The New York Jets are thin at cornerback and they are running out of options on the open market. One of the players still available is Antonio Cromartie, who spent the past few seasons with the team, and there is at least one Jets defender who is hoping that the team will decide to bring him back to town.
Calvin Pace, who was released by the Jets only to be re-signed later at a lower salary, is hoping that the team will take that same strategy with Cromartie just one year later.
“Yeah. Yes and no. Don’t get me wrong, we have some players on the roster that still can go out and get the job done,” Pace said, via the New York Daily News. “Hopefully we can get (Cromartie) back. I hope that is still in the plans.”
If the Jets don’t land Cromartie, their secondary is going to be lacking at true starting cornerback.
One of the top options on their roster right now is last year’s first-round pick Dee Milliner, who struggled greatly as a rookie.
There is clear room for improvement.
