Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is a talented, proven starter at a position that is always in demand. What’s more, he is a free agent at season’s end, and he is only 27 years old.
However, he has reportedly at least given thought to stepping away from football if Denver wins the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Numerous reporters took to Twitter Monday afternoon to report that Rodgers-Cromartie has indicated he’s at least thought of calling it quits after this season.
“I set a goal of five years, I’ve played six,” Rodgers-Cromartie said Monday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Via Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, Rodgers-Cromartie indicated that any intent to retire was “not set in stone.”
The suspicion here is that this is not the last we’ve heard of this story this week.
