The New York Giants want to substantially reduce cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's salary, the NFL Network reported Saturday.

The New York Giants reportedly will release cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in order to shave $6.5 million off their books, according to Adam Schefter and Jordan Raanan of ESPN. Because Rodgers-Cromartie was released, he is free to sign with any team at any time.

Like most of the Giants' players Rodgers-Cromartie didn't have a career year in 2017, but he was still solid. He appeared in 61 games with 44 starts in four seasons with Big Blue, recording 11 interceptions and 47 passes defensed. He followed up with six interceptions in 2016 and earned second-team All-Pro honours.

He says Florida "passed a lot of very good legislation last night". "We have paid a awful price for this progress". It also creates a so-called "guardian" program that enables teachers and other school employees to carry handguns.

As a result, Rodgers-Cromartie had one of his least productive seasons in 2017 failed to record a single interception the entire year for just the second time in his 10-year National Football League career. The two-time Pro Bowler has played cornerback his entire 10-year career, starting on the outside early in his career before being shifted inside to the slot the past two seasons.

Rodgers-Cromartie was a first-round draft pick out of Tennessee State by the Cardinals in 2008. They finished just 31 against the pass and gave up an NFL-worst 32 touchdown passes.
