Report: Jets willing to lose Cromartie

A. Cromartie could be out of a New York uniform next season (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

It’s been quite a month for Jets CB Antonio Cromartie. After an up and down season – in fairness, he was probably more ‘up’ than ‘down,’ but some of his ‘downs’ were really low, Cromartie called Patriots QB Tom Brady an a------ (hell, even Reggie Jackson suggested Cromartie pipe down after that comment).

Then, he blasted the NFL and the NFLPA about the labor dispute and the “no light at the end of the tunnel” progress they had made in negotiating a new CBA (hey, the man needs to get paid).

Then, Cromartie and Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck got into a mini-Twitter war in which Cromartie threatened to smash in Hasselbeck’s face.

So yeah, he’s been pretty classy.

And though it’s questionable whether any of the previous controversies will play a role in the Jets ultimate decision about Cromartie, the NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi, via Pro Football Talk, reported tonight that New York likely will let the upcoming free agent walk away.

That’s because, Lombardi says, the Jets are more interested in retaining the services of WRs Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards rather than pay Cromartie a boatload of money.

Cromartie should be fine, though. He’s probably not a top-five cornerback in the NFL, but he certainly could be a team’s No. 1 cover guy. He fulfilled that role with New York when Darrelle Revis was out with injury, and for the most part, Cromartie performed admirably.

UPDATED: The New York Daily News reports that no decision has been made regarding Cromartie and that he's still a priority for the Jets.

Well you can't have everything, I think everyone knew that when Revis got the big bucks he was after last year that the Jets would have to let WC go, and poof that's exactly what happened.  Granted his non-consistant play and his big mouth might have come into the picture it probably all goes back to bucks and wanting to keep Holmes and Edwards more than him.

Some of you people are unreal.  Even if Cromartie isn't a top 5 db but a top 10 db, that's still pretty damn good if you ask me... and no way he's worse then top 10 in my opinion.  Just because you guys have a guy as good as Revis is, don't forget about the other guys on D that helped you get as far as you did.... he's a great player....

owlweiner--in pitt anything less than a lombardi is failure--i would not expect you or your other jetheads to understand this because most of you only view a super bowl as 2 other teams playing.  your moron buddy is the one that was proud of winning against the pats and colts--if your big mouth coach would stop putting his wifes foot in his mouth maybe you all would not be such targets for the trash talking.  Win something and then post your comments--also someday i wish to be as mature and insightful as you and other jet fans: like that idiot that wears the firemans hat.

Cromartie is good but not great.  When Ravens faced him in week 1 TJ Houshmanzadeh ate his lunch.  Jets don't need him - they have that kid from Boise State - he was decent.
