Report: Rodgers-Cromartie To Visit Giants Tomorrow


After a day of silence coming out of Florham Park, Adam Schefter has just tweeted that Rodgers-Cromartie will be visiting with the Giants on Sunday. Rotoworld.com also had the same information with their site crediting a NJ.com report. Rodgers-Cromartie has reportedly left the Jets facility and will visit the Giants before making a decision.

Rodgers-Cromartie is one of the few top-flight cornerbacks remaining on the market and the one who bets fits Rex Ryan’s man coverage scheme. Losing out on him, especially to the Giants, would be a tough pill to swallow for Jets fans that are getting impatient with General Manager John Idzik’s deliberate style. That hasn’t happened yet, however, and the Jets can still get their man. Rodgers-Cromartie’s agent, Eugene Parker, is one of the best in the business and is clearly playing the two New York teams against each other.

It is not a bad thing that John Idzik sticks to his plan and will not overpay, especially since this is a player who wants a long-term deal but openly contemplated retirement this year. If they cannot come to terms with Rodgers-Cromartie, the Jets can either bring in Walter Thurman III who left his visit with San Francisco without signing, go back to Antonio Cromartie and try to resign him or even wait for the draft to fill this need while attacking others in free agency.

We here at The Jet Press will continue to monitor the situation and report if there are any new developments.

    I find it remarkable and quite ironic that the same people who criticized and complained about mr t and the cap situation we were in are now complaining because the gm is not throwing money around like a shrunken sailer on leave. The guys they’re crying about aren’t coming here on one-year deals and longer-term deals will simply create problems when it comes time to resign our own ‘homegrown’ players. Idzik is taking the right approach. Put down the beers and be patient.
