Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says he could retire if the Broncos win the Super Bowl
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is nearing the end of his sixth year in the NFL, and at 27 years old, he’s arguably in the prime of his football career. Plus, after two forgetable seasons with the Eagles, he’s reestablished himself as one of the best cornerbacks in the league in his first year with the Broncos.
Rodgers-Cromartie said Monday that he’s considering retiring after the Super Bowl if the Broncos beat the Seahawks. He said his goal was to play five years in the NFL. He’s played six, and that might be enough for him.
“After the first contract [a five-year, $15.1 million deal with the Cardinals in 2008], I got a one-year deal, and it’s hard to get another [big-money] deal,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “Just from being around, I’ve seen a lot of guys get to the point I am right now, and it’s hard. You have to start thinking about life after football.”
