New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is leaving the team and moving west as he joins the Arizona Cardinals. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that Cromartie had signed a one-year deal with the Cards for undisclosed financial terms.


It looks like Cromartie leaving the Jets wasn’t amicable because he is going on a Twitter rant. However he deleted the tweets just minutes after venting.

“It’s amazing how you can be so loyal to someone and they can be so disloyal to you. But you live and you learn,” Cromartie wrote on Twitter. “I learned today that it is possible to turn the other cheek when someone slaps you in the face..”

One day athletes will learn that it doens’t matter how quickly you delete the tweet someone out there, me in this case, will still catch it with a screen shot. The temptation of venting on social media just continually proves to be too tempting to resist.

[UPDATE:] He is going with the “hacked” excuse.

    Another example of Cromartie’s immaturity. The Jets paid him more than he was worth, and one could argue, gambled on him and saved his career. Just typical Cromartie…spoiled, self centere athletes are all alike! This guy just comes off a bit more ungrateful then the rest! Good Riddance Cro!!

    If that came from the wife, then it sounds like he’s cheating on her lol

    Cro was certainly a productive member of the Jets, and I don’t blame him for thinking he took a slap in the face. He had an all-pro year in 2012 and then was injured in 2013. He was one of the best athletes on the Jets. In Arizona, with that secondary, he will make an impact if healthy. The Jets didn’t need to sign him for $10 M for a year. He’s getting a 1 year deal for $3M from the Cards. We couldn’t offer him 1 year for $4-5 with all the money we have to spend, and a cap floor to get above before 2016? Maybe draft day will be a day of celebration.
