Denver Broncos CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Visit with New York Giants

Through the first four days of free agency, the New York Giants have struck out on every single attempt to land help at cornerback, especially since the team was very adamant about looking for and attempting to land a top-tier corner for the 2014 season.

A new name has popped up on their radar, as Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is in town for a visit, as Conor Orr of the Newark-Star Ledger reported on Friday afternoon.

Rodgers-Cromartie has experience playing in the NFC East from his short time with the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2011; he was in the trade that sent the Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb and the Eagles the veteran corner.

The New York Jets are also interested in Rodgers-Cromartie, as he was in town to visit them first before coming to visit the Giants; both teams are in extreme need of secondary help at the position.

In 2013, Rodgers-Cromartie played in 15 games for Denver and had three interceptions to go along with 39 tackles and 19 pass deflections for the AFC Champions and with players like Darrelle Revis, Sam Shields, Vontae Davis, Cortland Finnegan, Charles Tillman and Corey Graham off the board, Rodgers-Cromartie has become the top target of the cornerback market.

The Giants voided the contract of Corey Webster and allowed both Aaron Ross and Terrell Thomas to walk as free agents. They re-signed Trumaine McBride to a two-year deal and have Prince Amukamara and Jayron Hosley still on the roster, but the Giants still need help at the position, thus the interest in Rodgers-Cromartie.

    Would love to have his talent on the giants

    I liked this move. Hopefully we act on it now instead of losing out on him. If he wants Shields or Talib money I will pass. If he is in the range of Verner I think we might have to make a move on him. Verner was younger than him but DRC is talented and hopefully we make him apart of our secondary

      He reportedly declined a 6 yr 54 mil contract. I think he wants 10mil per year. I doubt he will be in the Verner range.

    The kind of money this clown will want is going to be in the $8 mil per season range … and multi-year. He’s also a gambler and an attacker … a poor fit for our puzzy-a$$ed defense schemes. There’s no way we should go anywhere near him. But … to be honest … there are times we wander off the reservation and do crazy things. Remember Haynesworth? And Heyward-Bey? I hope this isn’t another one of those.

    DRC is going to cost an absolute fortune. I suspect he’s just stopping by the offices since he’s already around for his likely more serious visit to the Jets. DRC is also maddeningly inconsistent. He was up and down in Arizona, absolutely terrible in Philly, and then a top 3 CB in Denver. Giving a guy who has been so up and down his entire career is a risk IMO.

    As for Tuck, I’ll always respect him for what he brought to this team and the things he did for us in both our Super Bowl wins. That being said, we made the right call not re-signing him. 30 years old, oft-injured, and was a trainwreck for two full seasons before racking up some sacks in a meaningless season in his contract year. Thanks for the memories but consider me relieved he’s elsewhere.

    Would love the move, I would give him Verner money if we have it

    Nicks on a 1 yr deal to the Colts

    •  G-MenFan says:

      Yeah, Hakeem just lost a lot of leverage with Carolina. This is one of the more interesting FA Season stories so far. Stay tuned…

    •  G-MenFan says:

      Oops sorry, I though you posted the Smith deal. Nicks to the Colts for ONE year? Wow.

      •  rlhjr says:

        Called that one (Nicks to Indy) last week. Let’s see if he dogs it there.
        Everyone in NC is outraged at Smith being let go.
        These folks genuinely loved him. Down in n NC caring for my mom.

    1 year deal 3.5 million deal for nicks.
