Shrink from engagement (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

contract

I believe this is a double definition.

'shrink' is the first definition.
(I know that shrink can be written as contract)

'engagement' is the second definition.
(thesaurus)

'from' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for contract that I've seen before include "bargain" , "Undertake" , "four spades, perhaps" , "Make smaller" , "Shrink in legal agreement?" .)
