Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Finalizing 5-Year Deal with Giants


The New York Giants and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie have reached a 5-year deal and will be the new Cromartie in the New York area. Rodgers-Cromartie is finalizing a 5-year deal with the Giants, per Ian Rapoport.

Within the last couple of days, the Giants have upgraded their secondary with the additions of Walter Thurmond from the Seattle Seahawks and now Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

DRC played well for the Denver Broncos last season. He signed a 1-year contract with the Broncos and would have re-signed with the team, but the Broncos decided to sign Aqib Talib instead.

Rodgers-Cromartie also met with the New York Jets, but decided to sign with the Giants roster instead. The Jets are left with a bare secondary and will need to pick up the pieces at that position.

The Giants have to deal with the Eagles and Cowboys passing game twice a season, so they needed to make some upgrades in that department. They are re-stocked and ready to compete with those passing teams.
