Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Jamel Dean, CB, Buccaneers. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Buccaneers (4 years, $52 million)

    Jamel Dean is an excellent cornerback with a bright future ahead of him at the age of 26. He was sorely missed in the playoff loss to the Cowboys.

  2. Byron Murphy, CB, Cardinals. Age: 25.
    Signed with Vikings (2 years, $22 million)

    Byron Murphy is a talented cornerback who somehow is only 25. He missed eight games last year, but missed just two other contests in his career.

  3. James Bradberry, CB, Eagles. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Eagles (3 years, $38 million)

    James Bradberry had a down year with the Giants, yet he rebounded spectacularly with the Eagles in 2022. He was a true shutdown cornerback across from Darius Slay, another shutdown corner.

  4. Marcus Peters, CB, Ravens. Age: 30.
    Signed with Raiders

    Marcus Peters is a stellar cornerback. He just turned 30, but he should still have one or two more great seasons remaining in the tank.

  5. Sean Murphy-Bunting, CB, Buccaneers. Age: 26.
    Signed with Titans (1 year, $5 million)

    Sean Murphy-Bunting is an excellent slot cornerback, but he’s had trouble staying healthy recently. He’s missed 12 games in the past two years.

  6. Jonathan Jones, CB, Patriots. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Patriots (2 years)

    Jonathan Jones is a talented cornerback who can play well outside and in the slot. The only downside is that he’ll turn 30 during the second year of his contract.

  7. Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Raiders. Age: 27.
    Signed with Ravens (1 year)

    Rock Ya-Sin hasn’t played a full season in his career, missing 10 games in the past two years. It’s a shame because he’s a talented cornerback.

  8. Cameron Sutton, CB, Steelers. Age: 28.
    Signed with Lions (3 years, $33 million)

    Cameron Sutton is coming off an excellent year despite not having T.J. Watt assisting him by rushing the passer for half the season.

  9. Shaq Griffin, CB, Jaguars. Age: 28.
    Signed with Texans

    Shaq Griffin is coming off a down year because of a back injury, but he was a solid cornerback beforehand. He’s young enough to rebound.

  10. Patrick Peterson, CB, Vikings. Age: 33.
    Signed with Steelers (2 years)

    Patrick Peterson had some poor moments in recent years, but he did very well to bounce back last season. Peterson was great, but there’s a good chance he could regress now that he’s 33.

  11. Jason Verrett, CB, 49ers. Age: 32.
    Jason Verrett is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL when healthy. Unfortunately, the “when healthy” part is extremely rare. Verrett missed all of 2022.

  12. Emmanuel Moseley, CB, 49ers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Lions (1 year, $6 million)

    Emmanuel Moseley is a quality slot cornerback, though he tore his ACL in early October.

  13. Bradley Roby, CB, Saints. Age: 31.
    Bradley Roby has been an incredibly inconsistent receiver throughout his career. He’s coming off a down year, so perhaps that means he’ll bounce back in 2023.

  14. Bryce Callahan, CB, Chargers. Age: 31.
    Bryce Callahan used to be a stellar slot cornerback, but constant injuries have weighed down his career.

  15. Troy Hill, CB, Rams. Age: 32.
    Troy Hill returned from his one-year hiatus with the Rams to perform well while on the field. However, Hill has missed five games in each of the past two seasons.

  16. Duke Shelley, CB, Vikings. Age: 26.
    Signed with Raiders

    Minnesota found something in Duke Shelley late in the year. He’s young, but undersized, so it remains to be seen if he can continue his solid play.

  17. Eli Apple, CB, Bengals. Age: 28.
    Signed with Dolphins

    Eli Apple tends to be a feast-or-famine player. He was great during the 2021 Super Bowl run, but struggled more this past year.

  18. Ronald Darby, CB, Broncos. Age: 29.
    Ronald Darby is a talented cornerback, but he can’t stay healthy. He’s coming off a torn ACL.
