Aaron Glenn has been hired by the Jets as a personnel scout. He played 15 years in the league as a cornerback, his career ending with the New Orleans Saints. He actually was one of the best cornerbacks in team history, so for our younger readers, I wanted to give a look back and share how good he really was.
The Jets chose Glenn with the 12th overall pick in the 1994 draft out of Texas A&M. He was first team All-American in his senior season.
In his eight years with the New York Jets, he started all but one game which he was active for, and was terrific right from the start. He picked off 23 passes for the Green and White, returning 3 of them for TDs. Beginning in 1996, Glenn had more than one interception every year except for one, with four each in 1996 and 2000, 5 in 1997, and 6 in 1998 during the Jets run to the AFC championship game.
Not a Revis like corner, but got the job done in his own right, making the Pro Bowl 2X.
He had stops in Houston, Dallas, and Jacksonville before retiring as a New Orleans Saint after the 2008 season.
A terrific Jets player, and now a scout. Aaron Glenn.
