Well, the choice has been made by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but it wasn’t the one that we had hoped for.
“Pro Football Talk”, among other sources, are reporting that DRC has signed with our roommates at MetLife Stadium, the New York Giants. Word is that the deal is five years, worth $35 million. No word as to how much of that was guaranteed to Dominique.
Put him on the list of cornerbacks that have turned the Jets down. We have Alterraun Verner, Vontae Davis, Captain Munnerlyn, and Brandon Bronwer, among others. The hole vacated by Antonio Cromartie is still there.
So, where do the Jets go from here? Do they bring Cromartie home, as he is still available? Do they bring in another free agent still on the list, like Terrell Thomas? Or, as a member of the fan base pointed out, take to the draft and choose a corner with the number 18 pick?
It would seem to go against John Idzik’s BPA style, but at this point, it could happen.
