Ben McAdoo tells Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie he’s suspended indefinitely

The Giants suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Wednesday, but his absence from the team wasn’t an extended one.

Rodgers-Cromartie said he’d be back at the team’s facility on Thursday and multiple reports on Thursday morning indicate that is the case. Rodgers-Cromartie’s suspension is not over, however.

Rodgers-Cromartie met with head coach Ben McAdoo, who told him that he is suspended indefinitely. The move comes after a series of reported clashes between player and coach that culminated with Rodgers-Cromartie being told on Tuesday that he would be inactive for the Week Six game against the Broncos.

As a practical matter, the indefinite suspension has an end date as the CBA only allows teams to suspend players for four games. The team won’t be required to play him at that point, but they’ll have to come up with another way of handling things if they don’t want him back on the field.

  1. This guy… yeah the Giants have some issues to work on this year, and I can understand he’s frustrated, but doesn’t he realize instead of helping make things better he’s making things worse?

  2. The wheels are rapidly falling off here.

    Things are going okay here in Jacksonville. The ‘team’ is really coming together.

    Hope it all works out okay for you fans in NY.

    Miss you,
    Love, Tom C.

  3. McAdoo should have traded him yesterday. Teams always need secondary help. Now McAdoo is carrying dead weight on his roster. Along with filling the weekly drama of reporter questions to fill the Beckham void.

    The more I see of McAdoo’s handling (or lack of) of issues and players. The less I respect him as a legit NFL head coach.

  4. I predicted 5 wins for my giants before the season started and people called me delusional, overly negative, a fake fan, yada yada…

    Well, here we are at 0-5. This wasn’t hard to see coming at all folks.

  5. The Revenge of the Chargers is complete. Spurned by Manning in 2004, the Chargers have prevailed in all 4 contests since, including two blow-outs (45-24; 38-16), one come-from-behind heart-breaker in NY (21-20), and now, as a parting gift to Manning, a victory that sends his team to 0-5 (they would have still been alive at 1-4) and guts their roster with season-ending injuries to three wideouts and injuries to one other wideout and a number of defensive backs. Watching the gamecast on my phone, it seemed that every other play in the 4th quarter was described as “[INSERT GIANTS PLAYER] was injured on the play.”

    The Giants are no stranger to slow starts. In 2013, they started 0-6, getting their first win against the Vikings, which threw Josh Freeman in at QB after only 3 days with the team. They rebounded to finish 7-9, but this year’s injuries and schedule are far more forbidding. They still have the Broncos in Denver, the Chiefs, Raiders, Seahawks, and resurgent Rams left to play. The 49ers and Cardinals offer the best opportunities for a win.

  6. Giants are better off trading DRC and seeing if they can get a late round pick for him. They need all the picks they can get because the Giants need to blow things up and rebuild. Eli is old and on the decline, McAdoo needs to be fired and so does the GM Reese. Time to start over, especially in a division with the rising Eagles and Carson Wentz and Dak with the Cowboys!

  7. nothing easier than for an 0-5 coach to play tough guy and discipline guys for no following rules

    Goodell covered that one up for Goober Manning as fast as he covered up the Guyer Institute PED case with Gomer.

    How wonderful for all NFL fans watching the corruption and cheating right in front of us like this.

    Football gods have been watching. The chickens have come home to roost.

    The bell tools for thee.

  10. “Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says, “Thank you.””

    Yeah I don’t think so. He was making 6.5 million this year. Each game he sits costs him over 382k, so I doubt he’s anything but even more pissed than he already was.

    Total and complete idiot. Hope he’s played his last down in the NFL

  11. He can come to Washington and be the 3rd or 4th. Remember when the Skins were finishing last in the Division…like they say every year?

  12. You had some good Superbowl years with Manning. Time to blow it up and start over. Maybe Brees comes over as a stop gap next year?

  13. Wow! That was some revenge the Chargers got on Manning and his penchant for big markets. An 0-4 record against the Chargers for his career. 0-5 start to this year. Three seadon-ending injuries to premiere wideouts and numerous other injuries affecting this week’s contest.

  14. New York is insured against an 0-5 football team. They have two other teams in the NFL alone (and when they couldn’t handle the Patriots, the Giants did). They have the Yankees to console them even as the Mets tanked. They have 4 hockey teams and 2 basketball teams. Statistically they should be winning more championships than they are.

  15. Giants need to blow it up and start over. First to go should be McAdoo. He is not a good HC. He’s probably lost the locker room, if he ever had it. They should have never fired Coughlin. They’ve been circling the drain ever since.

  16. Goodell covered that one up for Goober Manning as fast as he covered up the Guyer Institute PED case with Gomer.

    You are so right. Yet the Patriots are always the “cheaters”. Everyone looks the other way when it’s a Manning.

  17. 2 things this does, it saves the Giants money on a lost season, and it increases the probability of getting that top 3 draft pick. They probably were jumping for joy that he had ran out the stadium. God forbid your 2nd best corner gets an interception and return it for a touchdown.. This guy has been the best corner prior to Jenkins, yes he missed tackles but I don’t remember him giving up a TD like Apple.. For the longest time he was the MVP on a crappy defense. He still has 1 year on his contract, and honestly it’s a bargain, because he can still cover. I would rather they keep him.. If they are not going to bring him back, they should try to trade him for a draft pick, although we seen how those picks worked out..

  18. Another NFL Diva. Walks out on his team and then wonders why he’s suspended.
    Whats next, he pushes for a trade to a team where the coach claims he was misunderstood. You can’t make this stuff up. Where is he going to get the kind of paycheck he is receiving?

  19. When a team I follow is having a bad year, I actually enjoy when things get worse because that is the only way things get blown up. This team needs to keep Collins, thompson, JPP, Vernon , Jenkins, Apple On defence, and on offence they need to keep pugh, richburgh, Gallman, Odell, Jones, Fluker and Shepard. Eli has been solid, but get rid of him to ensure we get a higher pick.
    Goodbye to the rest of the team!!
    time for a new era.

  20. Barring last year, which was a fluke anyway, the Giants have been in disarray for 6 straight years now. If this (possibly winning NO games in 2017) is what it takes to FINALLY change the front office and get this team playing competitive football again, I’ll deal with it. If I could live through the late 70’s Giants and the Dave Brown/Kent Graham Giants I can deal with this.

  21. What are the Giants waiting for? They aren’t making the playoffs, so why keep McAdoo around? It’s not like the’re going to bring him back next season, so start the process now. As dysfunctional as that organization is, there will be coaches lining up to take that high-profile job. The sooner they start, the more options they’ll have.

  22. In fairness, McAdoo has become something of an expert in the field of dealing with indefinite futures.

  23. Maybe he’ll use the free time to go out in the community and try to solve some of the oppression and social justice issues we’re now all so keenly aware of.

    Riiiiight.

    Somewhere in Florida Tom Coughlin is having a laugh.

    Why? If that guy hadn’t miracled two Super Bowl wins, he would have been viewed as a disaster.

  26. It’s actually pretty hard to go 0-16. Even the Browns couldn’t do it last year. Somewhere along the way, the Giants will eek out a win or two.
