Only $7 million of Antonio Cromartie's $32 million contract with the Jets is guaranteed.
The guaranteed money comes in the form of a $5 million 2015 base salary and $2 million 2015 roster bonus. After that, the Jets can cut him at any point without any financial ramifications. It should keep the talented yet inconsistent Cromartie highly motivated. Mar 24 - 9:13 AM

Jets agreed to terms with CB Antonio Cromartie, formerly of the Cardinals, on a four-year, $32 million contract.

Cro began working on a Jets reunion the day the Cardinals' season ended. A disaster in 2013, Cromartie got back on track in the desert, and reunites with ex-Cardinals DC Todd Bowles in New York. That must give the Jets confidence that the famously inconsistent Cromartie's rebound won't just be a one-year phenomenon. Cro will again be paired with Darrelle Revis. His return takes pressure off a rehabbing Dee Milliner (Achilles'). Cromartie turns 31 next month.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports says there's a "strong sense" around the league free agent Antonio Cromartie will sign with the Jets.

La Canfora said at this point "anything else would be a surprise." Wednesday we heard Cromartie had narrowed his choices down to Arizona and New York, but now the Cardinals look like a long shot. Cromartie's former teammate, Darrelle Revis, has been recruiting him to New York.
Mar 12 - 10:57 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets are the "clear leader" to sign free agent Antonio Cromartie.

Darrelle Revis is "recruiting" Cromartie to rejoin him in New York. The Cardinals would like Cromartie back, but they're not going to win this battle.
Mar 11 - 9:45 AM

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie is expected to sign with either the Jets or Cardinals on Wednesday.

And then there were two. The Jets seem to be the slight favorite given what Cromartie has said in recent interviews, but their need at cornerback isn't as great as it was 24 hours ago after signing both Darrelle Revis and Buster Skrine. Cromartie and Revis played together in New York from 2010 to 2012 and it's very possible they could be reunited by the end of the day.
Mar 11 - 8:55 AM

The Jets are in "serious discussions" with free agent Antonio Cromartie.

Despite paying big money to Darrelle Revis and Buster Skrine on Tuesday, the Jets believe they need more cornerback help. They would presumably use Revis and Cro out wide, with Skrine manning the slot. Cromartie hasn't been shy about his desire to return to New York, and played for new Jets coach Todd Bowles last year in Arizona. This remarriage now seems inevitable.
Mar 11 - 8:02 AM

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie says he's down to the Cowboys, Jets or Cardinals.

Cromartie is in a holding pattern until Darrelle Revis makes his decision. The Jets still seem to make the most sense as Cromartie has shined there before and would be playing for Todd Bowles -- who he shined with in Arizona.
Mar 10 - 2:30 PM

The New York Daily News reports the Jets and free agent CB Antonio Cromartie have "mutual interest" in a reunion.

It's an obvious marriage, as Cro would be reuniting with both the Jets and ex-Cardinals DC Todd Bowles. The Jets badly need help at cornerback. Cro is past his prime, but rebounded on his dismal 2013 last season. Per reporter Manish Mehta, the Cardinals are also interested in keeping Cromartie.
Mar 10 - 1:49 PM

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie could be an option for the Cowboys.

The interest isn't necessarily mutual as Cromartie has made it pretty clear he wants to play for the Jets. There's a good chance teams in the market for a cornerback will be in a holding pattern until Darrelle Revis makes his decision. Once Revis signs, the rest of the dominoes should fall pretty quickly. The Cowboys had been in the running for Davon House until he signed with Jacksonville on Tuesday.
Mar 10 - 12:04 PM

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.

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.
Jan 29 - 8:54 AM

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.
