NFL Network first reported the Giants' request of a pay cut to keep Rodgers-Cromartie in blue. According to Rich Hill of PatsPulpit.com, the Patriots must take advantage of Rodgers-Cromartie, who was released by the Giants to save $6.5 million in salary cap. He would start in only six games last season, racking up 31 tackles and zero interceptions. He was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and was just named a second-team All-Pro back in 2016.
DRC signed a five-years, $35 million contract in 2014, proving to be well worth the investment.
The Giants have informed veteran Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie that he will be released, the Daily News has confirmed.
Rodgers-Cromartie allegedly had broken some team rules late the previous week in practice, before arguing with McAdoo on the sideline over playing time that Sunday in a home game against the Chargers.
With Rodgers-Cromartie scheduled to make $6.5 million, the Giants opted for a cost-saving move for a player that was reduced to nickel cornerback duties last season.
Rodgers-Cromartie joins a free agent cornerback class that also includes Trumaine Johnson, Malcolm Butler, Morris Claiborne, Bashaud Breeland, Prince Amukamara, E.J. Gaines and Patrick Robinson. Rodgers-Cromartie will be the most accomplished slot cornerback on the free agent market, and that is a position of need for the Colts.
