Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been a starting CB in this league. In fact, he made a pro bowl as a starting CB in this league, so when he fills in for Asante Samuel later today, it should be pretty familiar for him. More specifically, it should be a lot more familiar for him than the slot position they were trying him in earlier this season.
"Listen, that's where he's played over the years," Andy Reid said this week. "We worked him as an inside player and I thought he was getting better every week with that, but his natural spot, where he feels the most comfortable is on the outside. He's looked good; he's done a nice job. He doesn't have a problem doing it."
As we said earlier this week, this is very likely to be the starting CB tandem we see next season. The Eagles will likely trade or release the very expensive Asante Samuel and go with Nnamdi Asomugha and the very cheap DRC for next season.
