Borders part of 2022 on the Chicago Bears practice squad before being promoted late in the year. He was with Arizona before that.
He has played 32 games over six NFL seasons, with six starts in his career. Borders will battle for a spot on the 53-man roster in a competitive position group with few vacancies available as we head toward the regular season. A.J. Terrell, Jeff Okudah and Mike Hughes are expected to play a major role in the cornerback corps.
