The Denver Broncos cut cornerback Champ Bailey earlier this week and that has many fans wondering what will be next for the other cornerbacks the team both have on roster and those they could possibly lose this upcoming week in free agency.
According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos are looking at making a serious attempt to bring back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this offseason and may pony up to his price tag.
Per the Denver Post:
Rodgers-Cromartie played last season with a one-year contract worth $5 million. After letting his mind publicly wander late last season toward retirement, Rodgers-Cromartie has made it clear that he will keep playing. He is expected to command a multiyear contract that averages $6 million to $7 million per season. The Broncos will make a serious attempt to re-sign him.
There are other cornerback options out there on the market for Denver but there’s a good chance that their inside track with Rodgers-Cromartie will go a long way in making a deal with him easier than with others. He’s not a lock to return, but the Broncos are clearly going to make an attempt that sees such a thing happen.
