It might be a Big Apple (well, East Rutherford) showdown for the services of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Rodgers-Cromartie completed weekend visits with both the New York Jets and New York Giants and will continue talks with both teams, according to two sources informed of the cornerback's visits.
Rapoport added that the Cleveland Browns could also be in the mix, and are currently attempting to gauge Rodgers-Cromartie's value. No visit is planned at this time.
Both teams are in need of a No. 1 cornerback and Rodgers-Cromartie is the best remaining cover man on the market. The Jets watched former franchise star Darrelle Revis join the New England Patriots last week, while the Giants failed in their attempt to land Alterraun Verner, who replaced Revis in Tampa.
Rex Ryan's defense is dependent on strong cornerback play, and the coach badly wanted to reunite with Revis.Rodgers-Cromartie isn't on Revis' level, but he would adequately fill what's easily the biggest hole on the Jets' defense.
