The Jets?  You better believe they are happy they brought back Antonio Cromartie at 4 years and $32 million.  Especially when you notice how much Asomugha has struggled this season.

“We’re happy we have Cromartie, and I’m sure they’re happy, Philly’s happy they got Nnamdi. That’s behind us. We’re extremely happy that we got Cro back,’’ Rex Ryan said Wednesday.

As for Asomugh; there are no regrets.

“I don’t regret it at all. The thing that’s been very difficult is not winning. I think the tough part about that is the expectations were really high coming into it,’’ Asomugha said. “The expectations that were out there, I let that get to me as well, expectation that everything will be and must be perfect with this team now that they’ve comprised these players, blah, blah, blah.

“I let that seep through, then that made the losing a little bit tougher, more difficult to deal with. But I did not and do not regret that. Our story is not over yet; there’s always something to learn, and we’re still fighting.’’

Pro Football Focus has Asomugha ranked 39th among all cornerbacks who’ve played at least 75 percent of their teams snaps; Revis is first.
