The Redskins signed corner Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie to a contract Friday, reuniting him with former New York Giants teammate Landon Collins. Rodgers-Cromartie had announced his retirement during the season after playing seven games for the Oakland Raiders. He gives Washington another veteran presence at corner. Last season the Redskins' only corners with any legitimate experience were Josh Norman and Quinton Dunbar. Norman carries a $14.5 million cap hit this season and while sources say he remains in Washington's plans, Rodgers-Cromartie does provide insurance should they want to go with a younger starter yet still have veterans around in case they falter. But there's a ways to go before reaching that point.

Landon Collins said he wasn't surprised the Giants traded Odell Beckham; he could see the direction New York was taking. But he said Beckham will leave a void as a teammate.

Here's the breakdown on running back Adrian Peterson's contract: He'll receive $1.5 million to sign with a $1.03 million base salary. In 2020, Peterson will have a $2.25 million base salary with up to $250,000 in bonuses for being on the 46-man roster. Peterson has $1.5 million in incentives each season. A lot of that will depend on the health -- and subsequent role -- of running back Derrius Guice, coming off a torn ACL. It's a good deal for a 34-year-old back because it reflects Peterson's possible role; he'll be paid accordingly if he's a backup or as a starter because of the incentives.

All Day is All Payday, too. Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson, who is re-signing with the team on a two-year deal, has career earnings of $98,721,471, according to overthecap.com. Peterson, selected seventh overall in the 2007 draft by the Minnesota Vikings, is eighth in career rushing yards with 13,318. AD could pass Curtis Martin (14,101), LaDainian Tomlinson (13,684) and Jerome Bettis (13,662) this season.

The Redskins made a solid and necessary move by re-signing running back Adrian Peterson to a two-year deal worth up to $8 million. It's uncertain how much is guaranteed but there likely will be plenty of incentives. However, with Derrius Guice coming off a torn ACL - and having had knee issues in the past -- the Redskins need to be covered just in case he's not the same player. Or if it takes him time to handle a full load. Peterson would be a good mentor for Guice -- if he pays attention to the NFL's eighth all-time leading rusher. Peterson's work ethic and study habits impressed teammates and coaches in Washington last season. And he showed he could still play with 1,042 yards including 119 in a Week 16 loss at Tennessee. Peterson might not hit the consistent home runs anymore, but he can still elude defenders for extra yards. Peterson might be 34, but he still has something to offer.

The New York Giants have a history of trading marquee players in addition to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. In 1964, they traded future Hall of Fame linebacker Sam Huff to the Washington Redskins. In 1972, they traded future Hall of Fame QB Fran Tarkenton, who would go on to lead the Minnesota Vikings to three Super Bowls. Will OBJ join Huff and Tarkenton as another Giants player who left New York and then was enshrined in Canton?

Redskins release inconsistent Brown, McGee

In expected moves, the Redskins released linebacker Zach Brown and defensive lineman Stacy McGee, Washington announced Wednesday.

As expected the Redskins released linebacker Zach Brown and defensive lineman Stacy McGee, a source confirmed. USA Today first reported the moves. They were long expected and save the Redskins a combined $8 million. Neither figured in the Redskins future and weren't just about saving money.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins have lost two starters and a valuable backup in the first two days of the legal tampering period: LB Preston Smith (Green Bay), WR Jamison Crowder (New York Jets) and OT Ty Nsekhe (Buffalo). All were expected to depart but they leave a void. That means players on the spot now become: LB Ryan Anderson, a second-round pick in 2017 who could be a tone setter but needs to become a stronger pass rusher; second-year WR Trey Quinn, who would be the No. 1 slot as of now; and second-year OT Geron Christian, a third-round pick last offseason. Christian struggled last summer, but he will work out with Trent Williams in Houston this offseason once his torn MCL from November is healed. Christian looked lost at times, but clearly needed to get stronger.

The Jets added a key part to the new offensive system under Adam Gase with an agreement to sign free agent wide receiver Jamison Crowder. This move gives QB Sam Darnold a target inside, and Crowder's route running shows up on the film. Footwork and lateral speed there. Good fit for Gase's offense when looking at the route tree for the slot position.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins can cater their defensive scheme to fit the game of Landon Collins after signing the safety in free agency. Collins is at his best when he can play top-down on the ball as a deep half safety or rolled down as a curl/hook defender. And he will clean up in the run front. Smart, physical player.
