Damon Harrison took to Twitter and responded to the news, saying Rodgers-Cromartie was "the realist in the building."

The team sought to shift Rodgers-Cromartie to safety while also asking him to take a pay cut, but that never materialized. The team will now save $6.5 million by releasing him.
Rodgers-Cromartie, who spent four seasons with the Giants, had 31 tackles and no interceptions in 2017.
