The New York Giants cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday.
Rodgers-Cromartie and the team failed to rework his contract Jack Crawford Jersey , which called for him to make $6.5 million in salary and a cap hit of $8.5 million.
The 2017 season was a difficult one for the 10-year pro who didn’t have an interception and was suspended for one game by then-coach Ben McAdoo for leaving practice without permission.
But Rodgers-Cromartie expressed his regret about leaving the franchise in a tweet Sunday.
”Once a Giant always a Giant right. Thanks for everything, Ima miss my dogs but y’all knw me, SEE BALL, GET BALL!!!”
Rodgers-Cromartie was a first-round draft pick out of Tennessee State by the Cardinals in 2008. He played three seasons for Arizona, getting 13 interceptions, returning two for touchdowns out of three he picked off in 2010. He scored four TDs for Arizona.
He then went to Philadelphia for two years, Denver for one before spending the last four seasons with New York.
Rodgers-Cromartie will be 32 in April. He insisted he mishandled the events leading to his suspension last October, both in how he acted during a game against the Chargers on Oct. 8, and two days later when McAdoo told him he would be inactive for the trip to Denver.
”To be honest, coach called me up and he said some things and I kind of didn’t agree with it and I handled it the wrong way Bryan Bulaga Jersey ,” Rodgers-Cromartie said then. ”At the end of the day, that’s on me. So the suspension, I take that. All I can do is try to work back to get in good grace with the guys. I’m just glad that they didn’t let this turn them from me and they accepted me and I’m just back working, man.”
Janoris Jenkins remains the only proven cornerback on the Giants, with troubled Eli Apple still on the roster and potentially slated to replace Rodgers-Cromartie in the lineup.


The San Antonio Spurs face a near-must-win situation when they host the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.
And nothing would make the Trail Blazers happier than to snatch that victory away from the Spurs and rain a little on the parade San Antonio has enjoyed for the past two decades.
The Spurs (45-34) are in desperation mode although they begin play in the sixth playoff spot in the Western Conference with three games to play. San Antonio is tied with New Orleans and Oklahoma City for fifth place in the Western Conference standings, a game behind fourth-place Utah. But only one game separates fifth place from ninth place, with the top eight teams earning spots in the postseason.
San Antonio heads home for its next-to-last home game after two straight, last-second losses in Los Angeles, first to the Clippers Tuesday and then to the Lakers, with the latter a 122-112 setback in overtime the following night.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 28 points for the Spurs in the loss to the Lakers Harrison Butker Jersey , while Dejounte Murray hit for 23 points and took 10 rebounds, and Pau Gasol had 11 points and 12 rebounds. Rudy Gay added 14 points off the bench for San Antonio.
The loss was San Antonio’s seventh straight on the road and kept the Spurs’ magic number to clinch their 21st consecutive playoff berth at two. Two of San Antonio’s last three games are against teams with winning records, including their season finale at New Orleans on Wednesday.
“Man, we’ve got to know that every game is a playoff, a Game 7 for us,” Murray said. “We’ve got to play for 48 minutes, and if the game decides to go to overtime like it did tonight, we’ve got to be ready to play even more.
“We are staying together,” Murray added. “One thing I can say, we are staying together. There is a lot going on. When you lose games Marquel Lee Jersey , it is easy to lose focus.”
For the first time in 18 years, the Spurs will not win 50 games in a season. And Gasol said that San Antonio’s margin for error is shrinking.
“We have been talking about that,” Gasol said. “It just gets slimmer and slimmer. It was the worst outcome, losing two games that we had our chances and even times, especially (against the Clippers), were in control of with big leads. But two losses, and that is reality.”
Portland (48-31) heads to the Alamo City in third place in the Western Conference standings, a game up on Utah but already assured of a spot in the playoffs. The Trail Blazers lost their most recent game at Houston 96-94 on Thursday despite allowing just 12 points in the fourth quarter and 30 points in the second half.
CJ McCollum led the Trail Blazers with 16 points, and Jusuf Nurkic had his 25th double-double of the season, finishing with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the loss. Wade Baldwin IV scored 14 points while Caleb Swanigan had a career-high 10 points and Evan Turner had 10 points for Portland.
“I know we put in all the guys who don’t play a lot DeShone Kizer Jersey , everybody’s hungry,” Baldwin said. “Everybody wants to play in this league, everybody wants to show what they can do. I think everybody did a fantastic job of showing that tonight.”
Portland dropped its second consecutive game and fell to 4-5 since a 13-game winning streak launched them up the Western Conference standings
“Those guys at the end just worked their (butts) off,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “Played hard, were aggressive defensively. It was really impressive. Too bad we couldn’t go to overtime or win it, but I was really proud of the way they played.”
Portland’s star guard Damian Lillard has been hampered by an ankle injury but said Friday that he expects to play on Saturday in San Antonio.
