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. May 14 - 8:28 PM

Date:

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.
Feb 22 - 1:18 PM

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.

Jan 2 - 10:18 AM

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.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 10:40:00 AM

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.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 06:57:00 PM

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.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 02:09:00 PM

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.
