The New York Giants have cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers Cromartie, who was set to count $6.5 million against the cap.
What does this mean?
This move will save enough money for them to go after All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell. The cutting of DRC is hard news to bear, as he was a fan-favorite and a stellar component to the Giants’ defense.

DRC started in six games last season, but played in 15. He only managed to defend one pass the entire season, but locked down the opposing slot receiver on a weekly basis.
It was rumored that the veteran corner would be moving to safety, but after the Giants asked him to take a significant pay-cut, he clearly rejected the proposition.
