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.

    Nobody will sign him until they are able to do a thorough physical. Might have to wait to sign.

  2. Just wants to get on a payroll before rolling his ankle again. Makes sense. Unlikely that any buyer will get even a season of value out DRC at this point. Defensive backs age fastest of all positions in the NFL (running backs a close second).

    Not to poke fun at anybody but I would think that all NFL players would wanna play next season

    I find it so amusing how guys who know little to none at all about football to make opinions about a hall of fame type guy who has 30 career int and 6 for td. Your fav corner right now will not finish his career with even 25 int. I think he once was a great player who needs to play safety with his speed and IQ he could be atop 10 free safety for another few years. I have seen this type of player before if he can get focus he will be a steal for a team that is tight with the cap..
