In looking at Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie's contract with Washington, he's clearly no lock to make the final roster. There's no guaranteed money, which means the Redskins could cut him with no penalty. He won't make a dime unless he makes the 53-man roster. If he does, he'll receive a $45,000 bonus and then have a base salary of $1.03 million. In New York, Rodgers-Cromartie had a good reputation for how he dealt with the young defensive backs. Considering Washington has three corners entering their second year that should help. Josh Norman is not that sort of mentor for the young players. If one of those young corners, notably Adonis Alexander, shows great improvement -- or if they somehow drafted a corner in the early rounds -- the Redskins could always move on from Norman and his $14.5 million cap hit with veteran insurance. Such talk is premature and also relies on Rodgers-Cromartie having something to offer. For now, he's just a low-cost signing.
