The way he sees it, there really wasn’t any need for him to get traded to the Eagles anyway. He thought the Cardinals already had their quarterback.
“I was always a [John] Skelton fan even when I was there,” Rodgers-Cromartie said via Bob Grotz of the Delaware County Times. “I was pulling for the guy. I know what he’s capable of doing. I know he can run this offense real good. And he does have a big arm.”
Skelton didn’t play well last week. If he somehow helped the Cardinals pull off a second straight win as a starter, Kolb wouldn’t look so good in comparison.
Rodgers-Cromartie, meanwhile, doesn’t sound so thrilled about his new role in Philly. He wants to play on the outside, rather than in the slot where he’s clearly uncomfortable.
“Am I mad? Yeah,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “I would like to be outside.”
DRC still sounds a little salty that he got dealt in the first place.
“They know what they had,” Rodgers-Cromartie said.
Yes. Perhaps they did.
