Giants' Snacks Harrison defends Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, at cost of other teammates?

The Giants are going to save money on DRC one way or another

A year ago was a rough one for Rodgers-Cromartie, who saw his playing time decrease, and who was suspended after clashing with the coaching staff.

The Giants released Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after he reportedly refused to take a pay cut to stay in NY.

This is not a surprise, because Rodgers-Cromartie's salary in 2018 is on the books for $6.48 million, with a salary cap hit of $8.5 million. They also considering trying him at free safety, a source told Raanan.

Rodgers-Cromartie's release comes on the heels of the Giants cutting punter Brad Wing on Saturday, which saved Big Blue $1.025 million in cap space.

It will be interesting to see how Harrison's comments that "52 other players who should be asked to do the same thing" as Rodgers-Cromartie - referencing being asked to take a pay cut - plays in a locker room that became divided amid a disastrous 3-13 2017 season.

The Giants' decision to cut Rodgers-Cromartie shouldn't be all that surprising. However, he saw his status as a starter reduced during last season as he was supplanted by Eli Apple in the Giants secondary.

ESPN first reported Rodgers-Cromartie's imminent release. The 10-year veteran missed just three games in his four years with the Giants - one was because of the suspension - but his reliability was questioned at times.

But the Giants regressed from the NFL's No 2 scoring defense in 2016 to No. 27 last season as they finished with the most losses in franchise history.
