Giants To Release Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Giants To Release Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Rodgers-Cromartie expressed his thanks to the Giants organization on an Instagram post.

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. They apparently were far enough apart that the Giants chose to release the 10-year veteran.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Saturday night that the Giants asked Rodgers-Cromartie to take a pay cut.

The Giants have released Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie. They also considered trying him at free safety, a source told ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

The Browns are thought to be considering drafting a quarterback with one of their first-round picks. In his four-year career, he's registered 400 receptions for 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns.

On the same day that the Giants released cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison jumped to his defense on Twitter, while seemingly calling out other teammates.

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.

He earned his second career Pro Bowl nod - first with the Giants - in 2015. He had tied a career-high with six in 2016.
