According to Josina Anderson, veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie isn’t sweating the fact that he hasn’t found a new team yet. He told Anderson that he’s fine with waiting until training camp before putting pen to paper.nfl jerseys cheap nike
That would seem to indicate DRC is waiting for one of two things to happen: an injury to a cornerback already on a roster, or for a team to come to the realization that its current corners won’t cut it.
The Washington Redskins may already be there in the latter regard, as they met with Rodgers-Cromartie back in March, according to Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post.
One side of Washington’s defense is secure with Josh Norman. But the team traded Kendall Fuller to the Kansas City Chiefs for Alex Smith, and while it brought in Orlando Scandrick to replace him, Scandrick has mainly played in the slot in recent years.nfl nike jerseys cheap
That leaves an opening outside, one which Rodgers-Cromartie would fill nicely.nike nfl jersey cheap
The 10-year veteran isn’t coming off a great 2017 season, but the year before, he was a second-team All-Pro. Rodgers-Cromartie has made it to two Pro Bowls and has picked off 30 career passes.
Washington only has about $13.5 million in available cap space, but that gives it enough leeway to patch up its back end.
NaVorro Bowman’s NFL career hasn’t gone as expected.cheap nfl jerseys nike
At one time, Bowman appeared to be an eventual Hall of Famer in the making. But numerous injuries, including a devastating knee injury in the NFC title game in 2014, robbed him of some of his quickness.
The 30-year-old was decent for the Oakland Raiders last year, but he clearly isn’t the same player anymore. That doesn’t mean the Raiders shouldn’t bring him back, though.
In May, Raiders general manager Reggie McKensie told Scott Bair of NBC Bay Area that he would “love” for Bowman to return. It isn’t hard to see why.
Though Bowman wasn’t great in 2017, he was easily Oakland’s best linebacker. The Raiders brought in Tahir Whitehead and Derrick Johnson this offseason, but Whitehead is no world-beater and Johnson is 35.
McKensie indicated that the Raiders made Bowman an offer, but he balked, likely hoping to find another suitor willing to give him the Rod Tidwell treatment.nfl jerseys nike cheap
But it’s now July, and Bowman remains unemployed. If he’s stuck in “take what you can get” territory, as he appears to be, it makes sense for him to stay in the Bay Area.
He’ll likely do just that—right before camp opens.
