Veteran CB hits market, Giants release Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Veteran CB hits market, Giants release Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

He apparently declined. And on Sunday, he was informed of his release. 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. Get the app and get the game. He would have counted $8.5 million against the salary cap in 2018, and the Giants will save $6.5 million by releasing him.

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. The team had also been contemplating shifting him from cornerback to safety for next season. He followed up with six interceptions in 2016 and earned second-team All-Pro honours.

It will be interesting to see how Harrison's comments that "52 other players who should be asked to do the same thing" as Rodgers-Cromartie - referencing being asked to take a pay cut - plays in a locker room that became divided amid a disastrous 3-13 2017 season. The two-time Pro Bowler has played cornerback his entire 10-year career, starting on the outside early in his career before being shifted inside to the slot the past two seasons.

Rodgers-Cromartie is a 10-year veteran whose spent time with the Cardinals, Eagles, Broncos and Giants. They finished just 31 against the pass and gave up an NFL-worst 32 touchdown passes.
