Broncos Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie may retire if they win Super Bowl

Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said he may go ahead and retire if the Broncos win the Super Bowl on Sunday.  Apparently, Cromartie set a goal of 5 years and he is in his sixth.  Usually, players set a goal of 5 years because that means they have secured a pension from the NFL, so Cromartie may be happy to secure that and still be healthy as he leaves the game of football.

It remains to be seen if he will go through with this as the grind of the NFL is difficult, but still tends to be much better than working a day job.  Perhaps Cromartie has been really smart with his money and can afford it, but he would potentially be leaving a decent amount of money on the table if he were to retire.  If he can do it and has the wealth to live a long and happy life, more power to him.

In the meantime, Cromartie has to try to stop the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers including Percy Harvin, who should be healthy and ready to play this week.
