Giants release CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Before releasing him, the Giants had asked Rodgers-Cromartie to take a pay cut, but he declined.

After missing out on star cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Richard Sherman [VIDEO], the #New England Patriots must set their sights on veteran cornerback #Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who was recently released by the #New York Giants. He did not play in the Giants' 23-10 victory in Denver in Week 6, the Giants' first victory after their 0-5 start. No final decisions made either way but DRC and the team are far apart at this point.

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

Hill said Rodgers-Cromartie is an ideal cornerback who plays both outside and in the slot. He'll compete with starter Darian Thompson.

They also have a chance to become the first team to break the 100-points barrier in the history of the English top flight. Their visit to relegation-threated Stoke on Monday, though, has left Guardiola looking at the calendar warily.

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 does not accept the pay cut - the two sides are reportedly not close - he will be released.

A year ago was a rough one for Rodgers-Cromartie, who saw his playing time decrease, and who was suspended after clashing with the coaching staff. The 31-year-old cornerback was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2015 and was named All-Pro in 2016.

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