The New York Giants have signed cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Rodgers-Cromartie landed a five-year deal worth $35 million from the Giants after reportedly turning down a six-year deal worth $54 million from the Denver Broncos before free agency started.
The Giants must not be worried about the retirement talk from Rodgers-Cromartie during Super Bowl week.
CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reached agreement with the New York Giants on a five-year deal, per source.

General manager Jerry Resse has patched up the Giants secondary re-signing Trumaine McBride and Stevie Brown, while adding Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond III, and Quintin Demps.
The 27-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie operated like a shutdown corner last season for the Broncos picking off three passes and allowing just a touchdown over the Broncos final 14 games.
