Free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie told ESPN's Josina Anderson he is in "no rush" to sign.
"Teams told me to wait til training camp," Rodgers-Cromartie told Anderson. "I can sign...but I will wait." Released by the Giants in March, Rodgers-Cromartie quickly met with the Redskins and Saints, but his market went cold after that. Still a solid player, he should find a team eventually.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie informed her he doesn't plan to sign with a team until "April sometime."

Rodgers-Cromartie quickly visited the Redskins after his release from the Giants this past week, but he evidently didn't like the offer and is prepared to wait it out. There are whispers the Redskins plan to up the offer to entice DRC. The 32-year-old (next month) may wait until after April's draft to pick a team.
Mar 16 - 9:33 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is visiting the Redskins on Tuesday.

If he does not sign with Washington, he is expected to visit the Saints after that. After trading Kendall Fuller and with Bashaud Breeland headed to free agency, the Redskins could certainly use some help at corner.
Mar 13 - 9:39 AM

Giants released CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

The move saves New York $6.5 million. The Giants asked him to take a pay cut, but the 31-year-old decided he would rather test the market. Rodgers-Cromartie clashed with coaches—all of whom are now fired—last season, but showed well when given the opportunity, earning a positive grade from Pro Football Focus. 2016 first-round CB Eli Apple spent most of last year in the doghouse but DRC's release suggests he's back on even ground with the organization. Rodgers-Cromartie, who matched a career-high with six interceptions in 2016, joins a loaded free agent cornerback class featuring Trumaine Johnson, Kyle Fuller, Aaron Colvin and Malcolm Butler, among others.
Mar 11 - 11:15 AM

According to ESPN's Jordan Raanan, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's future with the Giants "remains uncertain."

Rodgers-Cromartie's 2018 salary counts $8.5 million against the salary cap, which "isn't going to work" for the Giants. Per Raanan, if DRC does not accept a "significant pay cut," he'll be released. Despite his age—he turns 32 next month—Rodgers-Cromartie should garner plenty of interest if he hits the open market. A decision on DRC should be coming in the next few days.
Mar 11 - 9:23 AM's Mike Garofolo reports the Giants have asked Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to take a "significant" pay cut.

Per Garofolo, the sides are "far apart." DRC is due $6.5 million in 2018. Perhaps the Giants will allow him to gauge outside interest during the "legal tampering" period before making a final decision. If Rodgers-Cromartie remains in New York, it could be at safety.
Mar 10 - 4:42 PM

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz reports the Giants are not moving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to safety at this time.

Last week, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Rodgers-Cromartie would move to safety, but Schwartz writes the report was "news to the Giants coaches and front office personnel who would know about such a move." Schwartz adds Rodgers-Cromartie also has not been informed of a position switch. It never made much sense for the Giants to move DRC from cornerback, where they could use some help, to safety, where they have plenty of talent, and now it does not look like it is going to happen.
Mar 8 - 12:24 PM

The Giants are moving CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to safety.

Rodgers-Cromartie was an effective corner when on the field last year, but the Giants' new coaching staff will get him the majority of his 2018 snaps at safety. He's expected to compete with Darian Thompson to start opposite Landon Collins. Rodgers-Cromartie moving to safety confirms the Giants plan to move forward with a clean slate for Eli Apple.
Mar 3 - 5:04 PM

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz believes Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could be cut this offseason.

Rodgers-Cromartie is a difficult case. While he fell out with the coaching staff last season, those coaches are gone and he remained an effective option when given snaps. The Giants could use some extra cap space, however, and cutting DRC would save them $6.5 million. Perhaps a pay cut could work for both sides.
Feb 13 - 11:49 AM

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played just 16-of-76 snaps Week 7 against the Seahawks.

Coming back from a one-game suspension, Rodgers-Cromartie said he expected to be limited. "I can’t complain or get mad about when I’m in or out," the corner said. "I know it’s a long football season and I know one thing about corners, we always get hurt, so I know I’m gonna get a chance to get back in there." It would make sense for the Giants to have Rodgers-Cromartie play a bigger role after the bye week.
Mon, Oct 23, 2017 09:58:00 AM

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's suspension has been lifted.

So the "indefinite" ban ended up lasting just one game. Suspended after walking out of the facility, Rodgers-Cromartie and coach Ben McAddo apparently smoothed things over in a meeting last week. This will hopefully be the last we hear of the incident.
Tue, Oct 17, 2017 08:51:00 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, suspended Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is expected to be reinstated for Week 7.

DRC was suspended "indefinitely" after storming out of the team facility on Wednesday, but it looks like he'll only miss one game. Rodgers-Cromartie's frustration stems from being pulled from last week's game against the Chargers, though after meeting with head coach Ben McAdoo to clear the air, it seems the two sides have come to an understanding. The veteran corner is currently attending homecoming weekend at his alma mater Tennessee State, but should be back at the Giants' facility for the start of practice next week.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 08:33:00 AM

Giants announced CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is suspended indefinitely.

After walking out of the facility on Wednesday, Rodgers-Cromartie returned Thursday morning to meet with coach Ben McAdoo, but the suspension will stand. The Giants are only allowed to suspend DRC for a maximum of four games, and it seems unlikely the ban lasts even that long. That said, he will not be available for the game against the Broncos this week. CB Donte Deayon was promoted off the practice squad in a corresponding move.
Thu, Oct 12, 2017 11:25:00 AM

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended after walking out of a team meeting on Wednesday.

DRC's troubles actually began on Friday when he walked out on the team's "recovery day." Frustrations mounted Sunday against the Chargers when Rodgers-Cromartie angrily slammed his helmet down and left the field before the game was over. Coach Ben McAdoo held a meeting with Rodgers-Cromartie on Tuesday, telling him that he would be allowed to practice but would not be active for Week 6 against the Broncos and would also be fined for skipping the mandatory recovery day. DRC responded by walking out of Wednesday's meeting and cleaning out his locker, which prompted the suspension. Despite his recent outbursts, the Giants have no plans to trade or release Rodgers-Cromartie.
Wed, Oct 11, 2017 05:46:00 PM

Giants suspended CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for conduct detrimental to the team.

According to those involved, Rodgers-Cromartie came into the facility Wednesday and got into a heated altercation with coach Ben McAdoo. It reportedly had much to do with his role on defense. DRC has been playing inside, covering the slot, but wants to play outside after he briefly was given the chance to in Week 5 against the Chargers at the expense of Eli Apple. The coaching staff apparently wants to go back to Apple, and DRC decided to leave the team. It's a sinking ship for the G-Men. Look for Ross Cockrell to pick up the available snaps.
