The Redskins agreed to a new contract with veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Friday.
An 11-year pro that played parts of last season with the Raiders, Rodgers-Cromartie signed a one-year contract with the Redskins after a free agent visit in the morning.
Terms were not immediately disclosed, but expect the deal to be team friendly with game play incentives.
A first-round draft pick in 2008, Rodgers has played for five NFL teams in his career. From 2014 to 2017, DRC played with the Giants and teamed up with Landon Collins. Washington signed Collins earlier this week to a major, six-year $84 million deal.
He will turn 33 in April, and at this stage of his career the Redskins can't expect Rodgers-Cromartie to play on the outside as a cornerback. His experience and versatility could allow him to play the inside slot cornerback role in the nickel or even some safety in certain packages.
In 2015, teamed up with Collins in New York, DRC made the Pro Bowl playing in a variety of roles. Another Pro Bowl bid seems unlikely, but for a team that needs depth and experience in the secondary, this signing could make sense.
