The Giants will give free agent Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie a physical on Monday.
Physicals are generally routine on free agent visits, but it sounds like this one could be the precursor to a signing. The Giants have aggressively revamped their secondary, landing Walter Thurmond and Quintin Demps while re-signing Trumaine McBride and Stevie Brown. DRC would be an impact cherry on top.
Free agents Brandon Weeden and Henry Melton will both visit the Cowboys on Monday.
The Cowboys are serious about this Weeden thing. They still don't know whether Kyle Orton will play in 2014, and gave Weeden a high grade coming out of college in 2012. Melton would be a far more impressive get for cap-strapped Dallas. Cowboys DC Rod Marinelli turned Melton into a Pro Bowler in Chicago.
The NY Daily News' Manish Mehta reports Jets coach Rex Ryan wants to sign free agent Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie "badly."
As Mehta notes, DRC is an "ideal fit" in Ryan's scheme as a press-man cover corner who can chase opposing top receivers. Rodgers-Cromartie's passion for football has long been questioned, but Rex has a knack for getting the most out of his players. DRC would be a huge upgrade on Antonio Cromartie in New York.
Free agent Jared Allen visited the Seahawks on Sunday.
Allen left is now back at home. The Seahawks are bargain hunters in free agency and likely gave Allen a number they won't budge from. Allen's market has been fairly quiet, and threatening to retire if his financial demands aren't met hasn't seemed to have helped. The Broncos moved on whey they signed DeMarcus Ware, and clubs aren't willing to break the bank on 32-year-old Allen.
Broncos GM John Elway talked up Emmanuel Sanders' versatility and move-ability when explaining when Denver targeted him in free agency.
Sanders primarily played Z and slot receiver in Pittsburgh. He'll likely focus on "Z" in Denver, and slot when Wes Welker moves on. "He can play anywhere," Elway said of Sanders. "He can play inside, he can be outside. He's explosive. Great separation skills. He can do it all." Sanders is a virtual lock for WR3 value, and could push for WR2 numbers with Peyton Manning at the helm.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Buccaneers are "open to listening to offers" for C/G Jeremy Zuttah.
Zuttah's $4.5 million base salary will be prohibitive, especially when interested clubs know the Buccaneers will likely just wind up releasing him. The Bucs' entire line took a step back last season, and GM Jason Licht has prioritized overhauling it. Zuttah, 27, has generally been a quality NFL starter.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are "lurking" in the bidding for free agent Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
In Cleveland, DRC could team with Joe Haden to give new coach Mike Pettine one of the league's most talented cornerback tandems. Rodgers-Cromartie will be in New York until Monday, where he's been meeting with the Jets and Giants. Rapoport suggested on Twitter Sunday that the holdup in talks with the Jets is whether owner Woody Johnson will be willing to pony up enough money.
The Steelers will host free agent Lance Moore on Tuesday.
It'll be Moore's first visit of free agency. He's a possible fallback option if the Steelers miss out on re-signing Jerricho Cotchery, who is visiting the Panthers on Monday. Moore, 30, is a limited-talent possession receiver.
