The move comes one day after NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported DRC was asked by the new Giants regime to take a “significant pay cut” from his $6.5 million salary for the 2018 season. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added that Rodgers-Cromartie was also asked to move to safety, but the corner will instead test the open market as an outside cornerback.
Former Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman spent just one day on the market before signing an incentive-laden deal with the San Francisco 49ers . Sans Sherman, Malcolm Butler , Trumaine Johnson , Bashaud Breeland , E.J. Gaines , Brent Grimes , Morris Claiborne and Prince Amukamara lead this season’s free-agent cornerback class. Of those top talents, the 31-year-old?DRC is older than all of them but Grimes.
What does this mean for the Bills? : It wasn’t difficult to see Taylor’s departure coming. He was a candidate to be cut last spring before restructuring his contract with the team. The writing on the wall got even darker when he was benched for Peterman in Week 11 despite a 5-4 record. While Taylor would return to mark 14 starts on the season and help get the Bills to the playoffs for the first time since 1999, the franchise’s lack of faith in him meant his days in New York were numbered.
The Chargers have great edge?rushers in Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, plus?a shutdown corner anchoring their secondary in Casey Hayward. Their 3-4 defense, however, is one speedy,?playmaking linebacker away from being truly elite. Evans?would be a huge?asset against?the pass, both in coverage and in blitz packages.
The Seahawks need to end their nightmare of duct-taping the offensive line and trying to solve problems by?moving players around. McGlinchey’s athleticism will allow him to be a rock of a right tackle for the long haul.
