deal that could expand to a four-year, $24 million contract if all the options are exercised.

NY also brought back defensive tackle Mike Pennel on a one-year deal, SNY reported. Presumably, the guarantees won't impact their ability to dump Clairborne after a year if it's a multi-year deal.

Though he started 43 games in five seasons, he nabbed just four interceptions and defended just 26 passes. Carr holds the longest active streak of consecutive starts among National Football League cornerbacks with 144. Carr's consistent availability was likely one of the most appealing factors to the Ravens.

The news of Carr's signing comes after a report earlier in the day that the Ravens were interested in Claiborne. That could be a big focus of the draft, but Adam Schefter is reporting that the Jets are about to sign former Cowboys' CB Morris Claiborne.




But there's a major caveat: Claiborne's injury history.

A week after officially releasing Darrelle Revis, the Jets have found themselves a new cornerback.

Signing Carr does not eliminate the need for a young corner in the draft, but it will help to make the Ravens secondary much better in the short term.
