After re-structuring a few contracts and freeing up a few more million in cap space, the Vikings as of now have the maneuverability to pull off a last significant free agent deal should they choose.
Some fans are asking, why not Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie instead?
The free agent cornerback has been taking visits (after reportedly turning down a $54 million deal with Denver). The Vikings reportedly contacted DRC, but according to Doogie, that contact was little more than a “casual chat” and no visit is planned.
DRC will visit with the Giants, according to various reports. He also has interest from the Jets.
Even after signing Captain Munnerlyn, the Vikings probably still are in the market to add at cornerback. The draft is always a possibility.
It wouldn’t surprise me to see the Vikes bring in another cheap option at cornerback to compete with the men already on the roster. Derek Cox was signed the other day but he is not a sure thing to even make the team.
The secondary is still a work-in-progress. But I wouldn’t count on DRC being brought in to fill the remaining gap.
