Miller Closing in on a Starting CB Job?

From: Pro Football Weekly

The Jets recently offered a not-so-subtle clue as to who their starting cornerback will be opposite Darrelle Revis. More specifically, they clued us in with who it won’t be — namely, David Barrett. Barrett has been engaged in a spirited battle for the job with a host of others, but he reportedly agreed to take a pay cut from $3.6 million to $2.4 million. In all likelihood, the team told him he’d be cut if he didn’t accept the pay reduction.

Justin Miller appears to be in the pole position for the starting job that Barrett is seeking. The most athletic of the candidates, Miller is coming back from a blown-out knee that cost him all but two games of his 2007 season. The fourth-year player has impressed throughout the OTAs and training camp, but we hear the club wanted to see how he held up in an actual game before putting too much stock in his offseason performances. Still, there’s a logjam of adequate corners on the team.
