Morris Claiborne, CB
The days of the Broncos signing veteran has-beens are hopefully dead and gone.
No more Tramaine Brock types or Adam Jones types, please.
Morris Claiborne looked like a possible first-round bust before reviving his career with the New York Jets, and he’s had a couple of really nice seasons in a row with 14 pass breakups in 2018 and eight pass breakups in 2017 along with three interceptions.
While he was with Dallas, Claiborne struggled to stay healthy, but he’s stayed on the field and he’s been effective the past couple of years.
Many feel like he will return to the Jets, but the Broncos’ cornerback situation is really interesting right now.
Is Chris Harris coming back? Is Kareem Jackson playing more safety than corner?
Will Isaac Yiadom step up?
The Broncos have huge question marks at this position and Claiborne — who is still just 29 — could sign a two-year deal and help the team for a bit while also allowing them to play someone like Jackson where they want to and use Bryce Callahan in the slot with Harris hopefully returning as another outside guy.
We saw firsthand last year how important depth at this position is.
Right now, if one injury happened to the Broncos’ cornerback position, the depth would be seriously tested. Adding a veteran like Claiborne could end up being a wise decision.
