Antonio Cromartie isn’t hurting for confidence.
Cromartie, the Cardinals cornerback who recently declared that the two best cornerbacks in the NFL are himself and his old Jets teammate Darrelle Revis, is mocking those who say he’s not quite the same player at age 30 as he was a few years ago.
Cromartie posted a video on Instagram that he says shows him running a 4.34-second 40-yard dash at the end of a workout, and with that video he posted a message scoffing at anyone who thinks he’s slowing down.
“And ppl say I’ve lost a step. Only thing I can do laugh at you all. Ran 4.34 & 4.36 in the 40 today after a workout and I’m only getting faster,” Cromartie wrote.
Expecting Cromartie or any other athlete to get faster after turning 30 is unrealistic. The Cardinals don’t need Cromartie to be a Top 2 cornerback in the NFL like he thinks he is, they just have to hope Cromartie has enough left that he’s a strong No. 2 cornerback to go along with Patrick Peterson.
