He will turn 33 in April, and at this stage of his career the Redskins can’t expect Rodgers-Cromartie to play on the outside as a cornerback. His experience and versatility could allow him to play the inside slot cornerback role in the nickel or even some safety in certain packages

“He’s not a guy you want manned up in the slot; that’s not where you put him,” Bowen said. “If you did that as a coach, you’re not doing your job. His value is playing top down on the ball.

Justin Houston: Houston is definitely the premier player that won’t factor into the compensatory formula on the open market at any position. He’s arguably the top pass rusher still out there so his contract will take some maneuvering if the Redskins want to fit him in, but he would fill their need off the EDGE. Houston was drafted the same year as Ryan Kerrigan and has had a similarly productive career. He peaked with a 22 sack season back in 2014, and has failed to get back to double digits since then.
