Cro flies to 'Zona, what now?

The New York Jets' cornerback crisis became more pronounced Thursday with the news, reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, that Antonio Cromartie has signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
The Jets cut Cromartie before free agency with the understanding that the door was open for a return, according to Cromartie. Since then, the Jets have failed to address the need. They missed out on free agents Vontae Davis and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, they showed no interest in Darrelle Revis, and they missed a chance to bring back Cromartie. It's possible the Jets were concerned by Cromartie's troublesome hip; we might never get a straight answer on that.
Right now, the Jets' starters are Dee Milliner and Darrin Walls, with Kyle Wilson in the slot. Rex Ryan has to be a bit concerned, and that's an understatement.
One name to watch: The Houston Texans are said to be shopping Johnathan Joseph, who could end up being released for cap considerations. Cornerback, once considered the strength of the Jets, is now a big problem.
