Reportedly, Joe Banner was the guy doing the dirty work of negotiating the Kevin Kolb for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie trade. However, there's no doubt that GM Howie Roseman was closely involved as well. He met the media for a bit yesterday to give his thoughts on the player the Eagles received in the deal.

"This is a Pro Bowl caliber cornerback and an exciting guy to have on our team." Roseman said, "He's got great ball skills, he's explosive, and he'll fit well with the kind of posture we're going with on defense."

He says that the Eagles have liked DRC ever since scouting him in college.

"He was a guy we really liked coming out of the draft. Obviously we evaluate all of the players in the National Football League. We saw a guy that really fit what we do. He's an explosive guy with great ball skills."

Finally, Roseman said that the team said they had DRC rated amongst the group of corners that were available in the free agent market this year.

"We did want him. We evaluated all of the corners and we put DRC in that group. We're excited to get him and we think we have a heck of a player."
