2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

LANDOVER, MD - JANUARY 01: Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie /

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie instantly became one of the most coveted free agent cornerbacks after his release from the Giants. Will the Colts make a play for him?

The Giants released Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after he reportedly refused to take a pay cut to stay in New York. Rodgers-Cromartie will be the most accomplished slot cornerback on the free agent market, and that is a position of need for the Colts.

Like most of the Giants’ players Rodgers-Cromartie didn’t have a career year in 2017, but he was still solid. He’s only one year removed from playing at an All-Pro level in 2016 where he picked off 6 passes with 21 pass breakups.

Rodgers-Cromartie has a unique blend of size (6′ 2″ 183 pounds) and quickness that allows him to cover all types of wide receivers. He will be 32 before the 2018 season begins, but I believe he still has a few years of high level play left in him.

If Rodgers-Cromartie’s asking price is reasonable, I think he would be a great fit in the Colts’ secondary.
