Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s retirement did not last long. The corner, who announced his retirement throughout the season, signed up a yearlong handle the Washington Redskins, reuniting with former team mate Landon Collins and providing veteran insurance.
Rodgers-Cromartie had announced his retirement by Instagram in October after spending seven matches with the Oakland Raiders. However he’d said on March 7 which he wished to continue playing and the Redskins provides that opportunity.
The Redskins had pursued him last offseason also, however Rodgers-Cromartie wanted to wait and Washington instead signed Orlando Scandrick. The Redskins published Scandrick in Circle. Rodgers-Cromartie was attractive for Washington this past year because of his versatility. The Redskins wanted some one who could play either in the slot or outside or maybe refuge in a pinch.
Washington lacked a veteran backup corner in 2018 and it hurt them. The Redskins had three rookies as copies and suffered from growing distress in several matches, especially with veteran Quinton Dunbar slowed by a nerve difficulty in his leg which finally landed him on injured reserve. The Redskins have Josh Norman, who has a 14.5 million salary cap hit in 2013, also third year corner-back Fabian Moreau, who started from the slot.
Rodgers-Cromartie turns 33 in April therefore it is uncertain just how much he has left. He was Oakland for seven matches but did not play in two. He left one beginning, but did not play with the following week and then announced his retirement. Rodgers-Cromartie was a first-round selection by Arizona in 2008 and played with the Cardinals. He spent 3 years together with Collins, whom the Redskins signed earlier this week.
