Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie scheduled to meet with Jets

The Jets parted ways with cornerback Antonio Cromartie, leaving them with a need at cornerback this offseason.

Enter Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Maybe.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Rodgers-Cromartie is scheduled to fly to meet with the Jets.

Rodgers-Cromartie ranks 12th on PFT‘s Hot 100 list of the top free agents, but wound up as the odd man out when the Broncos signed Aqib Talib and the Patriots replaced him with Darrelle Revis. That works well for the Jets as Rodgers-Cromartie is the best cornerback left on the market and would fit well on the outside of Rex Ryan’s defense. The Jets have the cap space to make a deal happen if the interest is there on both sides.

Dee Milliner is on hand at cornerback as well, which unfortunately makes it unlikely that the Jets would sign Rodgers-Cromartie, bring back Cromartie and add Carlos Rogers for a secondary built for an Abbott and Costello routine.

    Keeping it all in the family.

    A Cromartie upgrade.

  3. whiteknightblackheart says: Mar 14, 2014 4:20 PM

    Idzik is making a believer out of me. If he can beef up the pass rush too through free agency the AFC East better look out.

  4. bbjohn171 says: Mar 14, 2014 4:20 PM

    Would be a major upgrade over his cousin.

  5. orivar says: Mar 14, 2014 4:21 PM

    That would be an interesting signing.

    “rogers-cromartie’s on wallace”… “cromartie’s on wallace?” … “no, ROGERS-cromartie” … “oh, rogers then?” … “no, rogers-CROMARTIE is on wallace” … “you already said cromartie wasn’t on wallace!” … “i know, i said rogers-cromartie!” … “is it a double team?”

    AFC East better look out for what? There isn’t a team in the league that fears the Jets except maybe the Bills.

    Dominique and Antonio have the same mom. Dominique and Aaron have the same dad.

  10. badmoonrison says: Mar 14, 2014 4:34 PM

    Which Cromartie is the one with 10 kids (that we know of) out of wedlock again? Rumor has it that he didnt even know all of their names. Stay classy Cro…

  11. jpat2424 says: Mar 14, 2014 4:36 PM

    Hello Bears. How bout scheduling a visit

  12. ez4u2sa says: Mar 14, 2014 4:37 PM

    With New England signing Revis, the Jets are desperate to keep up. They’ll offer him the farm.

  13. scmems07 says: Mar 14, 2014 4:40 PM

    brady is going to love this, so will tannehill and ej for that matter.

  14. doggeatdogg says: Mar 14, 2014 4:43 PM

    I’m so confused. Can someone please do the proper chronicle of the Cromarties?

  15. ttommytom says: Mar 14, 2014 4:43 PM

    DRC does not tackle. That will not fly with Rex. He got rid of Kerry Rhodes for allegedly the same reason.

  16. nflsucker says: Mar 14, 2014 4:44 PM

    One Cromartie has all the kids, and the other has all the names.

  17. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 4:45 PM

    That’s a joke. Who fears the dolphins ? The only real threat to the patriots are the jets . Defense wins championships like the Seahawks proved . Rogers cromartie is better than a hurt cromartie that would cost 14M next year .

  18. micknangold says: Mar 14, 2014 4:54 PM

    Hey Dolphins fans, how’s Wallace and that guy from the Ravens whose name I can’t even remember because he’s so marginal treating ya? And the rest of the zillions they spent last year on other slappies? Was all that money worth it? Well, did your team at least learn its lesson about wasteful free agent spending? Oh, they’ve signed Branden Albert to a big money deal? Oh, brother. Keep bashing the Jets though, it’s good for a chuckle.

  19. jda129 says: Mar 14, 2014 4:58 PM

    This move makes no sense from a musical standpoint. Rodgers and Hammerstein in their prime would have been sweet. For my money I’d be looking closely at John Williams. I think his contributions would be epic.

  20. invoanrable1 says: Mar 14, 2014 5:00 PM

    Jets fans have no room to talk about any team……ever

  21. jackfrostlombardi says: Mar 14, 2014 5:03 PM

    They should trade for Brock Osweiller and pick up Knowshon Moreno, too. They’d have a pretty good team and restore some vigor to their rivalry with the Patriots.

  22. dlk47823 says: Mar 14, 2014 5:04 PM

    Its so funny how Pats fans think they dominate the Jets. This year, 1-1, 40-40 total score. That’s dominance…..??????

  23. luisbodega says: Mar 14, 2014 5:04 PM

    DRC is a better tackler than his cousin. If I were the Jets I would sign DRC to play CB. Bring back Antonio Cromartie but to play safety. We have a big hole at safety. Cro is tall, fast and very athletic. Let him play free safety and ball hawk. Is cover techniques are suspect at CB

  24. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 5:12 PM

    It doesn’t matter what lineman the dolphins pick up . Wilkerson,Harrison, Coples, and Richardson can handle that. And why can’t the jets say anything because they shut down great offenses like the saints?

  25. wishingtonredslur says: Mar 14, 2014 5:13 PM

    Dee Milner covers the bench.

  26. bangreggwilliams says: Mar 14, 2014 5:14 PM

    This Cromartie has an extra last name and fewer kids…seems like an upgrade for the Jets.

  27. mzim2756 says: Mar 14, 2014 5:16 PM

    Dolphin fans talking smack about the Jets, they spend 150mil in FA contracts and go 8-8 in a playoff or bust year, the Jets go 8-8 in an obvious rebuilding year and finish ahead based on tiebreakers, Tannehill is nothing special, Good chance Geno will surpass him this year, and love that dysfunctional locker room and idiot HC, but Fin fans are talking about Jets, pretty funny

  28. jetsarestacked says: Mar 14, 2014 5:19 PM

    Always get a kick out of dolphins fans. Haven’t won a playoff game since 2000!

  29. scmems07 says: Mar 14, 2014 5:27 PM


    wallace is working out pretty well, tannehill doubled his td output, threw for just under 4k yards, hartline had another productive 1k yrd year, clay was able to find room over the middle to become a playmaking TE and all of that can be credited to wallace and his ability to draw coverage, oh, and wallace did score a td in both jet games because they couldnt hold his jock strap, ellerbe switched positions to middle LB and still had over 100 tackles despite missing 2 games…..not bad at all…..just need to fix the o line which is happening very soon, and dont forget, you still have a qb who threw what…12 td’s and 21 int’s, might want to quiet down there jet fan.

  30. finsphan says: Mar 14, 2014 5:34 PM

    anyone who really believes that geno smith is going to be anything other than a 2nd or 3rd string qb in this league should really re-evaluate thier priorities. when your own coach admits that he is not the starting qb going into the 2nd year…..there is something to be said about that, and that coming from a coach who endorsed and got a tatoo of mark sanchez!!!!

  31. jetsfaninindy says: Mar 14, 2014 5:43 PM

    I would prefer Anonio tha DRC. He is familiar
    with the system. If I am not mistaken, Denver’s
    secondary couldn’t stop a nose bleed in the Super

  32. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 5:45 PM

    Even with doubling his production it didn’t help when a rookie cb picked him off twice

  33. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 5:45 PM

    In one game

  34. mzim2756 says: Mar 14, 2014 5:49 PM

    Scmems, after all that 8-8 just like the Jets

  35. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 5:52 PM

    Even with our ROOKIE qb’s horrendous stats the jets still managed to have the same record as the dolphins . Dolphin fans should not speak . Don’t forget your spot in the afc . Behind the jets and pats . We don’t even respect the bills and dolphins . That’s why we’re not referred to as a rivalry . You guys don’t keep up with the big boys in the afc east.

  36. finsphan says: Mar 14, 2014 5:56 PM

    yup, 8-8 for both teams, neither won the superbowl so it does’nt matter. dolphins had o line issues, jets have qb and passing issues. both teams blew eachother out, both teams have quality wins against good teams, both teams beat the pats, now it’s time to retool and go again next year.

  37. micknangold says: Mar 14, 2014 6:33 PM


    Way to miss my point entirely.

  38. billyswagger says: Mar 14, 2014 6:47 PM

    Um yeah… All of you who believe DRC is better than Antonio, an upgrade, you are wrong. Respectfully.

  39. sclazo says: Mar 14, 2014 7:04 PM

    LOL no one wants to play for that circus called the jets.

  40. chrisjohnston10 says: Mar 14, 2014 7:10 PM

    I am laughing my head off at the jets and fins fans going at it. LOL to the comment, “the pats and jets are the big boys in the AFC East.” Pretty sure the pats sit alone on the top of that hill haha.

  41. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 8:45 PM

    That’s why you win 1 game against the jets by 3 points because geno smith handed it to you?

  42. nyjetlife says: Mar 14, 2014 8:48 PM

    The patriots better win a Super Bowl soon because there time is passing . When Brady leaves belichick won’t be their either . Pats will never be the same

  43. jetsareballs says: Mar 14, 2014 10:31 PM

    Lol. If DRC wants to win, he’ll stay far away from the jets

  44. dlk47823 says: Mar 15, 2014 9:36 PM

    Phinfan- As a lifelong jets fan, I enjoyed the fairness and common sense of your post. well done.

  45. errolrallen says: Mar 16, 2014 11:11 PM

    People are going to see the wisdom of Jets staying out of the FA orgy. Players want big money or one year contracts, wise to not overpay or be used as a staging area for next years shenanigans. 8-8, losing only two starters, securing Folk, and getting Decker were just as important as signing glamour divas. I totally love the idea of getting talent via the draft.
