Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie doesn't plan, or want, to pack up his locker again.

Trade speculation has swirled around the cornerback since the Giants suspended him for a game earlier this season, and chatter has picked up ahead of Tuesday's NFL trade deadine after Rodgers-Cromartie played 16 of 76 snaps in the Giants' Oct. 22 loss to the Seahawks.

Still, Rodgers-Cromartie reported back to work Monday after the bye week in high spirits, and he plans to be here for the duration.

"Do I worry about that? It doesn't even come to my mind," Rodgers-Cromartie said about 27 hours ahead of the 4 p.m. Eastern deadline. "I don't think about that. That's out of my control. I'm just trying to fit in here. I ain't going nowhere. I don't even get into that."

Does Rodgers-Cromartie expect to be on the field Wednesday when the Giants return to practice after Tuesday's day off?

"Yes sir, where am I going to go? I ain't packed up," he said. "Ain't no trade over here."

Rodgers-Cromartie's sentiments were echoed by linebacker Jonathan Casillas and running back Shane Vereen, two other veterans who have been mentioned as potential assets for the 1-6 Giants to sell off to contending teams in order to gain extra draft picks and free up cap space. Rodgers-Cromartie's case is a different, though, because of his profile.
