Could The New York Giants Trade Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie To The Miami Dolphins?

Fair or not, New York Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been mentioned as a potential cap casualty simply based on the amount of money the team would save by releasing him ($5 million).

DRC, who turns 31 in April, had the most productive season of his career in 2016, as he was named an All-Pro while ranking as Pro Football Focus’ fifth-best cornerback.

But he now serves as the team’s third cornerback with Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple penciled in as starters.

So, instead of releasing DRC, a potential trade partner could emerge in the form of the Miami Dolphins, who are looking for a “big-name” cornerback in the trade market.

Early on Thursday, there was a report that Miami had released offensive tackle Branden Albert – apparently, that’s no longer the case, as they realized he has value on the trade market.

Albert’s cap number next season is just shy of $11 million while Rodgers-Cromartie has a cap hit of $9 million.

Sure, the Giants would be taking on a slightly larger contract but they would also be trading a player who is playing a position the organization doesn’t necessarily need at the moment.

Albert had a tough 2016 campaign with Miami, as he posted a PFF grade of 42.2.

But in 2014, he was one of the better offensive tackles in the game, registering a PFF grade of 87.9.

Considering Albert’s track record as a two-time Pro Bowl tackle, it may be a risk worth taking.

    So what he a top 5 corner.. he not worth a first-round pick. Lol i would say maybe if he was 4 years younger.. . Dude I’m a Giants fan to… Giants won’t get a first round pick plus his contact is up next year anyways. If dolphins really wanted him they wait next year get him in FA. And Giants been thinking about cutting Cromartie anyways free up some cap money.

    Look how good was Randy moss when he played for the Raiders . When Raiders traded him to the Patriots do you remember what Raiders got in return for Randy moss a 5th round pick. Players isn’t worth much when there close to 30 or over 30 years old.
