Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is back with the New York Giants. The Giants have lifted Rodgers-Cromartie’s suspension, meaning he will be eligible to play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended indefinitely last week following what head coach Ben McAdoo told NBC were “four separate incidents” involving the veteran cornerback.
McAdoo and Rodgers-Cromartie has been expected to meet Tuesday morning, with McAdoo having indicated that he wanted to speak with DRC before making a decision on the suspension. Apparently, McAdoo heard what he needed to hear from Rodgers-Cromartie.
To make room for DRC, the Giants waived/injured cornerback Michael Hunter.
This could be DRC’s final season with the Giants. Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, is in the fourth year of a five-year, $35 million contract. The Giants could save $6.5 million against the salary cap if they were to decide to part ways with him prior to next season.
