When the Denver Bronco acquired Dominique Cromartie-Rodgers they felt he had tremendous potential. However, like Bill Parcells used to always say, ‘potential means you haven’t done anything yet.’ According to Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post, the Broncos plan to work Rodgers-Cromartie hard to bring out his natural talent. So far Cromartie-Rodgers has been a disappointment in Arizona and Philadelphia, but his physical traits are too good to ignore. Legwold writes: ‘Rodgers-Cromartie won't turn 27 until next month and already has 77 games of experience and has been name to a Pro Bowl (in 2009). And in the sea of 30-something cornerbacks on the market, the Broncos believed Rodgers-Cromartie was the best athlete, had the kind of reach coach John Fox likes in his defensive backs and that Rodgers-Cromartie was the fastest of the group.’ Coach John Fox adds: “There's no question that (Rodgers-Cromartie) has great ability. It's our job to get the most of it out of him, just like anybody that had him before. We'll see how that goes, how hard he's willing to work and adapt to what we're teaching him." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
