The 27-year-old played the best football of his career with the Dallas Cowboys in 2016 before going down with a groin injury in Week 8. He notched 26 tackles, five pass deflections, and one interception in seven games.
Claiborne has been a member of the Cowboys for his entire five-year career after being drafted sixth overall by the team in 2012.
Claiborne will likely be asked to start at cornerback for the Jets opposite Buster Skrine.
