Veteran CB hits market, Giants release Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

The New York Giants cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday.

Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, was entering the final year of a five-year, $35 million contract.

The 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie, who was the 16th overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2008 NFL Draft, was named to the Pro Bowl for the Giants in 2015. He was set to have an $8.5 million cap hit in 2018, and the Giants will save $6.5 million on their salary cap by releasing him. They also considered trying him at free safety, a source told ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

The two-time Pro Bowler started six games for the Giants last season and had the worst statistical season of his career.

Rodgers-Cromartie is a 10-year National Football League veteran who played for the Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and the Giants, where he spent the last four seasons of his career.

Rodgers-Cromartie allegedly had broken some team rules late the previous week in practice, before arguing with McAdoo on the sideline over playing time that Sunday in a home game against the Chargers.

If Rodgers-Cromartie's asking price is reasonable, I think he would be a great fit in the Colts' secondary. "I'm just glad that they didn't let this turn them from me and they accepted me and I'm just back working, man".

It's possible the Giants decide to cut ties with the veteran cornerback and save a nice chunk of change, despite him being a fan-favorite.
