Remember earlier in camp, when Antonio Cromartie said he’s the “second best wide receiver” on the team? If he thought this would help him fit in with the offensive players, he needs to think again.

Word from Cortland is that the Jets receivers consider his comments a slight against them. Most vocal on the subject was Chaz Schilens. Here is what he had to say:

“I think it’s a slight, I’m not going to lie,” Schilens said today. “I just wouldn’t say it. It’s not something I would say, but I’m not him I guess.” “I kind of thought it was a joke, but then I guess he said it and it shows he feels,” Schilens said. “So it’s my job to, I guess, fix that situation. We’ll see, we’ll see what goes on in practice, but he’s entitled to think whatever he wants.”

We learned earlier in camp that Cromartie will be mixed in at wide receiver, which prompted ESPN to ask Cromartie the question about where he fits in. Clearly, he thinks highly of himself.

Schilens went on to acknowledge that Cromartie is a great athlete, but doesn’t fully understand the various nuances that go into playing wide receiver.
