Antonio Cromartie Returns to the New York Jets

By Alan Schechter

Antonio Cromartie is home, folks.

They have been working for hours, and probably days, and it has happened. Antonio Cromartie is back as a member of the New York Jets, agreeing to a contract this afternoon. The report from the NY Post is that the deal was for four years, at more than $32 million. Cromartie returns to reunite with former teammate Darrelle Revis and from, as Revis put it, their “Batman and Robin” duo.

I love this signing, as you all know by now. Antonio Cromartie, although on the plus side of 30, brings experience, both with the New York Jets, and Todd Bowles. Coaches love to bring in “their” guys to a new team to help them install their system, and Cromartie will serve that purpose, and be able to teach Dee Milliner and Dexter McDougle.

Furthermore, Antonio Cromartie truly wanted to be a New York Jet. He missed playing in New York, didn’t want to leave, and has talked about returning since his season ended with the Cardinals. When healthy, Antonio Cromartie clearly has something left in the tank. Cromartie will be a big help to bolster a weak New York Jets secondary.

I absolutely love the Cromartie signing. Great move by the Jets here.
