Cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who has fallen out of favor in San Diego due to a stew of reasons that likely includes an alarming lack of tackling effort during the AFC playoffs, has been on the trading block for a while.
And he apparently will soon be off the block — because he apparently will soon be traded.
According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Cromartie “could be” a Lion in the near future. There are no details regarding the compensation that Chargers would receive.
Trades officially can be made as of the first day of the league year, which this year is March 5. But teams can loosely agree to terms before March 5, with the deal consummated at some point after the clock strikes 12.
As Acee points out, regardless of whether Cromartie becomes a Lion, Cromartie “has almost certainly” played his last game with San Diego.
Meanwhile, feel free to start making the Wizard of Oz references. Bonus points are available if you can tie them together with the whole Travis Henry thing.
