Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reported to the Giants facility on Thursday morning and met with head coach Ben McAdoo, and it was determined the veteran cornerback would be suspended indefinitely, the team announced.
The NFL collective bargaining agreement limits a player to be suspended a maximum four weeks before the team must release him or reinstate him. Rodgers-Cromartie can also appeal the ban through the players’ association.
McAdoo told Rodgers-Cromartie on Tuesday he would be inactive for this Sunday’s game in Denver due to an argument on the sideline during last Sunday’s loss to the Chargers. Rodgers-Cromartie then left the facility on Wednesday disgusted with the coach’s decision and comments, drawing a suspension from the coach.
Rodgers-Cromartie called McAdoo’s message “BS” on Wednesday.
NFL Network reported just before 10 a.m. that Rodgers-Cromartie already had spoken to GM Jerry Reese about “the post-suspension fallout” and had planned to talk to McAdoo soon afterward.
