After stirring things up about by mentioning that he would consider retiring if the Broncos won the Super Bowl, impending free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reiterated that he is not considering retirement and wants to be back in Denver next year, per Vic Lombardi.

Lombardi considers re-signing Rodgers-Cromartie to a contract extension to be the Broncos “top free agency priority.”

We’ve mentioned numerous times in the past few weeks that the Broncos will have a difficult offseason ahead of them seeing as they have a number players to address including free agents and extension candidates.

According to Pro Football Focus, Rodgers-Cromartie ranked as the No. 5 overall cornerback in the NFL this season, which is a big deal considering that he is likely to be one of the most sought after free agents on the open market.

Given his age, 27, Rodgers-Cromartie should be able to come close to the over $23 million guaranteed received by free agents Cortland Finnegan and Johnathan Joseph in recent years. Brandon Carr set the high market for the cornerback position at $25.5 million guaranteed a few years ago.

We have Rodgers-Cromartie listed as the No. 8 overall player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
