Rodgers-Cromartie returns to the NFL after retiring last year

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Free agent Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has decided to come out of retirement. He “retired” during Week 7 with the Oakland Raiders last season.

He “retired” during that Week 7 game because he did not play a single snap in the contest. With Oakland very bad last season, it could have just used retirement as a scapegoat to get out of the toxic situation.

Rodgers-Cromartie will be 33-years-old in April. He had little interest last off-season before signing with the Raiders.

The Bradentown, Florida native has played for five NFL teams in his career. Before signing with the Raiders, he played with the New York Giants, Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, and Denver Broncos.

Last season, he appeared in seven games with the Raiders with just one start. He had eight tackles with one forced fumble and two pass deflections.

The Cardinals first-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft last suited for the Raiders on Oct. 28 against the Indianapolis Colts. He last played for Oakland at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 14 when he had two tackles.
