The New York Giants are reportedly planning to move veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to safety next season.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie will move to safety, where he will compete with starter Darian Thompson for playing time.
“All I need is a chance,” Rodgers-Cromartie told NFL Network.
New general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur will be taking steps to improve the secondary in 2018. The Giants finished 28th in points allowed (24.2 per game), 31st in yards allowed (373.2) and 31st in pass defense (252.4) last season.
Rodgers-Cromartie, who turns 32 in April, has spent his 10-year NFL career as a cornerback. Last season, he made 48 tackles with no interceptions in 15 games. For his career, he has 30 interceptions, including six in 2016.
