New York Giants tie up Rodgers-Cromartie on five-year deal

Published Add your comment

The New York Giants today sealed a deal for cornerback, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Per reports, the deal extends five years and will be a blow to city rivals the New York Jets who had been interested in the former Denver Broncos man.

Rodgers-Cromartie spent just a single season with the Broncos but helped them to the Super Bowl with 31 combined tackles and three interceptions in 15 appearances.

The Giants will be pleased to have found a solution to their issues at cornerback with Rodgers-Cromartie likely to form a formidable partnership with Antrel Role, but his departure from the free agency market will be a worry for the Jets' as the market continues to dwindle. 

With the franchise only rumored to have had $11 million available in cap space it will be interesting to see the exact details of the deal first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Rodgers-Cromartie has previously spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.
