Report: Cardinals to host Antonio Cromartie

The Cardinals are reportedly taking a look at former Jets cornerback Antonio Cromarie.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports Cromartie, a three-time Pro Bowler, will meet with Arizona on Thursday.

The Jets released Cromartie (6-2, 214) on Sunday. A ninth-year pro, Cromartie has intercepted 28 passes in regular season play, and he has missed just one game in his NFL career. He turns 30 in April.

Cromartie ranks No. 48 on PFT’s updated list of the top free agents of 2014.

Patrick Peterson and Jerraud Powers are the Cardinals’ top two cornerbacks.

    With him and Patrick Peterson, that’d be a great set of corners. Get HoneyBadger healthy again, and this great Arizona defense just got even better.

    This secondary would be mean with adding Cromartie, who is far better than Cason or Powers who played opposite PP last year.

    DBU!

    The Cards lost Dansby, Roberts, and Dray, but signed some solid FA along with a raw, talented, and extremely promising left tackle of the future who needs only some technical improvements.
    They kept Shauanessy and other important and crucial role players.
    They get Cooper back.
    They will get the Honey Badger back after the beginning of the season which is OK since that also saves some wear and tear on the smaller, but powerful guy. They just hope he can retain his closing burst of speed which allowed him to make most of his spectacular plays.
    Now add in Cromartie and possibly Ginn and the Cards truly become the sure lock to beat the current Vegas line for the number of games they will win next season which is 7.

    If Arizona gets Cro – and he’s healthy – you guys won’t be disappointed.

    Cro grew up as a leader on the field and as a person off the field during his four years as a Jet. Forget the rough 2013 which was due to him playing through a hip injury, this guy was a pleasure to watch and root for.

    Most Jets fans will always remember his huge kickoff return against Indianapolis in the playoffs which spurred a last second FG victory.

    Truly hope he comes back to NY, but if not, good luck in AZ Cro.

    How many of kids is he bringing along?

  7. realnflmaster says: Mar 13, 2014 4:28 PM

    Do these guys only sign players over 30?

  8. denver1983 says: Mar 13, 2014 4:29 PM

    cool

  9. DrSteveBrule says: Mar 13, 2014 4:29 PM

    Why not just bring back the younger and faster DRC?

  10. jetsfaninindy says: Mar 13, 2014 4:34 PM

    Nooooooo!

  11. loyalraven says: Mar 13, 2014 4:36 PM

    Not a good fit. Arizona doesn’t have a big enough daycare center.

  12. jeffnfl says: Mar 13, 2014 4:40 PM

    Because DRC turned down 6yr 54mil from Denver. Cardinals know better than to pay him that.

    And all the right guys over 30, maybe….

    Cromartie to OAKLAND

    Sheriff Joe hates dead beat Dad’s. If I was Cro I wouldn’t let the plane touch down in Phoenix.

  15. jetsfan67 says: Mar 13, 2014 5:20 PM

    I hope Jets re sign Cro, if not you guys will have a great secondary.

  16. purpleguy says: Mar 13, 2014 5:24 PM

    I wonder why this guy never sticks with a team — do his teammates get sick of all the kids running around the locker room?

  17. dapollock69 says: Mar 13, 2014 5:25 PM

    With all the kids he’s sired, he should start his own team. Maybe even his own league.
