The Newark Star-Ledger expects Antonio Cromartie to be a cap casualty.
This falls in line with multiple reports. Cromartie graded as one of the worst corners in the league last year and is due a non-guaranteed $8 million salary. The Jets have Marcus Williams as an in-house replacement. Jan 30 - 4:41 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes CB Antonio Cromartie will be released this offseason.

Many other beat reporters have said the same. Not a single cent of Cromartie's $8 million 2016 salary is guaranteed, and New York could save all of that $8 million against the cap by releasing him. Soon to be 32 and coming off a down season, it is a no-brainer for the Jets.

The New York Daily News' Seth Walder considers it "basically a lock" that the Jets will release RCB Antonio Cromartie in the offseason.

ESPN's Rich Cimini expressed similar thoughts over the weekend. Cromartie, 32 in April, has shown his age this season, getting roasted in coverage and being charged with seven touchdowns allowed by Pro Football Focus. Quarterbacks are averaging 9.75 YPA throwing at Cromartie with a 120.7 passer rating. The Jets will save $8 million with the inevitable move.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes it is a "strong possibility" Antonio Cromartie is released this offseason.

New York can save $8 million on the 2016 cap by cutting Cromartie. Considering his play and the money New York will have to invest in Muhammad Wilkerson, it is almost a no-brainer. Marcus Williams or first-round bust Dee Milliner could replace Cromartie in the starting lineup next season.

Jets RCB Antonio Cromartie (thigh) is inactive for Week 10 against the Bills.

As is SS Calvin Pryor, as well as Pryor's backup, Dion Bailey. The Jets are shorthanded in the secondary, leaving Darrelle Revis, Marcus Williams and Dee Milliner as their top-three corners. It's still a tough matchup for Bills QB Tyrod Taylor. Also inactive for the Jets are QB Bryce Petty, RB Bilal Powell, OG Dakota Dozier and OG Ben Ijalana.

Jets RCB Antonio Cromartie (thigh) is doubtful for Thursday night's Week 10 game against the Bills.

The Jets are really banged up. Slot CB Buster Skrine (shoulder, hand) is questionable, and SS Calvin Pryor (ankle) is out. Pryor's backup, Dion Bailey, is also out with an ankle issue. The Jets could be forced to go with Darrelle Revis, Marcus Williams, and Dee Milliner at cornerback Thursday.

Jets coach Todd Bowles called RCB Antonio Cromartie (thigh) "50-50" to play on Thursday night against the Bills.

Cromartie left Sunday's win over Jacksonville with a "deep quad bruise," and did not return. The Jets turned to Marcus Williams as his replacement. New York will also be without SS Calvin Pryor (ankle) for Thursday night's game. With Darrelle Revis assured of being assigned to Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Charles Clay could have more Week 10 openings than usual.

Antonio Cromartie left the Jets' Week 9 game against the Jaguars with a thigh injury and is questionable to return.

Cromartie left late in the third quarter. He's on the sideline with a heat pack on his thigh. Marcus Williams has entered the game at cornerback.

Jets CB Antonio Cromartie said he knows he can play at a high level, but he needs to be more consistent.

"It's not a point of saying: 'Oh, do I still have it?'" Cromartie said. "I know that. It's just a point of going out and doing it every single week. You have to go into every single week being consistent, and I think that's the biggest thing for me." Cromartie was a disaster last week against Oakland, and he has struggled most of the season. With Darrelle Revis likely to shadow Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns should see plenty of snaps opposite Cromartie this week.

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports Jets RCB Antonio Cromartie (knee) will play Monday night against the Colts.

As recently as last week, Cromartie was feared to have torn both his ACL and MCL. He escaped with a "hyperextended" knee, which is a day-to-day injury. Cromartie figures to line up at right corner on Monday night, with Darrelle Revis sticking on the left side of the formation. It's hard to say who will cover whom because the Colts' receivers can all line up inside and outside.

Profootballtalk reports Jets CB Antonio Cromartie (knee) has a "good chance" to play Monday evening.

Cro could be on a snap count after a limited week of practice, but would be a boost for the Jets' defense against the Colts' explosive offense. Even if Cro sits tonight, he should be back for Week 3.
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 01:11:00 PM

Antonio Cromartie (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the Colts.

Cromartie is unlikely to play despite the questionable tag. T.Y. Hilton (questionable, knee) will be shadowed by Darrelle Revis if active.
Sat, Sep 19, 2015 02:50:00 PM

Jets RCB Antonio Cromartie (knee) is considered "highly unlikely" to play on Monday night against the Colts.

Cromartie got in some light work during Friday's practice, but Jets beat reporter Manish Mehta does not expect him to play against Indy. Cromartie and Darrelle Revis were stationary "sides" cornerbacks in Week 1 against the Browns. If Cromartie indeed cannot go, we'd fully expect to see Revis shadow whomever the Jets deem the Colts' top receiver on Monday night.
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 01:36:00 PM

Jets CB Antonio Cromartie (knee) said he will not play until he is "100 percent" healthy.

After reportedly suffering a hyperextended knee Week 1, he is unlikely to be 100 percent by Monday night when the Jets face the Colts. The New York Post reported Marcus Williams is the likely starter in Cromartie's place, but Buster Skrine should also see an increase in snaps.
Thu, Sep 17, 2015 08:23:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Jets CB Antonio Cromartie did not suffer a torn ACL.

The Jets feared the worst after a gruesome looking non-contact injury Week 1 against the Browns, but it looks like Cromartie escaped with just a hyperextended knee. The injury could still sideline Cromartie a couple weeks, but he is not in danger of missing the season. The Jets have not ruled Cromartie out for Week 2.
