New York Giants Ask Cornerback To Take Significant Pay-cut

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

Another veteran cornerback is on the market.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the New York Giants informed Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday morning that they were releasing him. 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.

The Giants' decision to cut Rodgers-Cromartie shouldn't be all that surprising.


Rodgers-Cromartie appeared in 61 games with 44 starts over four seasons after signing with the Giants as a free agent in 2014. He was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and was just named a second-team All-Pro back in 2016.

The Giants and cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie reached a contract negotiation impasse over the past week and the team ended up releasing the soon to be 32-year-old CB. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, he has 30 interceptions in 10 seasons with the Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and Giants.

Previous year was a rough one for Rodgers-Cromartie, who saw his playing time decrease, and who was suspended after clashing with the coaching staff.

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.
