The New York Giants secondary has gotten a lot stronger in the past couple of days.

A year after missing the playoffs for the second straight season, the Giants continued to be a player in free agency, signing cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, formerly with Denver.

Terms of the contract were not immediately available.

The deal comes just a day after the Giants confirmed the signing of former Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond and Chiefs safety Quintin Demps.

"The main thing, bringing in guys from Kansas City, Seattle, you can see what they’re doing, trying to bring guys that are going to come in and lead by example," said Rodgers-Cromartie, who started in the Super Bowl along with Thurmond. "That’s always a plus."

A 2008 first round-draft choice and 2009 Pro Bowler, Rodgers-Cromartie is entering his seventh NFL season. He has also been with Arizona and Philadelphia, playing with safety Antrel Rolle while with the Cardinals.

Rodgers-Cromartie has played in 92 regular-season games with 75 starts and has started all nine postseason games in which he played. His career totals include 239 tackles (205 solo) and 19 interceptions. He joined the Broncos last season as a free agent and played in 15 regular-season games with 13 starts at right cornerback.

Around the league

Cowboys • Dallas added free-agent Brandon Weeden on a two-year contract Monday even though the Cowboys expect Kyle Orton to return behind Tony Romo next season. Weeden, a first-round pick by Cleveland in 2012, was released by the Browns last week.
