Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Wants To Play Next Season

While Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has flirted with retirement in the past, it sounds like the veteran has no intentions of hanging up his cleats. The defensive back told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he wants to play in 2020 (Twitter link).

“It’s still easy and I still don’t see anyone out running me,” Rodgers-Cromartie told Anderson. “I just happened to get hurt. I still got too much left in me. I got to end the right way.”

DRC announced his retirement midway through the 2018 season, but he ended up walking that back before signing with the Redskins last offseason. The 33-year-old only got into a pair of games (one start) for his new team, compiling seven tackles. He landed on the injured reserve in September after tearing a ligament in his ankle.

In total, Rodgers-Cromartie has appeared in 162 regular season games in parts of 12 NFL seasons. The 2008 first-round pick has made a pair of Pro Bowls during his career.
