New York Giants position preview: Defensive backs

The New York Giants secondary has been one of its weaknesses in the past; it ranked 18th in the NFL in 2014 in passing defense, and 30th in the NFL in 2014 in rushing defense.  If everything lines up for New York, 2015 could be the year to improve those numbers. With second round draft pick and safety Landon Collins in the mix as well as experienced cornerbacks Prince Amukumara...

New York Giants secondary gets stronger by adding former Baltimore safety

The New York Giants have several holes on their roster they need to fill if they’re serious about winning the NFC East any time soon. Cornerback is not one of them as they have two of the NFL’s best in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Prince Amukamara starting. Safety is more of a question mark – but Jerry Reese seems intent on upgrading and adding depth there this offseason...

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Gave Landon Collins Jersey Number for Free

When a rookie enters the NFL or a prized free agent signs with another franchise, it’s common to hear of a teammate holding a jersey number hostage. But when New York Giants first-round pick Landon Collins went to cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and asked for No. 21, the veteran ignored tradition and gave it up for free. According to Jordan Ranaan of, after a failed...

Rodgers-Cromartie out to change perception after injury plagued 2014

If you ask New York Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, his first season with the team was a failure. After being brought in on a five-year, $39 million contract to serve as the team's shutdown cornerback, injuries limited Giants fans from seeing everything that Rodgers-Cromartie has to offer. The result was an array of game tape that Rodgers-Cromartie does not want to...

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie feels new defense is 'cornerback-friendly'

In late April, Nat Berhe took a vested shot at former New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell in an effort to praise new defensive boss Steve Spagnuolo. Berhe, a second year safety, only played 32 defensive snaps in 2014--however interesting they may have been, his comments didn't pick up much traction. On Monday following the Giants' OTAs practice, cornerback Dominique...

The New York Giants’ offense was atrocious in 2013, but it was hard to ignore the need to bolster the secondary entering the offseason this winter.

An In-Depth Look at the Giants FA Signings: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

When I first heard the Giants were looking at Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie I was scared and admittedly a little bit excited. I had read reports that DRC had turned down a six-year $54 million deal from the Broncos, albeit without knowing the exact details of the contract. For that kind of money, there is no way the Giants could bring DRC in, especially considering the kind of money...
