New York Giants Top 10 of 2014: Which free-agent acquisition ranks at No. 5?

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...
