Could we be seeing Antonio Cromartie doing a dance like the one pictured right in the endzone this fall? Maybe.

After coach Rex Ryan revealed that we may see Antonio Cromartie at wide receiver at times this year, Cromartie confirmed as much at practice yesterday, talking about the fact that Sparano is working on a package to include him on offense:

“They’re trying to make up a ‘Cro Package,’” Cromartie told the Daily News after a rain-soaked practice in front of 2,588 fans on Saturday. “So I’ll see what goes in there.”

Antonio is not afraid of putting in time on offense, since he is already comfortable with everything the team does on defense.

This is a prime example of the fact that Tony Sparano, although known for his run-first mentality, can also think outside the box. He revived the Wildcat a few years ago in Miami, and back in 2001, was on the staff of the Redskins in 2001 that used cornerback Champ Bailey at wide receiver.
