Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie apologizes for making fun of the Eagles

New, comments

The Giants are backing off their trash talk.

The New York Giants haven't been shy to get involved in trash talk heading up to their Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football. Giants safety Antrel Rolle said the Eagles, who won the division crown in 2013 and are currently in first place, aren't the team to beat in the NFC East. Later, New York cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (a former member of the Eagles) and Prince Amukamara were seen posing with a Giants super-fan in a picture that was meant to taunt Philadelphia's lack of Super Bowl rings.

To the delight of Ed Valentine from Big Blue View, it appears now that the G-men have backed off of their shenanigans. Rolle says he didn't mean any disrespect to the Eagles with his comments.

Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin weighed in on Rolle's original comments on Wednesday, simply saying: "He talks a lot. He talks too much."

But Rolle wasn't the only player to save face. DRC, who is actually without a Super Bowl ring himself, actually took to Twitter to apologize for the picture.

Intended disrespect or not, it's a little funny to see these New York players retreat so quickly.
