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.

  1. I can’t see Jerry paying big money but they need more help in the secondary especially since the defensive line isn’t going to provide as many coverage sacks this year, it would be one the Gmens highlights if they were able to get him to sign. I was especially happy Beason re-signed

  2. Beason and Rolle will lead the defense. dRC could cover well for NYG with the Prince on the other side.

  3. I’m realllllyyyyy hoping the Giants nail this and draft a solid CB. DRC would be the perfect vet to learn behind for a young corner, hell all our corners/secondary could benefit from him.

  4. I have no idea why the Giants are taking the time for the visit. They aren’t going to pay anything close to the Broncos offer and they aren’t going to pay big money to two CBs (Prince’s deal is coming up soon). I give this < 1% chance of happening.

  5. You have to think the Giants had some kind of plan heading into free agency and the draft. Now, what exactly that plan is remains to be seen. They pretty much let Tuck and Nicks walk for peanuts. Nicks I expected, but kind of surprised with Tuck- especially for what they could have kept him for. They signed a solid back, solid guard, and a bit of a reclamation project center. Kept Beason, and picked up another decent LB. For what it’s worth to me, looks like they have a purpose of getting younger, hungrier, and trying to develop a team that can hopefully make a couple more playoff runs before Eli gets too old. Not known for bringing in high-priced free agents, Rodgers-Cromartie might be an exception in his prime to pair with Amukamara. Pretty nice secondary if he’s added. One less thing to worry about in the early draft too. Then they can draft some young guys for that O-Line and add a TE. They would take Ebron at 12, but I don’t think he’ll be there. Hope he slips, but I doubt it.
