Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been the subject of trade speculation, but the veteran corner said Monday, though, that he expects to be with the New York Giants once the 4 p.m. trade deadline passes on Tuesday.

"Yes sir, where am I going to go? I ain't packed up," he said. "Ain't no trade over here."

Rodgers-Cromartie said he isn’t asking for a trade and “a trade ain’t on my mind.”

Two other veterans in the final years of their contracts, linebacker Jonathan Casillas and running back Shane Vereen, also expressed the desire to remain with the Giants.

“I’m excited to be here, ready to be here,” Vereen said. “It’s a business, I understand it. If something happens it happens.

“I want to finish what I started here.”

Casillas was even stronger than Vereen in expressing his desire to stay.

“I’ve been a part of a trade and I don’t want to be a part of a trade and leave this team,” he said. “I wouldn’t trade this locker room, these group of guys for anyone in the world. And, I’ve been a part of two Super Bowl teams and I’ve left a team who had a similar record to go to a Super Bowl team. So, I’ve been there. I don’t want to do it – not with this team. Never.”
