The New York Jets and New York Giants are currently the frontrunners to land free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but they’re not the only teams looking to make a play by signing the former Broncos defensive back.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Cleveland Browns are very interested in getting Rodgers-Cromartie to town and hopefully getting him locked up with a contract.
If one of those teams fails to sign him, he just might make his way to Cleveland, according to Alan Dell of the Bradenton (Fla.) Herald, Rodgers-Cromartie’s hometown newspaper. Dell reported Sunday that the Browns have extended an invitation to the seventh-year pro, and he’s likely to take the visit unless the Jets or Giants make him an offer he can’t refuse.
There’s really no guarantee that Rodgers-Cromartie will be leaving New York without a deal, as the Giants are giving him a physical on Monday and the Jets reportedly want him badly.
Still, if he slips through the cracks even a little bit, the Browns will be there to tug him down and see if they can finagle another great free agent signing this offseason.
