The NFL’s free agency period brought with it plenty of headlines. Star players such as Earl Thomas and Le’Veon Bell signed with new teams after missing portions of the 2018 season – for very different reasons.
Quarterback Nick Foles finally had enough of the sideline in Philadelphia and signed a significant deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who released Blake Bortles. Even retired players are getting in on the action.
Former New York Giants corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie announced his retirement during the 2018 season. Just a few months later, he announced his plans to return to the field in 2019.
A few days later, he landed on a new team.
According to a report from Ian Rapoport, Rodgers-Cromartie is headed to the Washington Redskins.

He’ll join former teammate Landon Collins, who signed a massive six-year, $84 million deal with the Redskins earlier this week, in the Washington backfield.
DMC signed with the Raiders before the 2018 season, but announced his retirement after just seven games.
The former first-round pick didn’t wait long to get back in the game, however. He’s now headed to his sixth different NFL organization.
Washington has been busy in free agency, trading for quarterback Case Keenum and landing Collins earlier this week.
