Dealing with a nagging hip injury, Antonio Cromartie may not play during either of the Jets’ final two regular season games this season.
“I expect to be here, yeah,” he said. “It’s my eighth year, I have a big bonus coming in March, which is not guaranteed, but still, I expect to be here. I want to be here. This is where I want to finish my career, and that’s it.”
It’s an admirable statement though there could be some hefty changes coming to the Jets roster this offseason, which could include Cromartie – especially given his hip issue.
Cromartie isn’t the player he was earlier in his career and while not completely ineffective, he’s certainly expendable in a potential roster purge.
Of course, if Cromartie is open to restructuring his contract, he’d likely increase his chances of sticking around.
