Rodgers-Cromartie may retire if Broncos win Super Bowl
Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is set to cash in during free agency this offseason. That doesn’t mean the 27-year-old cornerback isn’t considering early retirement.
Rodgers-Cromartie, who was selected in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft, reportedly told himself that he set a goal of playing five years in the league. Now that he’s played six seasons, he has given thought to retiring if the Broncos win the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Seahawks.
In fact, Rodgers-Cromartie has gone as far as telling his teammates that he’s pondering an early exit.
"They think I’m joking," Rodgers-Cromartie said via USA Today’s Lindsay Jones.
The Broncos signed the 6-foot-2, 193-pound cornerback to a one-year, $4 million deal last March. He could be one of the most appealing players at his position outside of the Patriots’ Aqib Talib and the Titans’ Alterraun Verner.
