Nearly all the top cornerbacks available in free agency were paid handsomely during the opening week of the NFL’s new business year. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was the exception.

Rodgers-Cromartie is currently taking visits after negotiations with the Denver Broncos fell through at the onset of free agency.

The Denver Broncos had a six-year, $54 million contract on the table for Rodgers-Cromartie to return to the team. The deal was pulled once Rodgers-Cromartie turned down the initial offer and the Broncos were able to sign Aqib Talib to a similar contract.

Rodgers-Cromartie is scheduled to meet with the New York Giants Sunday, even after the franchise signed fellow cornerback Walter Thurmond earlier in the day.

The New York Jets hosted Rodgers-Cromartie a day earlier. He left Florham Park, New Jersey without a contract from the Jets.

If the Giants can’t come to some sort of agreement with the talented cornerback, his next destination could be Cleveland, according to Alan Dell of the Bradenton Herald.

“He is in New York talking to the Jets and Giants this weekend and has an invitation to visit the Cleveland Browns. Two of these potential suitors are exciting.

“Jets head coach Rex Ryan likes to play Revis-style man press coverage and sees DRC as a Rodgers Island, if you will. If he goes to Cleveland, he plays opposite cornerback Joe Haden, and the Browns become a team to take seriously.”

The Browns are also a system-fit for Rodgers-Cromartie’s services. New Browns head coach Mike Pettine was Ryan’s right-hand man for 11 years before he left to command the Buffalo Bills’ defense. The schemes will be very similar and both teams are good fits for the cornerback.
