Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie hints he could return to the Giants

Free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has said he expects to be in some team’s training camp. Might his new team be his old team?

Rodgers-Cromartie played in Giants safety Landon Collins‘ charity softball game yesterday, and he hinted at the possibility of returning to the Giants this year.

Y’all might see me again,” Rodgers-Cromartie told Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record.

Although Stapleton said that was just a flip comment, Rodgers-Cromartie did have the option of taking a pay cut to stay with the Giants before they cut him in March. Rodgers-Cromartie said at the time that he declined the pay cut because he wanted to see what else was out there, but he also said he thought he would sign by April, and now he remains unsigned in June. It may be that there’s nothing else out there that’s better than whatever pay cut the Giants were offering him three months ago.

The 32-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie played the last four seasons for the Giants after previously playing for the Broncos, Eagles and Cardinals.

  1. Please bring him back. The only proven corner on the team is Jenkins. The new guys that were signed during the off-season are backups at best. Even if Eli Apple stepped his game up, which is still a question mark, DRC would solidify the back end. DO IT!

  2. Recognizing the Giants offer was indeed fair market value (or better), DRC’s comment tells me he wants to play, not just make millions. The roster moves on offense probably appeal to DRC as well – if the offense lives up to its talent, they’ll score plenty, and won’t put as much pressure on the defense to hold opponents down every game.

  3. DRC one of my favorite Giants of recent. Long and fast, and simply makes plays. Hopefully Gettleman sees some value in the old vet.

    The guy who struggled to remember the names of his children is going to remember the plays from a new play book?

    Nope. Not him. Wrong guy. You are thinking of a different guy, the retired Antonio Cromartie.
