Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picks New York Giants over Jets

DRC will sign with the Giants after considering an offer from the Jets as well.

The New York Giants secondary got a nice boost on Monday. After managing to get a visit with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie right after he visited the Jets, the G-Men made sure he didn't escape their grasp.

The former Broncos CB agreed to terms on a five-year deal with the Giants, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. NFL.com'ds Ian Rapoport has reported that the new contract is worth up to $39 million and includes $14 million in guaranteed money.

Rodgers-Cromartie took a physical with the Giants on Monday. He already had one done with the Jets, so it was clear both teams were very interested in signing him, but the Giants had more money to offer.

In order to help make room for the move though, the Giants convinced DE Mathias Kiwanuka to take a $2.175 million pay cut.

DRC has six interceptions and 36 pass deflections over the past two seasons. He'll likely be the No. 1 CB for a Giants secondary that finished among the league's worst in 2013.

The secondary doesn't look too bad now with DRC lining up next to Prince Amukamara and Walter Thurmond, who signed Sunday, in the slot. Having safety Antrel Rolle was also beneficial, as both he and DRC were once teammates with the Arizona Cardinals.

This is suddenly a promising secondary heading into the 2014 season.
