Cromartie scores a trip to Pro Bowl
By Rich Cimini
Cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who admitted last week that he had "one of the worst seasons of my career," is headed to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. That pretty much says everything about the Pro Bowl and the process of selecting players.
Cromartie, a second alternate, will replace the injured Aqib Talib of the New England Patriots, it was announced Monday.
The New York Jets will have two players in the game, Cromartie and center Nick Mangold, another injury replacement. It's farcical that defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, arguably the best player on the team, will be sitting at home.
Cromartie is a likely salary-cap casualty.
