Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

1. Jaylon Johnson, CB, Bears. Age: 25.
Re-signed with Bears (4 years, $76 million)

Jaylon Johnson was one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL last year, and he’s only 25, so there’s still room for growth. The only downside is that he seems to get injured often.

2. L'Jarius Sneed, CB, Chiefs. Age: 27.
Franchised by Chiefs

L’Jarius Sneed is a No. 1 lockdown cornerback. Only 27, he should be able to perform on an extremely high level throughout the duration of his next contract.

3. Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Bengals. Age: 29.
Signed with Titans (3 years, $36 million)

Chidobe Awuzie has been a great cover corner for the Bengals, though he’s coming off a bit of a down year.

4. Kendall Fuller, CB, Redskins. Age: 29.
Signed with Dolphins (2 years, $16.5 million)

Washington’s secondary was a disaster in 2023, but Kendall Fuller was the only bright spot at cornerback.

5. Kenny Moore, CB, Colts. Age: 29.
Re-signed with Colts (3 years, $30 million)

Kenny Moore has been an excellent slot cornerback for a while, but he will be 30 soon.

6. Tre'Davious White, CB, Bills. Age: 29.
Signed with Rams (1 year, $8.5 million)

Tre’Davious White is an incredibly talented cornerback, but injuries have ravaged his career. In the past couple of seasons, he’s had a torn ACL and a torn Achilles. It feels like the Bills are selling low by cutting him, but White may never be the same player again.

7. Sean Murphy-Bunting, CB, Titans. Age: 27.
Signed with Cardinals (3 years, $17.5 million)

Sean Murphy-Bunting was missed in Tampa Bay last year as a capable slot cornerback.

8. Adoree Jackson, CB, Giants. Age: 28.

Adoree Jackson has been a talented cornerback for many years, but he’s coming off a down season.

9. Stephon Gilmore, CB, Cowboys. Age: 33.

Stephon Gilmore is no longer the elite, shutdown cornerback he once was, but he still played at a high level this past season.

10. Xavien Howard, CB, Dolphins. Age: 31.

Xavien Howard was once known as one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL, but he’s coming off two down years, including a dreadful 2023. He’s now 31, so his best days are almost certainly behind him.

11. Darious Williams, CB, Jaguars. Age: 31.
Signed with Rams (3 years)

The Jaguars were woeful versus the pass last year, so it’s a bit odd that they would release their top cornerback. Williams, however, turns 31 soon, so he could regress in the near future.

12. Myles Bryant, CB, Patriots. Age: 26.

Myles Bryant performed well out of the slot for the Patriots last year.

13. Keisean Nixon, CB, Packers. Age: 27.
Re-signed with Packers (3 years, $18 million)

Keisean Nixon is a decent slot cornerback and a dynamic kick returner.

14. Emmanuel Moseley, CB, Lions. Age: 28.
Re-signed with Lions (1 year)

Emmanuel Moseley is a quality slot cornerback, but he barely played last year due to injuries.

15. Antonio Hamilton, CB, Cardinals. Age: 31.

Antonio Hamilton began 2023 as a backup, but emerged as Arizona’s top cornerback, though that’s not saying much.

16. Steven Nelson, CB, Texans. Age: 31.

Steven Nelson rebounded from a down year with the Eagles to two solid seasons in Houston. His age is becoming a concern, however.

17. Shaq Griffin, CB, Panthers. Age: 29.
Signed with Vikings

Shaq Griffin has enjoyed his ups and downs throughout his career. He struggled in Houston for the most part, but had some strong performances last year.

18. Michael Davis, CB, Chargers. Age: 29.
Signed with Redskins (1 year)

Michael Davis had a solid 2022 campaign, but his level of play dropped off last year.

19. Jeff Okudah, CB, Falcons. Age: 25.
Signed with Texans (1 year)

Jeff Okudah has lots of talent as the former No. 3 pick, but he was benched late last year after a strong start.

20. Isaac Yiadom, CB, Saints. Age: 28.
Signed with 49ers

A former third-round pick, Isaac Yiadom was a journeyman but played well as a starting cornerback in the second half of last year.

21. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Rams. Age: 29.

Ahkello Witherspoon has had a very inconsistent career with some great seasons and some very down years.

22. Levi Wallace, CB, Steelers. Age: 29.
Signed with Steelers (1 year)

Levi Wallace has gotten worse since his early days in Buffalo, but he can still be a serviceable starting cornerback.

23. Ronald Darby, CB, Ravens. Age: 30.
Signed with Jaguars (2 years, $10 million)

Ronald Darby is a good player when healthy, but has severe problems staying on the field.

24. Avonte Maddox, CB, Eagles. Age: 28.
Re-signed with Eagles

Avonte Maddox is a fine slot cornerback when healthy, but he has dealt with numerous injuries lately.

25. Cameron Sutton, CB, Lions. Age: 29.

Cameron Sutton had some struggles in 2023, but was released because a warrant for his arrest for alleed domestic battery by strangulation was issued.
