Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie wants to play in 2019, despite announcing his retirement from the NFL in October.
According to NFL Network, which cited unidentified sources, the 32-year-old has officially unretired and has been reinstated by the league. The report added the cornerback is “going to draw some interest” from teams in his return.
Rodgers-Cromartie is hopeful to play next season after his abrupt departure in Week 8 while playing for the Raiders following a 1-6 start last season. He went from starting and playing 53 snaps in Week 6 for Oakland to seeing zero in his final game in Week 8, recording eight tackles and one forced fumble in 2018.
A two-time Pro Bowl corner, Rodgers-Cromartie was selected 16th overall by the Cardinals out of the 2008 draft. He played three seasons with Arizona before he was traded to the Eagles in 2011. He spent one season with the Broncos before landing with the Giants for four seasons.
Throughout his career, Rodgers-Cromartie posted 451 combined tackles and forced seven fumbles. He made it to two Super Bowls with Arizona and Denver.
