DRC has been an underachiever thus far in his NFL career. Many within the league believe that Rodgers-Cromartie has No. 1 cornerback talent.

However, he has not produced like a No. 1 corner would. With his move, he could be mentored by Champ Bailey, who many believe will be in the Hall of Fame one day.

He spent the last two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was acquired by the Eagles and a 2012 second-round draft pick in a July 28th, 2011 trade with the Arizona Cardinals.

Kevin Kolb went to the Cardinals in the deal.

Rodgers-Cromartie was the Eagles’ starting left corner during the 2012 season. He had 51 tackles. He also had three interceptions and 16 pass deflections.
