first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke The cornerback has heard the talk, and discussed the rumors on Philadelphia radio station WIP, which had quotes transcribed by AZCardinals.com“I’m waiting until it all plays out,” DRC said. “I ain’t getting too antsy yet.” Asked about his desire to play for the Eagles, DRC made clear he still had a fondness for the Cards because they were the team that drafted him and gave him his start. “But if they’re talking about trading me, I can’t do nothing about that, because it’s a business,” he added. This can’t really be easy for Rodgers-Cromartie, though he seems to be handling the speculation well, and was careful not to burn any bridges should a deal involving him not materialize. When Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s name was first brought up in trade rumors the idea seemed silly, at most. After all, why would the Cardinals trade a 25-year-old former Pro-Bowler who was expected to play a key role in the Cards’ revamped defense?But, if the saying is “where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” then the smoke from the DRC to Philadelphia for Kevin Kolb rumors are the equivalent of a massive forest fire.
