Source: Cromartie visits with Cardinals
By Rich Cimini
Four days after being released by the New York Jets in an expected move, cornerback Antonio Cromartie could be on the verge of finding a new address. On Thursday, Cromartie is visiting with the Arizona Cardinals, according to a league source.
The Cards are looking for a cornerback to play opposite Patrick Peterson, and Cromartie is high on their wish list. This would be a blow to the Jets because, even though they released him, the sides agreed to leave the door open for a possible return. Cromartie acknowledged that Monday in a radio interview.
The Jets have a gaping hole at cornerback. The top corners are off the market, although they showed serious interest in only one -- Vontae Davis, who ended up re-signing with the Indianapolis Colts. They expressed no interest in a reunion with Darrelle Revis, who ended up with the New England Patriots.
Maybe Cromartie's visit to the desert will prompt the Jets to step up. They had to cut him -- he was due a $5 million roster bonus and had a $15 million cap charge -- but you never say never in the NFL.
