Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Giants agree to five-year deal

One of the best players who was still available on the open market was cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but interest in the free agent’s services picked up this weekend and he has finally found a new home.

According to reports, Rodgers-Cromartie has agreed to a five-year contract with the New York Giants. The move brings him back to the NFC East, where he previously played for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to pass along the news. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it is rumored to be around $35 million.

Rodgers-Cromartie will now team up with former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond, as the Giants complete their overhaul in the secondary.

The New York Jets were also in the mix for Rodgers-Cromartie, but he opted for the NFC representative out of New York and now leaves the Jets more desperate than ever for help in the defensive backfield.
