Free agent defensive back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie signs with the New York Giants on a reported five-year deal.

The New York Giants have confirmed that they have signed free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Rodgers-Cromartie was allowed to test the free-agent market by the Denver Broncos, but was close to agreeing a new deal with the club before they signed Aqib Talib.

After that deal fell through, the Giants stepped up their chase and have landed the signature of the 27-year-old on a reported five-year deal worth $39m (£23m).

Rodgers-Cromartie told the club's official website: "I'm glad to be here. Especially with Antrel [Rolle] and talking with the defensive coaches and the staff and even coach Tom [Coughlin], just talking with them, it's going to be good."

The 27-year-old recorded 31 tackles and three interceptions in the 2013 season.
