Super Bowl week is in full swing and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has already created a huge headline for the big game. On Monday, according to CBSSportsline.com, Rodgers-Cromartie told the NFL network that he would contemplate retirement if the Broncos won Sunday’s game.

However, Sportsline.com reported that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has had a change of heart on Tuesday. Originally, DRC stated that he had set a goal of playing in the NFL for five years. As people will soon find out, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has already played six seasons.

Now it seems the DRC will accept a long term deal by the Broncos if it’s offered. Whether or not people misunderstood his statement about a pending retirement, there’s no question that the game takes a toll on its players.

Rodgers-Cromartie is 27 years old and he will be performing in his second Super Bowl. The first one came as a member of the Arizona Cardinals in 2009. Arizona lost one of the greatest Super Bowl finishes to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A few years later, Rodgers-Cromartie found himself with the Philadelphia Eagles. Now he’s with the Denver Broncos hoping to earn the coveted Lombardi Trophy.

In six seasons, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has 19 interceptions and five touchdowns. In his first season with Denver, DRC has helped shore up the secondary and he will be a major factor if the Broncos win the Super Bowl.
