Chris Crocker-DB- Falcons Mar. 6 - 1:29 pm et

The Steelers hosted free agent safety Chris Crocker Thursday.

Crocker can hit, but gave up a lot of big plays in Atlanta. He has been a starter in Atlanta and Cleveland the last three years. Crocker has been offered a contract by the Texans.

Maybe the thought that Crocker would visit Houston helped Demps to sign. I'd like both on roster. Didn't I see that Glenn Earl had been tendered?

I believe Earl is an unrestricted free agent, therefore not eligible for a tender.

I think that the Texans are interested in Crocker because he could provide depth at both safety spots.

Crocker update:

Free agent S Chris Crocker, who met with the Steelers Thursday, also has visits scheduled with the Titans and Broncos.

"Let's hope I don't have to make those trips," Crocker said. He apparently wants to play in Pittsburgh or Houston. The Texans have an offer on the table.

That doesn't sound good for his prospects of coming to Houston... I mean, to me that sounds like all Pittsburgh has to do is offer more money. Not that losing out on him is a huge deal - I just think he'd add valuable depth. I guess we start going after Glenn Earl a little more aggressively if Crocker doesn't work out? I like Earl more anyway - I'm just concerned about him coming back from that injury.

If the only spots he's considering are Pittsburgh & Houston, we should be able to give him the better deal. Pittsburgh is up against the cap and they just re-upped Rothlisberger to a big money deal.

Except playing next to Troy Polamalu can be a little more exciting than playing next to CC Brown.

According to RotoWorld.com, and NFL Network Chris Crocker signed with the Dolphins Friday.

Quote:
Dolphins signed S Chris Crocker to a one-year, $1.15 million contract. NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports the deal includes $300,000 guaranteed.

Crocker adds competition for Yeremiah Bell and Keith Davis at strong safety. He could also see some action on the free side if Jason Allen fails to impress in training camp. Ideally, Allen will be the Week 1 starter and establish himself as something of a building block in the secondary.
