Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is trying to call his shot and go out like John Elway.
Rodgers-Cromartie, said he is seriously contemplating retirement if the Broncos win Super Bowl XLVIII, according to Around The League.
#Broncos CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says he may retire if the Broncos win. For real. “I set a goal of 5 years, I’ve played six.”

It’s odd timing considering he is coming off perhaps his best NFL season and was set to make a huge amount of money on the free-agent market.
Teams of course will now be concerned about his passion for the game, or lack thereof. Cromartie says he’s leaned on teammates for advice about his future.
“I talk to them all the time,” he said. “It’s not set in stone. I always tell them. They always think I be joking, but I always just say it might be my last go-round.”
