On Sunday, the New York Jets released one of their more experienced, and effective, pieces from the defensive side of the ball when they cut veteran defensive back Antonio Cromartie.
Still, though, while Cromartie plans to test the Free Agent market right now, he didn’t completely rule out a return to the Meadowlands with the Jets, if that’s his best option in the end.
“The door’s still open,” Cromartie said on ESPN Radio about a possible return to Gang Green. “But I’m going to test the market, see where my numbers are.”
At quick glance, with his play dropping off a little bit the past few years, the market for Cromartie might not be as wide open as he thinks, but it’s still not going to hurt to see what’s out there for the former Florida State Seminoles star.
Despite the injury bug that might be a concern to some teams, Cromartie stated that it shouldn’t be that much of a concern going forward.
“You’re going to see the Antonio Cromartie of old,” he said. “I’m healthy. The biggest thing for me is, I’m going to prove it.”
