Antonio Cromartie Signs with New York Jets
The New York Jets and corner back Antonio Cromartie have agreed to terms on a contract. According to Manish Mehta, Jets columnist for the New York Daily News, the contract is said to be a four-year deal with a base value of $32 million. Cromartie, who played with the Jets in the 2010-2013 seasons, reunites with, not only, the Jets, but also Darrelle Revis.
Cromartie spent the last season in Arizona with the Cardinals, playing along side corner back Patrick Peterson. Recently hired Jets head coach, Todd Bowles, spent the 2013-14 season as the defensive coordinator in Arizona, under Bruce Arians, AP Coach of the Year.
Cromartie turned a few eyes during the 2014 season. Playing along Peterson aided his performance, to an extent, and Cromartie showed the National Football League (NFL) why he is a talented defensive back. Reuniting with the Jets is one thing, but reuniting with Revis is a dynamic difference. The Jets have made their secondary a priority through free agency, signing names such as Revis, Buster Skrine, and now Cromartie.
With a new general manager (GM) and a new head coach, the Jets have moved passed their miserable state of mind and intend to compete, with their revamped secondary, in 2015.
