Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was the one player GM Jerry Reese thought the Giants would have a hard time signing this offseason.
“Rodgers-Cromartie was a guy that we thought would be tough to pin down because we thought there’d be a lot of suitors for him,” Reese said (Giants, May 6).
Reese said that DRC visited the Giants and liked what he saw with the organization.
“It worked out for us,” Reese said. “We’re happy to have him.”
OL Geoff Schwartz was also a high-profile free-agent signing this offseason. He was sought by several teams, but Reese knew bringing in the former Oregon Duck would be a big step in restructuring the crumbling o-line:
“Schwartz brings some flexibility to us on our offensive line,” said Reese. “He’s a big guy that plays like a big guy. We wanted to try to get bigger on our offensive line.” (Giants May 6)
