It was mentioned earlier this week, by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, that the Giants were in the process of moving Rodgers-Cromartie from cornerback to free safety, because of a new defensive coordinator James Bettcher's defensive scheme.

Rodgers-Cromartie was open to the idea of switching positions after recording zero interceptions in 2017 just one year after snaring six, NY and the CB couldn't hammer out a pay cut from his $6.5 million salary in 2018.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the New York Giants informed Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday morning that they were releasing him.

Dravid was keen on receiving the same amount as the rest of the coaching staff and reduced his initial Rs. 50 Lakh by Rs. 25 Lakh. Moreover, in a welcome decision, the board has increased the match fees of domestic cricketers, of each category, by 200 percent.

The move saves the Giants $6.5 million against the salary cap, upping their available space to around $26.5 million entering the free agency negotiation period on Monday, following the recent trade for Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree and Saturday's release of punter Brad Wing.

It's been a insane week for Rodgers-Cromartie.

Rodgers-Cromartie expressed his thanks to the Giants organization on an Instagram post.
