The Jets have acquired Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie in a trade for a conditional pick in 2011. Yep, one pick. That’s so unfair that half the guys in my fantasy football league are emailing Roger Goodell to complain.
Cornerback depth was among the most pressing needs for the Jets. Although they ranked first in the N.F.L. in pass defense last season, the Jets needed a starting cornerback opposite Darrelle Revis, especially after Lito Sheppard was released. –The Fifth Down.
It’s worth noting that Cromartie hasn’t been the ideal professional during his four years in San Diego; he owes money in traffic fines and child support. He has seven children with six women in five different states and a partridge in a pear tree. No, seriously, that is one potent dude.
