New York Jets set to fill Cromartie void with cousin

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could well become a New York Jets player as earlier as tonight after it was revealed he is to meet with the Jets this evening.

The Jets released his cousin Antonio Cromartie this week and they are now on the look out for a replacement cornerback, with Dominique said to be their favourite target.

It would be quite a move for the Jets to fill the void with the cousin of the player they just released, but it's understood that it wasn't their first idea in mind.

Former corner Darrelle Revis was on the market this week, but once he signed a one-year $12 million deal with AFC East rivals New England Patriots, Rogers-Cromartie suddenly became the main focus.

There was never any real talk that Revis would actually return whereas the Cromartie move is certainly at an advanced stage.

The former Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals defensive back is due to board a plane today to make his way to New York for the evening when he will sit down with Jets personnel.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter explained on Twitter, "Broncos fee-agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is scheduled to fly to New York tonight to meet with the Jets, per team source."
