To make room for former Pro Bowl cornerback Ty Law, the Jets waived another former Pro Bowl cornerback, Justin Miller, who went across the pond (player speak for Pro Bowl) at the end of the 2007 season. He was on injured reserve during the 2007 season.
Teams will have until 4 p.m. Wednesday to claim Miller and with teams such as Cleveland, New Orleans and New England in the market for cornerbacks, it would hardly be a surprise to see Miller claimed.
Asked if he feared Miller being claimed by one of the Jets opponents, New York coach Eric Mangini said: “He’s an excellent returner. He’s got a really bright future ahead of him. He’s going to be a free agent here at the end of the year for us. I really hope that he continues to develop along the path that he developed. Justin and I spent a lot of time together. I like him a lot personally. I really wish him nothing but the best.”
