Giants, Rodgers-Cromartie agree to five-year deal

The Giants and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie have agreed to a five-year deal (Schefter, March 17). The deal is reportedly worth $35-39 million, with $15 million guaranteed (Vacchiano, March 17, Schefter, March 17).

The 27-year-old had 31 combined tackles and three interceptions for the Broncos in 2013, returning one for a touchdown.

He met with the Giants on Sunday and took a physical with them on Monday (Big Blue Blitz, March 17).

The Broncos previously had an offer out to Rodgers-Cromartie, but pulled it after they signed Aqib Talib (Crabtree, March 12).

Rodgers-Cromartie was a first-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2008, where he played for the first three seasons of his career. He had 13 interceptions with the Cardinals in 48 games. He went to the Pro Bowl in 2009. From 2011-2012, he spent two seasons with the Eagles, playing 29 games, with three interceptions.

He signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Broncos before the 2013 season.

Very nice signing, never a bad move when you upgrade your secondary in today's pass happy NFL, D-Ro-Cro has the talent to be a game changer on defense

Im relieved the Giants got him for a lower salary that what was mentioned a few days ago.

I don't think he's all that good and might not be worth 7MM a year.  But it's only a 2 year contract and they can cut him after that.  They need a corner back so I can understand why they wanted him.

I would have preferred them signing Alterun Verner.

Is he any good?  Just seems like Denver's secondary got torched all year.

Now I hope they either move up for Evans and grab a good blocking TE with some offensive potential like Troy Niklas or stay at 12 and pick Ebron

This is great! A questionable secondary has become a great strength. With the reinforcements during FA, Reese and Coughlin can back off CB in the first round and focus on offense.

Skill player in round 1. Reinforcements for the Dline and Oline rounds 2-4, HB and LB later in the draft.

He's got 3 names, he's got to be good!

Our secondary will be interesting. Coughlin better teach him how to tackle. Hopefully the cap takes another big jump next year so we are strapped by another big contract. We can get a tackle and a tight end in the draft, still question marks for center. Guess they are going with the young guys

Somewhere Antrel Rolle is cuttin up his CB jersey. Now he stays where he is best! Write this down, JPP and DaMonster will be getting a lot of help from blitzers this year. Was Perry Fewell replaced or something this winter?

HTF did the NYG pull this off with the miniscule cap space they had left?!? That's just as big a story

This is an amazing signing. GMEN hardly ever make a big splash in FA and then we get this. The lack of experience up front with the younger guys with be aided by the revamped secondary. We just went from causing pressure to get sacks to racking up coverage sacks. Love the signing!

@Peter Sinapi  ....  I wish Fewell was replaced the last two off-seasons, so now at least there will be NO EXCUSES if the Giants stumble defensively again this season. If Fewell can't create at least a top 15 defense after all of these defensive reinforcements, then he's not much of a defensive coordinator at all, and he needs to go.
