Draft Scout *Antonio Cromartie News
08/25/16 - CB Antonio Cromartie will not play in Saturday night's game with Philadelphia. Pagano said that Cromartie has been cramming to quickly learn the Colts' defensive playbook and is in good enough shape to play. But he is expected to sit out the Eagles game and next week's preseason finale at Cincinnati. Cromartie is expected to start against Detroit on Sept. 11.
08/22/16 - CB Antonio Cromartie signed a free agent deal with the cornerback-starved Colts on Monday.
NFL.com reported that the deal is for one year. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Cromartie is on the back end of his career after playing last season for the New York Jets, who released him Feb. 21. A four-time Pro Bowl selection, his 31 interceptions rank third in the NFL among active players.
The Colts' secondary has been riddled by injuries in the preseason and there is concern about the front seven's pass-rushing ability. The aging Cromartie is reported to be slowed by hip problems. He struggled last season with the Jets and had drawn little interest in the free agent market this spring and summer before working out with the Colts on Monday.
02/23/16 - CB Antonio Cromartie had his contract terminated by the Jets Monday (Feb. 22). The release of Cromartie reportedly allows the Jets to save $8 million on their salary cap. Cromartie, 31, was due to make $8 million in 2016 in the second season of a four-year, $32 million contract. The move wasn't a surprise after Cromartie experienced a subpar season in 2015.
Cromartie also played with the Jets from 2010-13 - intercepting 13 passes during that span - before playing for the Arizona Cardinals in 2014. Cromartie didn't intercept a single pass in 2015.
"I would like to think the Jets organization for bringing me back this past season," Cromartie wrote on Instagram. "I had a lot of fun and I know my first (half) of the season didn't go well and I thank you guys for pushing and believing in me to keep me on the field so I could finish strong. Today is a sad day for me not because of my release but the guys I became really close in our DB room."
Cromartie has 31 career interceptions in 10 NFL season. His best campaign was in 2007 with the San Diego Chargers when he led the NFL with 10 interceptions.

11/19/15 - CB Antonio Cromartie (quad) was limited in practice Wednesday. Head coach Todd Bowles said he would feel better about Cromartie's chances of playing Sunday against the Texans if he could do more in practice on Thursday. Cromartie was injured against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 8 and missed a game due to injury last Thursday for the first time in his 10-year NFL career. Bowles said Cromartie would return to the starting lineup when healthy, even though Cromartie has given up long touchdown passes in the last two games in which he's played.
