The Giant Insider Online

Giants’ CB Sam Beal’s rookie year is done before it even gets started

New York Giants training camp kicked off on Wednesday with a bang, but not the kind of bang fans were hoping for. This was the kind of bang that is followed by a body dropping. That body, as it turns out, was that of rookie cornerback Sam Beal, whom the Giants spent a 2019 third-round pick on in in the NFL Supplemental Draft a few weeks ago.

Beal has reportedly been ruled out for the entire 2018 season with a shoulder injury, and that puts the Giants right back where they were three weeks ago at the cornerback position — Janoris Jenkins, Eli Apple and pray for rain.

There could be one solution, and the Giants are likely thinking hard about it today, and that’s bringing back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who they released in March as a cap casualty, saving them $6.5 million.

Rodgers-Cromartie is still unsigned and is hoping to end up in an NFL camp this summer. He has met with the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints, and told reporters before the summer that he could have signed with a team already but was advised to wait.

Well, maybe his waiting is over. The Giants feel they replaced Rodgers-Cromartie with the likes of William Gay, and were hoping guys like Curtis Riley and Beal would lend a hand as well, but now they are clearly back in the market for an experienced cornerback.
