New York Giants release Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

The New York Giants have cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Janoris Jenkins remains the only proven cornerback on the Giants, with troubled Eli Apple still on the roster and potentially slated to replace Rodgers-Cromartie in the lineup.

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

This is not a surprise, because Rodgers-Cromartie's salary in 2018 is on the books for $6.48 million, with a salary cap hit of $8.5 million. They also considered trying him at free safety, a source told ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

On the same day that the Giants released cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison jumped to his defense on Twitter, while seemingly calling out other teammates.

US House Speaker Ryan denounces Trump metals tariffs
Republican lawmakers are not happy about President Donald Trump's import tariffs on steel and aluminum. A WTO decision wouldn't halt USA tariffs, but rather authorize retaliation from trading partners.

As a result, Rodgers-Cromartie had one of his least productive seasons in 2017 failed to record a single interception the entire year for just the second time in his 10-year National Football League career.

The two-time Pro Bowler started six games for the Giants last season and had the worst statistical season of his career.

He made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and was named Second-Team All-Pro in 2016.

Rodgers-Cromartie was a first-round draft pick (No. 16 overall) of the Arizona Cardinals in 2008. They finished just 31 against the pass and gave up an NFL-worst 32 touchdown passes.
