ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — TheDenver Broncos on Wednesday evening agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on a one-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced.

Rodgers-Cromartie (6-2, 182 pounds) is a sixth-year player who started 62-of-77 regular-season games during his first five NFL seasons with Arizona (2008-10) and Philadelphia (2011-12), totaling 198 tackles (170 solo), one sack (7 yds.), 16 interceptions (334 yds.), 98 knockdowns and three forced fumbles.

In six postseason starts, he owns 26 tackles (24 solo), three interceptions (13 yds.) and eight knockdowns.

A 16-game starter in three of his five years in the NFL and a Pro Bowl selection following the 2009 season, he is tied for second in the league with 83 passes defensed since his rookie season in 2008, according to press box totals.

Drafted in the first round (16th overall) by the Cardinals in 2008, Rodgers-Cromartie played collegiately at Tennessee State University, where he was a two-time All-American and a three-time All-Ohio Valley first-team selection.

He was an all-area, All-Class 5A and All-District 11 defensive back and wide receiver at Lakewood Ranch (Fla.) High School. Dominique Reshard Rodgers-Cromartie was born on April 7, 1986, in Bradenton, Fla.
