Giants release CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Giants release CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

With Rodgers-Cromartie scheduled to make $6.5 million, the Giants opted for a cost-savings move for a player that was reduced to nickel cornerback duties last season. If the Giants cut him with a June 1 designation, they would save $6.5 million on this year's cap - money they can use heading into free agency and beyond.

Roughly 48 hours after requesting he take a "significant" pay cut, the New York Giants terminated the contract of veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie due to a negotiation deadlock. The New York Giants reportedly asked corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to do the same.

Rodgers-Cromartie joins a free agent cornerback class that also includes Trumaine Johnson, Malcolm Butler, Morris Claiborne, Bashaud Breeland, Prince Amukamara, E.J. Gaines and Patrick Robinson. Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, moved inside to play the hard slot corner role the past two years, as Eli Apple supplanted him as a starting outside cornerback.

The 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie started five of 15 games last season and failed to record an interception for the second time in his career.

The bill left only non-teacher staff eligible to participate, such as administrators, guidance counselors, librarians and coaches. It also creates a so-called "guardian" program that enables teachers and other school employees to carry handguns.


Rodgers-Cromartie has 30 career interceptions but had none in 2017 after matching his career high with six in 2016.

ESPN first reported Rodgers-Cromartie's imminent release.
