"Thank you to the Arizona Cardinals and Coach Whisenhunt for allowing me the opportunity to play for such a great organization. I will always be appreciative of the time I spent in Arizona; it's where I began my Professional career. The three years there taught me invaluable lessons about the game of football, all of which prepared me for this pivotal point in my career. As I grow my game and move into my fourth year in the league, I am looking forward to joining the Philadelphia Eagles defense and playing along side and learning from one of the best corners in the game, Asante Samuel. Coach Reid, the Eagles organization and the community of Philadelphia are welcoming me with open arms, creating an avenue for me to play my best game yet! I'm ready to get to work and a become a great asset for Philly; bringing home a NFC Championship and Superbowl title is my number one priority!" --Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Dominique thanks his family, friends and fans for their continued support. He is excited and looking forward to what the future holds.
