Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie defends Juan Castillio

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE

Philly.com: While many defensive players on the Philadelphia Eagles have criticized former defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie expressed how Castillo improved his game, and that the defense's struggles were not all on the former D-coordinator.

While several players on defense have used Castillo's ousting as an excuse to question his credentials or his late-game play-calling, Rodgers-Cromartie credited the former Eagles defensive coordinator with turning him into more of a press cornerback.

Rodgers-Cromartie defended Castillo, criticized some of his teammate's finger-pointing and said that he didn't think the Eagles needed to make a change at defensive coordinator.
