Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers Cromartie is suspended

"He came in today, chose to leave. we will suspend him".

The New York Giants are an absolute mess, and the news about cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie leaving the team/being suspended is the latest bit of gasoline on top of the dumpster fire.

According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Rodgers-Cromartie had a conversation with McAdoo on Tuesday and again on Wednesday, when he ultimately made a decision to leave practice shortly after he got there. Rodgers-Cromartie felt he was being a "good soldier" by taking the slot cornerback role, according to Rapoport, and the rift blew up amid the loss and apparently dragged into the conversation McAdoo had with Rodgers-Cromartie on Tuesday. "For that, we'll suspend him".

The injury-plagued Giants lost to the Chargers, 27-22, Sunday to drop to 0-5. McAdoo repeatedly refused to provide any other details about the situation. Janoris Jenkins also left the game early but it hasn't been said why.

Rodgers-Cromartie tallied 26 combined tackles and a half-sack across the first five contests.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, this rift occurred as a result of some outburst from DRC on the sidelines during Sunday's loss to the Chargers. But having a veteran leave the team suddenly during the week after a possible "altercation" with the head coach ... this season can't end soon enough for the Giants. Rodgers-Cromartie's base salary this season is $6.98 million, meaning his suspension could potentially cost him more than $436,000 per game.
