We had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in today, chose to leave.

New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo announced Wednesday the team will suspend cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

When asked further questions, McAdoo repeatedly declined to give any more information on the suspension, including the subject of his conversation with Rodgers-Cromartie and the length of the suspension.

According to the team on Twitter, Rodgers-Cromartie showed up to work on Wednesday and then made a decision to tell the team he was leaving (!?!). "We will suspend him", McAdoo said.

According to a report from Art Stapleton of The Record, the DRC-McAdoo argument was over Rodgers-Cromartie not agreeing with his role.

Rodgers-Cromartie told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Wednesday that he is coming back "tomorrow".

At 0-5 on the season, the team just recently lost wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Dwyane Harris for the season. Janoris Jenkins also left the game early but it hasn't been said why. On WFAN, NFL Network's Mike Francesa said Rodgers-Cromartie took off his pads at halftime and declared he was done playing, according to the New York Post. If the Giants cut him, he would carry $2 million in dead cap space for 2018, a savings of $6.5 million. After the Giants demoted Eli Apple for Rodgers-Cromartie last Sunday, Apple wasn't happy and said he was a scapegoat. Apple vented to reporters after the loss to the Chargers about "the whole culture" of the Giants.
