Eagles insider Tim McManus is reporting that the Eagles and DRC’s agent are not negotiating a new deal at this time,
“Nothing personal against the eccentric cornerback; the Eagles are not negotiating with any players at the moment, choosing instead to focus their energies on the season at hand. They have tried to stick to the policy of no in-season contract negotiations for the past few years.”
But what would the price tag be for a player that is not a sound tackler and has not had an interception since September?
“Rodgers-Cromartie’s price tag needs to be taken into consideration. His cousin, Antonio, received a four-year, $32-million deal in 2011 from the Jets. He was right around Dominique’s current age (26) at the time. The Giants’ Antrel Rolle inked a five-year, $37 million deal in 2010. Perhaps the former Pro Bowler could end up in that ballpark.
The Eagles are projected to be well over the cap for next season, though they have a sizeable amount of cap money that they can carry over from the current campaign.”
It will be interesting to see how the Eagles handle this situation after the season ends. DRC and Asomugha both might be gone by this time next year if the Eagles really, truly, want to clean house with the roster. It would be hard to imagine the Eagles getting rid of both starting cornerbacks in the same offseason.
