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.
