Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie backs off retirement talk

Denver Broncos OTAs at Dove Valley
Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie backed off his retirement talk during Tuesday’s media day saying he was looking for a long-term contract instead.

On Monday Rodgers-Cromartie told reporters that if the Broncos won Super Bowl 48; he would consider retiring. That notion seemed a little far fetched to begin with and now Rodgers-Cromartie has quickly distanced himself from it.

Just 27, Rodgers-Cromartie is coming off what many would consider the best season of his career. Pro Football Focus ranked him as a top-four cover guy. He is set to hit free agency after the Super Bowl.

Champ Baily remains the most likely member of the Broncos to retire after the Super Bowl.
