Redskins Place CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie On IR, Sign DE/OLB Noah Spence

The Washington Redskins are placing CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on injured reserve Wednesday to make room for DE/OLB  Noah Spence who has been signed to a contract, per JP Finlay

Washington brought Spence in for a workout last week.

Rodgers-Cromartie, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2008. He played for the Eagles, Broncos, Giants and before signing on with the Raiders back in August of last year. 

Rodgers-Cromartie retired last year before returning to the NFL this offseason and signing on with the Redskins. 

In 2019, Rodgers-Cromartie has appeared in two games for the Redskins and recorded seven tackles and no interceptions.

Spence, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $6.03 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1.27 million for the 2019 season when the Buccaneers waived him coming out of the preseason.

The Bears and Bills also brought Spence in for workouts but he left both teams without a contract. 

In 2018, Spence appeared in 12 games for the Buccaneers and recorded three tackles and no sacks.
