Free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is spending the night in New York so he can undergo a physical Monday with the New York Giants, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Rodgers-Cromartie met with the Giants on Sunday; however, there is no agreement in place.

Rodgers-Cromartie spent this past season with the Denver Broncos, and previously played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.

The Broncos gave Rodgers-Cromartie the tough-love approach when they signed him last March. The defensive coaches, especially defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, said they would coach him hard to get him to play better.

Rodgers-Cromartie said that was what he was looking for, and he was better this past season for the Broncos than he had played in his two years with the Eagles. He tied for the team lead in interceptions with three and played, for the most part, in the right cornerback spot.

Del Rio did match him on specific receivers at times, but not often.

Rodgers-Cromartie originally signed what went into the books as a two-year deal with the Broncos, but the second year voided five days after the Super Bowl, so he became an unrestricted free agent.

Rodgers-Cromartie also met Saturday with the New York Jets. In addition, the Giants have reached agreement on a one-year contract with former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond.
