After missing the playoffs the past two seasons, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants aren’t one of the morning-line favorites to get back to the postseason.
The 28-year-old is in the prime of his career and he gives the Giants probably their best shutdown cornerback in years. Now entering his seventh season, Rodgers-Cromartie makes plays.
Coming off his best season, New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle has reason to smile.
Antrel Rolle has a Super Bowl ring. So does Prince Amukamara. And newcomer Walter Thurmond. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie knows the ropes. Now, they all need to blend together.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is out to prove his doubters wrong this season: “I got something to prove this year and shut a whole bunch of people up.”
Thurmond believes that the Giants’ secondary — consisting of himself, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Prince Amukamara, Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown — can be as good as the “Legion of Boom” that tormented offenses in Seattle.
The Giants have reached an agreement with the former Seahawks cornerback on a one-year contract, according to multiple reports.
Being humbled by Oakland in a 33-3 rout was one thing for Seattle. But Pete Carroll’s crew also left significantly beat up.
