Not a lot of things went right for the Cleveland Browns in 2013, but they did have one of the better pass-defenses in the NFL. With All-Pro cornerback Joe Haden playing at an All-Pro level to go with Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward, the Browns had the eighth-best pass D in the league.

They've already replaced Ward with Donte Whitner, who's much better in coverage. They also could be targeting another lockdown corner to pair with Haden. According to Mary Kay Calbot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns may be bring in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in for a visit:

The Browns have reportedly invited Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Cleveland for a free agent visit, but it remains to be seen if the two New York teams will let him out of the Big Apple.

Rodgers-Cromartie spent the weekend in a New York state of mind, visiting with the Jets on Saturday and the Giants on Sunday. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets coach Rex Ryan wants Rodgers-Cromartie badly, but he's scheduled to huddle with the Giants again on Monday.

Rodgers-Cromartie will take a physical with the Giants on Monday. He already had one done with the Jets. DRC has six interceptions and 36 pass deflections over the past two seasons.
