Colts DC Ted Monachino said Antonio Cromartie is "absolutely ready."
Cromartie did not see any work in the preseason after signing a one-year deal on August 23, but Monachino said the veteran has "had good days of practice." With Vontae Davis (ankle) out, Cromartie will play a big role right out of the gate. The Lions' passing game should find plenty of success against the Colts this week. Sep 8 - 12:13 PM

New Colts CB Antonio Cromartie's contract is a one-year, $3 million deal, but includes only $250,000 guaranteed.

It's enough that the Colts would surely prefer that Cromartie makes the roster, but hardly prohibitive to his release. He'll have to earn his way onto the 53-man roster over the final weeks of the summer. If all goes according to plan, Cro should be in the Week 1 starting lineup.

Colts signed CB Antonio Cromartie to a one-year contract.

Cromartie, 32, worked out for the Colts on Monday and landed the deal. With Vontae Davis week-to-week with an ankle injury, the Colts needed a capable starter opposite Patrick Robinson. It allows Darius Butler to stay in the slot, while he's also been working at safety. Cromartie had a rough 2015 season with the Jets, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 97 cover corner. The Jets released him back in February, and his Colts workout was Cromartie's first since then.

Free agent Antonio Cromartie will work out for the Colts.

With Vontae Davis week to week with an ankle issue, the Colts need some depth. It's Cromartie's first-known workout since he was released by the Jets in February. He'll have to prove his hip is healthy before getting a deal.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins coach Adam Gase isn't a fan of free agent Antonio Cromartie.

Cromartie had previously been linked to Miami given the team's lack of secondary depth, but it's hard to envision him winding up in South Beach unless Gase has a sudden change of heart. The Fins have also kept tabs on Leon Hall, though he'd only be useful at nickel corner and the Dolphins might want someone more versatile. Neither player has drawn much interest this offseason.

Free agent Antonio Cromartie has no plans to retire, and insists his hip wasn't an issue in 2015.

"Hell, no," Cro told the New York Daily News. "I'm not done. My hip wasn't the problem last year." Cro's comments come a few hours after NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported he was considering hanging up his cleats over "lingering hip concerns." Hip or no hip, Cro is 32 and coming off multiple mediocre seasons. The league could be making his decision for him.
Jul 25 - 1:09 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "lingering hip concerns" could force free agent CB Antonio Cromartie to retire.

A former First Team All-Pro, the 32-year-old has had an exceptional career, but he looked to be out of gas with the Jets last season. These hip issues could help explain why. Cromartie has not received much interest since being released by New York in February.
Jul 25 - 12:06 PM

ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss doesn’t expect the Cardinals to sign free agent Antonio Cromartie.

The Cardinals have an opening opposite Patrick Peterson after losing Jerraud Powers to Baltimore. Penciled-in starter Justin Bethel (foot) is coming off April surgery, and third-rounder Brandon Williams needs time to develop. GM Steve Keim has a history of signing veterans late in the offseason, but there’s been nothing to connect the Cardinals to Cromartie.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "internally discussed" signing free agent CB Antonio Cromartie.

Now 32, Cromartie is coming off back-to-back rough seasons. He's yet to make a visit in free agency since being released by the Jets in February. He'd be little more than veteran depth for Miami's shaky cornerback corps.
May 12 - 6:38 PM

Coach Todd Bowles wouldn't rule out re-signing free agent CB Antonio Cromartie.

The Jets also haven't closed the door on free agent OLB Calvin Pace, but Cromartie is more likely to re-sign after the additions of linebackers Darron Lee and Jordan Jenkins in the first three rounds. Cromartie hasn't had any known interest since his February release.
May 7 - 3:35 PM

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie wants to play for the Cowboys.

"My dream choice? That'd be the Dallas Cowboys," Cromartie said. "That's very high on my list." Cromartie hasn't drawn a sniff of interest on the open market since being released by the Jets over 50 days ago. The Cowboys haven't done anything to upgrade their cornerback depth chart, and are currently sporting Brandon Carr, Orlando Scandrick, and Morris Claiborne atop it.

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie said he has not scheduled a meeting with the Bills.

Speaking on NFL Network to Ian Rapoport -- who originally reported the story -- Cro said any Bills meeting was "news to" him. Despite shooting down the report, Cromartie did express a desire to reunite with Rex Ryan. "I love Rex," he said. "That would be a great opportunity for me. I think he’s doing something good up in Buffalo to try to get that organization turned around." The Bills have a great, young corner duo and big cap concerns. It would not make any sense to waste valuable cap space on a declining corner.

Free agent Antonio Cromartie is expected to meet with the Bills.

Going to Buffalo would reunite Cromartie with his old head coach, Rex Ryan. The Bills got solid cornerback play from Stephon Gilmore and Ron Darby last season and probably envision Cromartie as a backup. Because he was cut, Cromartie doesn't have to wait until the new league year to sign like other free agents.
Feb 28 - 12:28 PM

A league source tells NJ.com free agent Antonio Cromartie is open to re-signing with the Jets.

Cromartie was cut one year into his "four-year, $32 million" deal on Monday, but is apparently willing to let bygones be bygones because he "loves the Jets organization and coach Todd Bowles." We don't doubt it, but if the Jets wanted Cro back on a cheaper deal, they likely would have vigorously pursued a restructure before cutting him loose. Perhaps they did, but at least for the moment, Cromartie appears likely to be elsewhere in 2016.

Jets released CB Antonio Cromartie.

The long-expected move clears $8 million in cap space and leaves behind no dead money. Cromartie re-signed with the Jets to great fanfare last March, inking a "four-year, $32 million" deal, but ended up being one of the league's worst cornerbacks during his age-31 season. Cromartie is a greatly diminished player as he heads into what would be his 11th NFL campaign. He turns 32 in April. Marcus Williams is the obvious in-house replacement for Gang Green.
