Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Broncos' top cover cornerback last season, has signed a five-year contract with the New York Giants.

Rodgers-Cromartie became a Giant only after negotiations with the Broncos broke down last Tuesday. When Rodgers-Cromartie balked at a six-year, $54 million deal, the Broncos instead signed cornerback Aqib Talib to a six-year, $57 million contract.

ESPN has reported Rodgers-Cromartie's deal with the Giants is worth $39 million with $15 million guaranteed. Both of those figures, however, could be inflated with difficult-to-reach escalators and guarantees limited to injury.

Former Broncos return ace Trindon Holliday also agreed to terms with the Giants, according to ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
