When asked about teammate Antonio Cromartie's free agency, Patrick Peterson said "all he talks about is freaking New York."
Cromartie hasn't been subtle about his desire to return to New York, saying "my house is there, so it's attractive." The soon-to-be 31-year-old played some of the best football of his career with the Jets from 2009 to 2013. Now that former Cardinals DC Todd Bowles is the head coach, a reunion makes sense. At this point, it would be a mild upset if Cromartie ended up with any team other than the Jets. Feb 9 - 3:04 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini said the team "must sign a top-shelf cornerback" during free agency.

Cimini adds new coach Todd Bowles "can't play his defense with the current personnel." The stars seem to be aligning for the return of free-agent CB Antonio Cromartie. The Jets have a ton of cap space, Cromartie is one of the best corners on the market and Bowles should feel comfortable with Cromartie after coaching him in Arizona. This deal could get done early in free agency.
Feb 7 - 9:53 AM

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie said he's open to returning to the Jets.

The dots connect here. Cromartie flashed some of his best ball as a Jet from 2010-13, he was elite in new coach Todd Bowles' scheme while with the Cardinals in 2014 and the Jets' secondary desperately needs a talent infusion. Cromartie, 30, is our No. 4 corner available in free agency, only behind Bryon Maxwell, Brandon Flowers and Tramon Williams.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes impending free agent CB Antonio Cromartie could return to the Jets.

Cromartie played under new Jets coach Todd Bowles in Arizona last season and called him a "great hire" in a recent interview. With the Jets secondary in shambles, a reunion may make sense for both sides. Cromartie had 13 interceptions across four seasons with the Jets from 2010-13.

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie (ankle) is active for Week 15 against the Rams.

It's possible Cro will be on a snap count just four days after tweaking his ankle. Inactive for the Cardinals are S Tyrann Mathieu, LB Kenny Demens, DT Alameda Ta’amu, OG Anthony Steen, DE Josh Mauro, OG Paul Fanaika and DE Kareem Martin.

Antonio Cromartie (ankle) will play in Thursday night's Week 15 game against the Rams.

It's great news after there was some initial fear when Cromartie went down in Week 14. How the Cardinals will use Patrick Peterson and Cromartie is unclear, but there's a good chance Peterson sees mostly Kenny Britt while Cromartie deals with Stedman Bailey. It's not expected to be a high-scoring game.

Antonio Cromartie (ankle) is day to day, and has yet to be ruled out for Thursday's game against the Rams.

We highly doubt Cromartie will give it a go on only three days' rest, but the news has gotten much more positive since it initially appeared Cromartie had an Achilles' issue. If Cro sits for Week 15, he should be ready for Week 16.

GM Steve Keim said Antonio Cromartie is believed to have injured a peroneal tendon in his ankle during Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

It's far better than an Achilles' injury it appeared to be at first. Still, Cromartie's status is completely up in the air for Week 15, yet another blow to a team completely ravaged by injury. Cromartie has earned a top-14 grade among corners in coverage from PFF this season.

Updating a previous item, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Antonio Cromartie's injury is not an Achilles injury.

Cromartie was quickly carted to the locker room after a non-contact injury in the fourth quarter. Even if the initial diagnosis of an Achilles is incorrect, the Cardinals' response to the injury suggests it is severe. Cromartie is highly questionable for the Cardinals' Thursday night matchup with the Rams.

Antonio Cromartie exited Week 14 against the Chiefs with an Achilles injury.

Cromartie fell to the ground after planting hard on his left leg in the fourth quarter. He could not put any pressure on his left leg after suffering the injury and was quickly carted back into the locker room. Cromartie is officially questionable to return, but he is likely done for the day.

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie (bone bruise in knee) is considered day to day, and likely to suit up against the Broncos for Week 5.

The Cardinals' bye came at the right time for Cromartie. Cromartie's play has improved on his dismal 2013, and his presence opposite Patrick Peterson will be very important as the Cardinals look to slow down Peyton Manning next week.
Mon, Sep 22, 2014 03:24:00 PM

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie has been diagnosed with a hyperextended knee and bone bruise.

It's a tough injury, but at least Cromartie avoided any ligament tears. Jerraud Powers will be forced to step in opposite Patrick Peterson, and opponents will continue to attack the Cardinals through the air rather than on the ground.
Mon, Sep 22, 2014 12:55:00 PM

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie suffered a left-knee injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers, and will undergo an MRI.

Cromartie didn't appear labored as he walked to the locker room, but it's a knee he's had operated on in the past. Jerraud Powers finished the game opposite Patrick Peterson. Cromartie has been playing well after his lost 2013 with the Jets. His loss would be big.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 08:23:00 PM

Antonio Cromartie claims to have ran a 4.36 forty during an offseason workout.

It's obviously not an official time, but Cromartie looks fully healthy after playing through a hip injury in 2013. The Cardinals are counting on a bounce back year from Cromartie, giving him a one-year, $3.25 million deal to bookend shadow CB Patrick Peterson. Cromartie was clocked at 4.47 during the 2006 Combine.

Antonio Cromartie showed no signs of his 2013 hip injury during OTAs and minicamp.

Cromartie was one of the best corners in the league in 2012, and one of the worst in 2013. The Cardinals are hoping that sharp decline was due to a hip injury first sustained way back in 2008, and aggravated last season. If Cromartie is right, he'll form a very nice bookend with Patrick Peterson.
