ESPN Boston says free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is one name the Patriots might consider should Aqib Talib "get too expensive."Beat writer Mike Reiss "thinks" the Patriots have "always thought highly of" DRC, and he's one name that could be at the "top of the list." The Philadelphia Inquirer expects Rodgers-Cromartie to command "big money" on the open market, while the Sideline View's Adam Caplan doesn't expect to see DRC back with the Eagles. Turning 27 in April, DRC checks in as our No. 7 free-agent corner in a stocked defensive backs class.

Agreed. Luckly for Tampa, talib has little leverage.

He can stay on a competitive team for less than he would like, or a bad team for less than he would like. I seriously doubt anyone will give him a big payday.

Sean SMith should be out top target , but DRC should be #2.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Saying wright is going too far. No way is he that kind of bad.

At least he made a small name for himself, whereas wright never looked any better than burnt toast.

DRC looked pretty good in that Bucs/Eagles game last season.  Other than that game,  I haven't seen him play too much.  I would guess he is a mid level guy on the available CB's list.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

How is Talib going to cost more than DRC?  Talib is a problem child punk, and his coverage is on par with DrC.

Agree.  Hard to imagine any team giving him large money.  I guess he will land somewhere, but not for anywhere near the $$$$$ he is hoping for.  Too many risks involved.

Which might make him a top tier guy in FA.If we're going after big corners, him and Rhodes would be a perfect fit.

 However, for this defensive system, I'd rather have undersized cover corners to help stop all the quick timed routes we're used to seeing in the nfcs.

I am thinking one free agent CB, one high draft pick CB,  and one later round CB.   And I think Leonard, Gorrer, Gaiter stick around for depth.

If we're playing bump and run though we need big corners.

I can see the Pats keeping Talib and getting DRC.
