Antonio Cromartie pays past-due child support

Shortly after acquiring him in a trade with the San Diego Chargers, the New York Jets agreed to pay Antonio Cromartie $500,000 up front.

Cromartie has now used some of that money to pay his past-due child support.

Brent Schrotenboer of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Cromartie’s scheduled appearance in a San Diego court next week was taken off the court calendar after Cromartie made a child support payment.

Cromartie has seven children by six women in five states, and the attorney for one of the mothers said he was behind by somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000 in payments.

Both Cromartie and Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum said after Cromartie joined the team that he would be making sure all of his child support payments were up to date this off-season.

    It makes you wonder….. I think the first thing that I would buy with my rookie contract bonus would be a good accountant – someone that would remember to pay all of my ‘bills’ or in Cromartie’s case – condoms would have been a good idea.

    dude… really? Thats the article and headline you want on your site!? NO ONE CARES!

    Hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see Cromartie’s story ending well — this is a disaster waiting to happen.

  6. Ravensfankiller says: Mar 17, 2010 9:54 AM

    As a Jets fan this is acceptable but there is Character Problems with Brandon Marshall ? LOL
    What a joke.

    I’m glad Woody paid this guy! I’d hate to think the taxpayer’s bailing out a Pro-athlete!
    I wonder if that was part of the deal?

    Cromartie is the reincarnation of Travis Henry.

  10. DonTerrelli says: Mar 17, 2010 10:00 AM

    I wonder how many of these hoes took that money and went out to get their hair and nails done or bought Escalades on big chrome wheels, or both.

  11. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Mar 17, 2010 10:00 AM

    along with giving his baby mamas and his children the financial security they need, i hope he is somehow able to be a real father and give more then just money

  12. riddlecleve says: Mar 17, 2010 10:10 AM

    After kid number 3 in state #2 wouldnt you think of wearing a condom? Ya”ll heeerrrd me, represent Cromartie.

  13. smo05d says: Mar 17, 2010 10:14 AM

    Funny how 7 kids by 6 different women was his wake-up point. Wouldn’t most people feel that 3 or 4 kids by different women would be a wake-up call? But no, he’s so special that it took him to hit that number 7….

  14. Mr. Bateman says: Mar 17, 2010 10:21 AM

    He didn’t want no mo baby mama drama!

    “along with giving his baby mamas and his children the financial security they need, i hope he is somehow able to be a real father and give more then just money”
    That is a good point that you make WarrenMoonGOAT
    Unfortunately, I think a question more rooted in reality would be whether he knows the names of all-or most-or any of these kids.
    Disgusting. Good luck with this guy Jets fans.

  16. lilhopo says: Mar 17, 2010 10:25 AM

    donterrelli, that comment was totally unnecessary. Black woman take care of their kids. not everyone does that bullcrap that you are talking about. get out of your trailer and visit the real world instead of listening about it on your cb

  17. BoltsFan says: Mar 17, 2010 10:26 AM

    Cromartie is a typical ghetto clown running around trying to spread his ignorant seed throughout the ghetto population. Those stupid cows he impregnated “need” dat 25K per month to get ‘they’ hair straightened and to buy tight fitting lycra pants to fit over their big ass butts. They be gettin dat money cause dey need it for dem kids. Just ‘aks’ them.

    Dude wrap your junk up how stupid our you?

    And this twerp is going to behave in NYC? Yeah, naivete exists there…
    Glad Cro was signed by someone named Woody Johnson – a match made in heaven.

  20. medic406 says: Mar 17, 2010 10:34 AM

    7 Kids with 6 different women?
    Tim Tebow’s mom applauds!

  21. Kevin from Philly says: Mar 17, 2010 10:36 AM

    Good thing he’s moving to NYC, where all the women stay virgins until marriage.

  22. madden42 says: Mar 17, 2010 10:48 AM

    Florio, you moron. Get the story right. Cromartie didn’t pay anything. The Jets did. He’s another worthless, self-important athlete. Its unfortunate society celebrates these degenerates.

  23. leatherneck says: Mar 17, 2010 11:02 AM

    Six different women are now shopping for new cars.
    Child support is such a joke. The mothers take their “child support” and blow it on smokes, booze, cars, and their own needs first. You never hear about some child support money being left over and saved for the child in a savings account for college. Oh no. The “caring mother” always spends every last dime.
    Child support exploits fathers to pay mothers and forget about the kids, nobody cares.
    Same with all races.

  24. CuMoNmYtUmMy says: Mar 17, 2010 11:04 AM

    wow seriously? Yes he’s got issues but can’t you post something a little more related to the on-field aspects of the game despite being the offseason and all?

  25. Luck says: Mar 17, 2010 11:07 AM

    Cromartie has seven children by six women in five states with four cars and three houses and two apartments and a partridge in a pear tree.

  26. buffbeerz says: Mar 17, 2010 11:11 AM

    After reading this I have just one thing to say…..GO PATS!!!!!

  27. d-rob28 says: Mar 17, 2010 11:12 AM

    @ BoltsFan That was a very racist comment.. I started to ignore it but I got one better for you.. I can assure you he’s impregnated some white women as well, like every other pro athlete.. Do your research.. Idiot.

  28. MrHumble says: Mar 17, 2010 11:12 AM

    7 kids by 6 different women, needs his employer to pay his child support, hates to tackle and plays when he wants to play…….sure glad he’s not on my team. The Jets will have to do a “jerry pimpman Jones” and hire people to follow cromartie around, tuck him into bed at nite, feed him and stroke him, LMAO……the Jets are gonna regret this move bigtime!! And let’s face it, the main reason LT signed with the Jets is becuz he thinks he has the chance to be the main RB which is going to cause clubhouse dissension. The current team is already pissed off about the Jets releasing T. Jones and now LT will try to make it his team. I see a team of multiple egos and just waiting to implode. (Cromartie, LT, Edwards , mega egos with a second year QB and a combustible Rex Ryan as headcoach. Fans may think the Jets are improving but look no further than the Skins who sign “ego’s” instead of team players.

  29. Old School says: Mar 17, 2010 11:13 AM

    By the time he gets his next check sometime in fall, he’ll be behind again. What a dumbass!

  30. Jabberwocky says: Mar 17, 2010 11:17 AM

    Maybe he should think about paying for a large box of condoms the next time he does his best impression of Hugh Heffner.

    “wow seriously? Yes he’s got issues but can’t you post something a little more related to the on-field aspects of the game despite being the offseason and all?”
    First, he’s got issues? No kidding!!! He’s the definition of a spoiled brat, retarded athlete. 7 kids in 6 states and he’s how old? Pathetic…. And for those saying that the women are trapping him for money or something, give me a break. This idiot knows what he’s doing. And if you’re so dumb that you get trapped by 6 completely different women, one of them twice, in all corners of the country, maybe you aren’t smart enough to exist on our planet. That’s pretty stupid.
    Secondly, you want more aspects of on-field related aspects of the game. Well, this doesn’t seem to be the case when the press and all the bloggers are jumping all over a 21 year old young man with great character simply because he’s trying to do all he can to be a good player someday in the NFL, so why should this idiot get a pass. Half of the people that sympathize with the Cromarties of the football world are the quickest ones to bash future players that actually have character and should be celebrated.
    If you don’t believe me, tune in this afternoon or evening, after Tebow has finished throwing and see all the nasty comments about a 21 year old that’s just trying to make it. Pretty sad. Those are the characters we should be celebrating, whether he ends up being a good future player or not.

  32. brownsfn says: Mar 17, 2010 11:54 AM

    wheres BLUE EYED DEVIL to defend this scumbag???? ***crickets***

  33. BillWynz says: Mar 17, 2010 12:01 PM

    While many of the comments posted regarding Cromartie are humorous, and insightful let’s remember that the real tragedies here are those children who are left to pretty much fend for themselves. I find it incredible that these women are willing to become breeders just to ensure that they will have income coming in…for those of you who thought we closed the loop on the welfare system…here’s the new version (LOL).
    However, these children are the future Cromarties if he doesn’t “man up” and become a real father instead of trying to put a new spin on the old tale about “Johnny Apple Seed”.

  34. Cake Or Death says: Mar 17, 2010 12:01 PM

    I thought LT wanted to get away from clowns like this.

  35. MrHumble says: Mar 17, 2010 12:27 PM

    A second year RB who thought he was the man….here comes LT, a second year QB who wants to be the man but here comes a whole slew of egos, a wr who can’t catch a ball but wants to be the “go to guy”, an over the hill HOF RB who wants to prove he still “has” what we all know he doesn’t have anymore, a second year headcoach who is a chip off his ole’ man’s block and just as crazy, a new safety who needs the team to pay his child support and tuck him into bed at nite……..oh yea, this is gonna be one hellva an implosion next year. Danny Snyder welcome Mr. Tannenbaum to your exclusive “how to mess up a team” club.

  36. hnirobert says: Mar 17, 2010 12:57 PM

    And to celebrate this, he decided to have another!

  37. RodgersIsn'tAPussy says: Mar 17, 2010 1:21 PM

    Seven kids by six different mothers – the poster example of liberalism. Over-breeding irresponsible idiots. Not even a millionaire athlete is immune from wanting Obamacare and other hand-outs. Amazing.

  38. Kevin from Philly says: Mar 17, 2010 1:49 PM

    Does he have to pay support for the partridge?

  39. tom coughlin's coat holder says: Mar 17, 2010 3:01 PM

    it would not be a real stretch of the imagination to believe that mr.cromartie will be flat broke when he leaves football.then,thankfully,we can pick up the tab for his spawn.america,what a country.

  40. TheWizard says: Mar 17, 2010 5:27 PM

    The bigger point everyone seems to miss are the 7 young lives ruined before they get started.
    Good luck with that karma, bud.

  41. ChunkyAssVomit says: Mar 18, 2010 6:38 PM

    Young lives ruined while he pays more money then most of our Dad’s EVER make.
    Yea… don’t blame the mom WIZARD.
    He has to pay the $.
    What Mommy does with it will determine living conditions.
    It’s all his fault.
    Let me guess,
    you anti condom too ?
    You people need to start adopting and
    stop passing judgment.
