2. Aaron Glenn, CB, NY Jets

Aaron Glenn played for the Jets from 1994 to 2001 and was a lockdown cornerback during his time with the team. His speed, agility, and coverage ability allowed him to effectively neutralize opposing receivers.

Glenn earned two Pro Bowl selections as a Jet and consistently matched up against the league's top wideouts. He remains one of the most revered cornerbacks in franchise history.

Glenn played a total of eight seasons in New York, where he managed to tally 24 interceptions, five forced fumbles, and six fumble recoveries. Also, despite only being counted from 1999 on, Glenn broke up 36 passes in just three seasons with the team.

Glenn played in 121 games with the Jets, starting 120 of them. He accounted for 396 tackles for almost 50 per year. From a coverage cornerback, that is a pretty solid number of tackles. Glenn made the Pro Bowl twice with the Jets in both 1997 and 1998, establishing himself as one of the premier cornerbacks of his era.

Maybe the most memorable moment for Glenn came in the 1996 season when he returned not one but two passes for touchdowns. The more impressive of which would be his 100-yard interception return for a touchdown against Miami in Week 3 of the infamous 1-15 1996 season.

Because of his longevity with the team, his big plays, and his consistency as a true number-one corner, Glenn earns a top-two spot on the list. He truly was a difference-maker in the secondary and one of the better cornerbacks of his generation.
