New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick does not put much stock into the top cornerback role.
Some could argue that is evident, considering what has transpired with the last couple of top corners for the team. Belichick traded Stephon Gilmore to the Carolina Panthers last October. And J. C. Jackson left the team via free agency in March.
So New England is now looking for that top corner once again in training camp.
There are several potential candidates that could emerge and take on that role. Jalen Mills and Jonathan Jones are two names in particular that have been mentioned over the course of camp.
