Giants cut Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the New York Giants have asked cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromarte to take a "significant" pay cut this season. Giants will save $6.5 million by releasing him. Per Garofolo, the sides are "far apart".

It's been a insane week for Rodgers-Cromartie.

Should Oakland decide to pair a veteran ballhawk such as Rodgers-Cromartie and two talented rookie cornerbacks from the 2018 National Football League draft with Conley and Melifnowu, then Raider Nation would finally have a secondary worth getting excited about.

Rodgers-Cromartie expressed his thanks to the Giants organization on an Instagram post. He'll compete with starter Darian Thompson.

The Giants' decision to cut Rodgers-Cromartie shouldn't be all that surprising. Ogletree brings with him a $10 million cap hit this season.

Giants sources later pumped the brakes on those reports, and it's now obvious as to why.

DRC signed a five-years, $35 million contract in 2014, proving to be well worth the investment.

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.

It wouldn't at all be shocking if Big Blue selected at least one more defensive back in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.
