DRC is back in the NFC East

Retirement was short.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie — who turns 33 in April — is coming out of retirement to play for the Washington Redskins, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Washington marks DRC’s third stop with an NFC East team. The Eagles obviously traded for him back in 2011. He spent two seasons with Philadelphia before joining the Broncos in 2013. DRC then signed with the Giants in 2014 and remained with New York through 2017. DRC signed with the Raiders in 2018 but retired halfway through the season since Oakland was terrible.

In Washington, DRC will be reunited with former Giants safety Landon Collins. Maybe they can relive the glory days of winning 20 out of 48 games during their three seasons together in New York.

Maybe DRC can sign with the Cowboys next year to make a full cycle through the division. He’s a few years younger than Jason Witten, after all.

UPDATE: It’s funny because BGN’s Dave Mangels wrote this about Washington back on Monday:

Did they sign a retired guy?

Not yet but never count out Bruce Allen.
