Rodgers-Cromartie may retire if Broncos win Super Bowl

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was selected 16th overall by the Cardinals in the 2008 NFL Draft.

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.
