Ex-Giant Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says...


For those of you who thought you saw the last of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, think again. The 35-year-old former Pro Bowl cornerback is back seeking employment in the NFL.

Rodgers-Cromarite last played in 2019 for Washington, a gig that ended after two weeks as DRC landed on season-ending injured reserve with torn ligaments in his ankle. He did not play in 2020.

DRC began his career with the Arizona Cardinals, who selected him with the 16th overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft out of Tennessee State. He went on to play for the Philadelphia Eagles and Denver Broncos before inking a five-year, $35 million deal with the New York Giants in 2014.

DRC was named to his second Pro Bowl in 2015 and was released by the Giants in a cost-cutting move after the 2017 season. He signed with the Oakland Raiders in 2018 but retired after seven games. He came out of retirement to play for Washington the next year.

In January, DRC signed on to be a voluntary coach at his alma mater where former NFL star running back Eddie George was recently named head coach and Hue Jackson the offensive coordinator.
