Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Not Working Out For Seahawks, Due To Family Matter


Free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie tells Josina Anderson that he is not in Seattle for a workout with the Seahawks on Sunday, due to a family matter.

“Nah, I’m home,” Rodgers-Cromartie said in a text to Anderson.

Rodgers-Cromartie has been connected to the Seahawks in recent weeks along with the Chargers, who lost Jason Verrett for the season.

Last month, Rodgers-Cromartie told a group of Giants reporters that he planned to wait until closer to the season to sign with a new team. Rodgers-Cromartie added that multiple teams have contacted him and expressed interest.

Rodgers-Cromartie visited with the Redskins earlier this offseason but left without an agreement in place.

Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2008. He was in the final year of his five-year, $35 million contract that included $13.98 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $6.48 million for the 2018 season when the Giants released him in a move that freed up $6.5 million of available cap space.

In 2017, Rodgers-Cromartie appeared in 15 games and recorded 48 tackles, a half sack, no interceptions and pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 58 cornerback out of 120 qualifying players.
