Giants Are Releasing CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers Cromartie breaks up a pass against the Eagles in Week 17

Rodgers-Cromartie and the team failed to rework his contract, which called for him to make $6.5 million in salary and a cap hit of $8.5 million.

If Rodgers-Cromartie remains in NY, it could be at safety.

Rodgers-Cromartie was open to the idea of switching positions after recording zero interceptions in 2017 just one year after snaring six, NY and the CB couldn't hammer out a pay cut from his $6.5 million salary in 2018. DRC is due $6.5 million in 2018. If Rodgers-Cromartie does not accept the pay cut - the two sides are reportedly not close - he will be released. They also considered trying him at free safety, a source told ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, moved inside to play the hard slot corner role the past two years, as Eli Apple supplanted him as a starting outside cornerback.

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. He followed up with six interceptions, which tied a career high, in 2016 and earned second-team All-Pro honors. However, he saw his status as a starter reduced during last season as he was supplanted by Eli Apple in the Giants secondary.

He apparently declined. And on Sunday, he was informed of his release. They finished just 31 against the pass and gave up an NFL-worst 32 touchdown passes.
