I remember being pretty excited last offseason in the possibility of picking up Antonio Cromartie from SD. I thought he had shown interest in playing in Detroit, but I can't for the life of me remember why we didn't pursue him harder. It seems like he would have been a great pick up for us and if he played well, we might not need to pursue a CB in the 2011 draft.
As great as it would be to get Peterson in the draft, it's looking like we'll slip out of the top 5 and he'll most likely be gone. Our Secondary is still very vulnerable, but I am honestly feeling like our greatest need is at LB. I know we'll have Follet and Dizon back but I don't think they have enough experience to be considered a strong core. I would love to trade or pick up a great LB free agent if any are available. I am hoping we get rid of Julian and draft someone with a lot of promise.
Does anyone think that we should have picked up Cromartie when we had the chance? I know he's not Revis but he still would have added some experience and skill to the CB position. Are there any solid CB's we can pick up through free agency?
