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.
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.
