Jets are keeping door open for Cromartie, for now

When admitting on NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk that he’ll likely be cut by the Jets, cornerback Antonio Cromartie said he nevertheless hopes to retire with the team.

There’s a chance, albeit small, that it’ll happen.

Per a league source, the Jets haven’t closed the door on re-signing Cromartie.  However, it’s currently believed they have another cornerback already locked up.

Of course, the Jets aren’t currently permitted to have anything more than negotiations that don’t lead to an agreement.  But the thinking is that, before cutting Cromartie loose, the Jets became satisfied that negotiations with another cornerback will become an offer and an acceptance as of 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

If the non-binding winking and nodding and negotiating falls apart by then, the Jets could be bringing back Cromartie.

    Cromartie shouldn’t wait around to be a fallback option. That sounds pretty humiliating.

    The mothers of his children hope he walks through their door sometime soon.

    Cromartie has had it tough. You try to remember all the cards he needs send out on Mothers day!

    jets can have an agreement, binding or not, the league turns a blind eye, but if another team did it, there’d be congressional hearings and a huge fine. Must be nice to have the NFL flagshipped in nyc.

    We all know he’s going to Seattle to shine Richard Sherman’s shoes.

    Verner > Cromartie.

    Welcome to NY!

    The illegitimate kids aside, Cromartie’s really cleaned up his act in recent years. Like, seriously. And he’s one of the nicest, most personable guys around. For example, a few weeks ago, some rando on twitter tweeted, “I just saw Antonio Cromartie at the airport,” and Cromartie tweeted back, “I’m still here. Why don’t you come say hi?” and the guy went over and got a picture with Cromartie.

    He does stuff like that a lot, and it’s worth noting. Yes, he was irresponsible earlier in his life, but he didn’t kill, rape, or assault anybody. He’s never even been arrested. On the whole, he’s a pretty damned good guy.
