Seahawks apparently interested in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

NFL: New York Giants at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting on Monday that the Seattle Seahawks are showing significant interest in free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

The Seahawks currently have Shaquill Griffin, Byron Maxwell, and Justin Coleman as their expected starting three corners, with Neiko Thorpe, Tre Flowers, Alex Carter, and the recently re-signed Trovon Reed as depth. Making a move for Rodgers-Cromartie would not necessarily mean that they have doubts about Maxwell, once you note that the depth is perhaps a little thin right now, especially with Mike Tyson moving back over to safety.

Rodgers-Cromartie was drafted 16th overall by the Arizona Cardinals in 2008, making Pro Bowl appearances in 2009 and 2015. He has also played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos, and most recently the last four seasons with the New York Giants. Rodgers-Cromartie recorded six interceptions in 2016, but saw his role decreased last season at the age of 31, making six starts in 15 games with no picks.

The Giants were apparently looking to move DRC to safety this year, before ultimately releasing him in March to save $6.5 million against the cap.
