Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s “retirement” lasted less than five months.
The Redskins announced Friday they have signed the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 32-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie announced on Instagram Oct. 30 he was retiring from the NFL, stepping down after seven games with the Raiders when his playing time dwindled.
Selected by the Cardinals with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, Rodgers-Cromartie has been remarkably durable, appearing in at least 15 games in nine of his 11 seasons. He has also played with the Eagles, Broncos and Giants.
Rodgers-Cromartie has 30 career interceptions, 451 tackles (394 solo) and 146 passes defensed.
The move continues the remake of the Redskins’ secondary. Washington signed safety Landon Collins earlier this week to a six-year, $84 million contract, but lost Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in free agency to Chicago.
