FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Morris Claiborne came to the New York Jets intent on being their No. 1 cornerback – and an elite player at his position.

He’s got that first goal locked down. Being mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson and Chris Harris? Well, he’s still got work to do.

“I can’t rank myself nowhere right now,” Claiborne said. “I’m not a Pro Bowler yet. Those guys are three-time, four-time Pro Bowlers. I’m working to get there, but I don’t feel like I’m far behind.”
