Rodgers-Cromartie logged two solo tackles and a forced fumble in Sunday's 45-42 overtime win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie had been bothered by a minor hamstring issue earlier in the week, but he was able to play 28 defensive snaps and force a turnover in the process. He'll continue to provide depth at cornerback behind Rashaan Melvin and Gareon Conley in Week 5 against the Chargers.

Rodgers-Cromartie (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie serves as a depth cornerback in Oakland's secondary, so his availability shouldn't have a large impact on Week 4's game. The severity of the veteran's injury remains undisclosed, and he could be a game-time decision.

Rodgers-Cromartie signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie slides into a revamped Raiders' cornerback group that also added free agents Rashaan Melvin, Daryl Worley, Leon Hall, Shareece Wright and fourth-round pick Nick Nelson this spring. DRC seems unlikely to play in Friday's preseason game against the Packers with such a quick turnaround, but could easily be ready to suit up for the preseason finale next week.

Rodgers-Cromartie had a workout with the Raiders on Wednesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie was released by the Giants in March after being unable to agree on a pay reduction, and somewhat surprisingly remains a free agent with the regular season only a couple weeks away. The 32-year-old played 15 games with New York last season and went without an interception for the first time since 2011, while adding only one pass breakup.

The Giants have informed Rodgers-Cromatie of his release, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants asked Rodgers-Cromatie to take a pay cut and apparently weren't able to work anything out. Set to celebrate his 32nd birthday in April, the veteran cornerback shouldn't have too much trouble landing a contract from another team, as he's still capable of working outside or in the slot, even if he's not quite the player he once was. DRC's release increases the odds of the Giants re-signing Ross Cockrell, along with hinting at a desire to give 2016 first-round pick Eli Apple another shot. Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is the only safe bet among the team's remaining cornerbacks.

The Giants are asking Rodgers-Cromartie to take a sizable pay cut for the 2018 season, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie is due a $6.48 million base salary for 2018 and is set for a cap hit of $8.5 million. The veteran cornerback was being considered for a move to safety this offseason as well, but it appears his time with the Giants could be nearing an end if the two sides are unable to come to terms on a lesser salary.

Rodgers-Cromartie may not actually be switching from safety to cornerback, Paul Schwartz of The New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it may be under consideration, the Giants reportedly haven't made any final decisions on a position change. Rodgers-Cromartie mostly made news last season for his dispute with former Giants coach Ben McAdoo, notably garnering a team-imposed suspension for one game in October. Despite finishing the year without any interceptions in 15 games, the veteran remains an asset at his natural position of cornerback, capable of playing both outside and in the slot. The Giants may want to see how DRC looks at safety, but that doesn't mean they're ready to commit to a position change before offseason workouts have even begun. There's also some chance the team releases Rodgers-Cromatie, as he'll turn 32 in April and has a $6.48 million base salary for 2018.

Rodgers-Cromartie will move over to safety in 2018, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a new coaching staff at the helm comes tweaks and alterations, one of which being Rodgers-Cromartie's position change. As of right now, it looks as if he'll compete for a starting job against Darian Thompson but there's a long way to go before any marginal roster decisions need to be made. The 31-year-old failed to register an interception last season while playing cornerback.
