Description: Former Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has agreed to a one-year deal with Arizona. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Cromartie (38 tackles, three interceptions for the Jets last season) will set up shop across from All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. Arizona's secondary should be among the best in the league next season.

Description: Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie suffered a head injury in Sunday's game.
Insight: Cromartie stayed on the field all game, but after the game the injury came to light. If its a concussion he'll obviously have to go through the protocol before being allowed to play against Carolina next weekend.

Description: Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Steelers, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: Cromartie suffered a non-contact knee injury in practice Thursday but it turns out he only hyperextended it. Fantasy owners shouldn't shy away from using Antonio Brown Sunday.

Description: Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie reportedly suffered a non-contact knee injury in practice Thursday and was taken for an MRI. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPNNY.com
Insight: The team is concerned, Cimini reports. Cromartie is one of the top shutdown corners in the league so any fantasy value that the Jets defense has would be lost if he's out. Dee Milliner (hamstring) is also out, so Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could be throwing on Kyle Wilson, Darrin Walls and Isaiah Trufant Sunday afternoon.

Description: Jets CB Antonio Cromartie injured his elbow in practice Monday.
Insight: Cromartie has 25 career interceptions and he and the rest of the Jets defense will have to play at peek efficiency this season given the weakness on the other side of the ball.

Description: If the Jets do sign free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha, it could open the door to the Texans pursuing the odd man out in New York, CB Antonio Cromartie. SOURCE: CBS SPORTS
Insight: Cromartie has 18 career interceptions and did play under Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips in his rookie season with the Chargers in 2006.
 
2/17/2011 10:32:00 AM
Description: NFL Network's Michael Lombardi reported Wednesday night that sources have told him that the Jets plan to let free agent DB Antonio Cromartie walk this offseason.
Insight: GM Mike Tannenbaum made it known he didn't care for Cromartie's rants about Tom Brady and his Twitter battle with Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck regarding the CBA when he told Hasselbeck he was "going to smash his face in." Letting Cromartie walk won't be that huge when they have Darrelle Revis, but we are sure the Jets will try to bring in someone rather than rely on guys they already have. Cromartie should easily find work elsewhere if he makes it to the open martket.

Description: Free agent DB Antonio Cromartie called out free agent QB Matt Hasselbeck after Hasselbeck took a shot at Cromartie, but took it down. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Cromartie called the union's leadership "a-holes" earlier in the week, to which Hasselbeck tweeted asking Cromartie if he even knew what the CBA is. Cromartie took a shot back after Hasselbeck, smartly, took the comment down.
 
8/7/2010 2:05:00 PM
Description: Antonio Cromartie has "easily been the most impressive defensive player" in Jets camp, according to beat writer Manish Mehta.
Insight: So much focus gets placed on Darrelle Revis that people sometimes forget how good Cromartie also is. The Jets defensive backfield will be awfully tough to play against this season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
6/29/2010 10:08:00 PM
Description: According to his agent, Jets CB Antonio Cromartie's recent hip issue is not related to the hip injury that plagued him with the Chargers.
Insight: Maybe not, but the situation does bear watching. If Cromartie is hampered, the Jets don't have a cornerback who can immediately step in and provide the same level of play. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/27/2010 8:00:00 PM
Description: Antonio Cromartie missed some reps in minicamp because of a "hip issue."
Insight: Cromartie has had hip issues in the past, so this is a situation worth keeping an eye on. Rookie Kyle Wilson would play in his place, but he's probably not ready to handle the rigors of the pro game yet, so Cromartie's absence would definitely affect the value of the team's defense.

5/19/2010 12:57:00 PM
Description: Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine raved about new CB Antonio Cromartie.
Insight: Cromartie is probably only holding the place for recent draftee Kyle Wilson, but that doesn't mean that he won;t be an effective IDP player this year. With Darrelle Revis locking down the other side of the field, Cromartie will have plenty of opportunities for interceptions. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/1/2010 8:05:00 PM
Description: Cromartie claims he never asked the Jets to pay him a large salary advance so that he could make child support payments.
Insight: Cromartie comes to New York with considerable baggage. The Jets hope his level of play makes people forget about his off the field issues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/6/2010 1:18:00 PM
Description: The Jets acquired Cromartie on Thursday for a 2011 conditional third round pick.
Insight: The Jets needed a cornerback to handle all the action that flows away from Darrelle Revis and believe that they have their man in Cromartie. The ball-hawking 25 year old has 15 interceptions over his last three seasons. (Sportsbuff.com)
 
3/3/2010 8:26:00 PM
Description: Beat writer Rich Cimini dismissed the rumor that Cromartie could end up on the Jets.
Insight: It would be a nice dream for Jets fans to have him lining up across from Darrelle Revis, bit Cimini said the Chargers are not looking to trade him within the AFC. However, there are several good landing spots in the NFC for him, Detroit in particular. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/28/2010 9:38:00 PM
Description: Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune reports, via Twitter, that Cromartie could be traded to the Detroit Lions "soon."
Insight: The Chargers have a need at RB now, but the Lions don't have a good one to offer. That would most likely mean Detroit would send a draft pick to San Diego in any potential deal. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/26/2010 10:11:00 AM
Description: According to NFL.com, talks about trading Cromartie have heated up lately now that the NFL Combine has started.
Insight: The Chargers continue to have Cromartie on the trade block as they look for a running back or draft pick in return. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/23/2010 11:37:00 AM
Description: Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News calls Cromartie a "good fit" for the Cowboys and thinks the team should trade Tashard Choice for him.
Insight: The Chargers do need to obtain a replacement for LaDainian Tomlinson this offseason, one way or another, and the Cowboys have three capable running backs on their roster. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/17/2010 8:59:00 AM
Description: ESPN.com reports that the Chargers could consider trading Cromartie for a running back.
Insight: There are plenty of rumors that have the Chargers looking into acquiring Tashard Choice from the Cowboys. (SportsBuff.com)
 
10/24/2009 2:00:00 AM
Description: Cromartie is listed as questionable to play against the Chiefs on Sunday due to a bruised knee suffered in practice on Thursday.
Insight: He is still expected to be active but Cromartie's absence could be good news for Dwayne Bowe owners. (SportsBuff.com)
