Once again, Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has gone on Twitter and said he disagrees with the players’ leadership in their ongoing labor battle with NFL owners.
Although the NFLPA* has suggested that top college prospects shouldn’t attend the NFL draft as long as the owners are locking the players out, Cromartie tweeted today that he thinks those players should be there.
“I hope all the top guys go to Radio City and get the experience as everyone else did,” Cromartie wrote. “I think the fans that go radio city loves it.”
Cromartie previously called the union leadership “a–holes” in a comment that led to several other players shooting back that Cromartie didn’t know what he was talking about. This time, Cromartie says he knows of what he speaks: “I’m speaking as fan and as a guy who got drafted. I couldn’t wait till that day.”
When a fan wrote to Cromartie that he should attend the draft and sit among the Jets’ fans, Cromartie answered, “ok I’m there.”
It remains to be seen whether Cromartie is the only player in attendance on draft day.
