Giants Are Releasing CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Giants Asked Rodgers-Cromartie to Take Pay Cut

Fantasy Football Breaking News

Rodgers-Cromartie will be the most accomplished slot cornerback on the free agent market, and that is a position of need for the Colts.

The Giants have informed veteran Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie that he will be released, the Daily News has confirmed.

If he's willing to give up $3 million of his contract to lower his cap-hit to $3.5 million, the Giants might consider retaining one of the league's top slot-corner.

Rodgers-Cromartie's release comes on the heels of the Giants cutting punter Brad Wing on Saturday, which saved Big Blue $1.025 million in cap space.

Rodgers-Cromartie was open to the idea of switching positions after recording zero interceptions in 2017 just one year after snaring six, NY and the CB couldn't hammer out a pay cut from his $6.5 million salary in 2018.

He made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and was named Second-Team All-Pro in 2016.

Rodgers-Cromartie, a first-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2008 NFL Draft, signed with the Giants as a free agent in 2014.

In his four seasons with the Giants, DRC recorded 160 tackles, 11 interceptions, 47 pass breakups, three forced fumbles, 1.5 sacks and a touchdown.

Rodgers-Cromartie last season was suspended in Week 6 for walking out on then-coach Ben McAdoo after being told he'd be inactive for that weekend's game in Denver, with the team at 0-5.
