Giants Are Releasing CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Prior to deciding to release him, the Giants had asked Rodgers-Cromartie to take a pay cut but he declined. There's been talk around moving him to safety, but there's a chance that he explores the market elsewhere. Giants will save $6.5 million by releasing him.

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

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.

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. He was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and was just named a second-team All-Pro back in 2016.

The 2017 season was a hard one for the 10-year pro who didn't have an interception and was suspended for one game by then-coach Ben McAdoo for leaving practice without permission.

With Rodgers-Cromartie's release, the Giants will now be looking for added reinforcements in free agency and the draft to beef up a secondary which struggled mightily last season.

In 153 career games, Rodgers-Cromartie has recorded 439 tackles (382 solo), 2.5 sacks, six forced fumbles, 145 passes defensed, 30 interceptions and six touchdowns.
