It keeps looking like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will join one of the New York teams, but it’s still a mystery which team he’ll choose. Rodgers-Cromartie is spending the night in New York so he can take his physical with the Giants on Monday, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter (via Twitter). However, Dan Hanzus of NFL.com, citing his colleague Ian Rapoport, claims that Rodgers-Cromartie already took a physical with the Jets. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News adds that Jets coach Rex Ryan wants to sign the player “badly” (via Twitter). Earlier this evening, Rapoport insinuated that the cornerback was narrowing his list to the two teams (via Twitter).
Rodgers-Cromartie is generally regarded as the best cornerback still available in free agency. The 27-year-old appeared in 15 games for the Broncos last season, compiling 31 total tackles and three interceptions. The former first-round pick also played for the Cardinals and Eagles.
The Browns are also trying to get Rodgers-Cromartie in for a visit, reports Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
