The Giants will get a face-to-face meeting with the top unrestricted free agent left on the market.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Giants will host Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday. Rodgers-Cromartie huddled with the Jets on Saturday.
The 27-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie is the fourth-ranked cornerback and 12th-ranked player in PFT’s free agent rankings. The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Rodgers-Cromartie has ideal size and athleticism for his position, and he’s intercepted 19 passes in six NFL seasons. An above-average starter, Rodgers-Cromartie would figure as one of the Giants’ top two cornerbacks were he to sign.
Where Rodgers-Cromartie ends up is one of the more compelling storylines left in free agency. He turned down a lucrative multi-year deal to re-sign with the Broncos, who signed the Patriots’ Aqib Talib to replace him.
Now, it appears Rodgers-Cromartie will visit another potential suitor on the sixth day of free agency.
