The 31-year-old is in his 10th National Football League season and fourth with the Giants, having also played for the Denver Broncos (2013), Philadelphia Eagles (2011-12) and Arizona Cardinals (2008-2010).
Head coach Ben McAdoo said he spoke with Rodgers-Cromartie on Tuesday, and that Rodgers-Cromartie was at the team's facility on Wednesday morning and attended team meetings and later made a decision to leave.
McAdoo said Rodgers-Cromartie came to the team's facility Wednesday but chose to leave. It was after that departure that McAdoo decided the benching would grow into a suspension.
McAdoo told Rodgers-Cromartie that he would be inactive for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos due to his actions, resulting in Rodgers-Cromartie walking out once again.
Per the league's collective bargaining agreement, a team-imposed "indefinite suspension" can last anywhere from one to four weeks.
"DRC came in [Tuesday]". That is, until today, when the team chose to suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. "He came in today, chose to leave. we will suspend him".
Rodgers-Cromartie isn't the only issue going on at cornerback for the drama-filled Giants. The 2016 second-team All-Pro corner returned to the sidelines during the game but his decision to leave the team's facility on Wednesday was reportedly the last straw. He came into the building [Wednesday] morning. "I left [because] I felt what he said was BS".
The 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie is in the midst of his fourth season with the G-Men, and he has registered 26 tackles, 0.5 sacks and no interceptions for 0-5 NY.
