Contract details:

Free agent (and recently retired) cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has agreed to sign with the Redskins this afternoon. Rodgers-Cromartie, age 32, is an eleven-year NFL vet, having played in 160 games for the Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, and Oakland Raiders. “DRC” announced his retirement on October 30, 2018 after week 8 of this past season, but has decided to return to the NFL and will reunite with Landon Collins in the Redskins’ defensive backfield, whom he played with in New York from 2015-2017.

Rodgers-Cromartie is a two-time Pro Bowler (2009 in Arizona, 2015 with the Giants) who has tallied 451 career tackles, 30 interceptions, and has forced 7 fumbles. He has also been a durable player for the vast majority of his career, having played in 15 or more games in every season, except for last year in Oakland that ended with his mid-season retirement. Originally Rodgers-Cromartie was selected 16th overall in by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2008 NFL Draft.
