Draft Scout *Antonio Cromartie News
09/22/15 - CB Antonio Cromartie played 61 of 64 defensive snaps Monday night, eight days after he suffered what initially appeared to be a season-ending left knee injury in the season opener against the Browns. But Cromartie was diagnosed with a hyperextension and managed to play Monday despite a limited week of practice. He has missed just one game -- a coach's decision in the meaningless 2010 regular-season finale -- in nine-plus NFL seasons.
09/16/15 - CB Antonio Cromartie (left knee sprain) remains day-to-day. Head coach Todd Bowles said Cromartie, who was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's 31-10 win over the Browns, will need to run without a limp in order to play against the Colts on Monday night. Cromartie has never missed an NFL game due to injury. He was inactive for the season finale against the Bills in 2010, when the Jets had already secured their playoff position.
09/14/15 - CB Antonio Cromartie (sprained left knee) appears to have avoided a season-ending injury. Cromartie, who fell to the ground while planting on a play in the second quarter Sunday, was diagnosed with a sprain following an MRI Monday. He is listed as week-to-week and has not yet been ruled out of next Monday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
09/13/15 - CB Antonio Cromartie (left knee) might have suffered a serious injury in the second quarter of Sunday's 31-10 win over the Browns. Cromartie crumpled to the ground without being touched on the left sideline as Browns QB Johnny Manziel scrambled for 6 yards along the right sideline. Cromartie could not put any weight on the leg and was helped off the field by two trainers. Head coach Todd Bowles didn't have an update afterward but said "I hope not" when asked if it was an ACL injury. The Jets signed Cromartie, 31, to a four-year deal in March in hopes he and CB Darrelle Revis -- who played with Cromartie in New York from 2010 through 2012 -- could revitalize a dormant secondary.
03/12/15 - From 2010-2012, the Jets touted the best cornerback tandem in the NFL, Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.
On Thursday, they got the duo back together.
Cromartie agreed to sign with the Jets, following Revis back to Gang Green in free agency. Revis returned to the Jets on a five-year, $70 million deal. The 31-year-old Cromartie is expected to sign a four-year contract worth up to $32 million with incentives.
That gives new head coach Todd Bowles and the Jets a new top three at the position, including former Cleveland Browns starter Buster Skrine. What that might mean for former first-round pick Dee Milliner is not certain.
Cromartie played for Bowles with the Arizona Cardinals last season and also considered at least two other offers, including from the Dallas Cowboys.
Cromartie played for the Jets in 2013 when Revis spent his only season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was traded to Tampa for draft picks, a haul that then-general manager John Idzik turned into Milliner.
