The New York Jets lost out in their bid to bring in free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Thus, the Jets turned to the cornerback Asomugha would have replaced, Antonio Croamrtie, and are bringing Cromartie back for his second season in New York.
"They say Cro is back, Cro is back all GangGreen fans say is Cro…lol," Cromartie wrote on his Twitter page. "I’m on my FLT headed home glad 2 b a JET…let’s go win a Superbowl."
Cromartie reportedly signed a four-year contract worth $32 million to once again team with Darrell Revis to give the Jets a formidable set of cornerbacks.
The Jets could even use Cromartie as a kickoff returner, something he did in San Diego before coming to the Jets. He did that in a limited capacity for New York last season. The Jets lose return specialist Brad Smith to San Diego as a free agent.
The Jets will hold their first official training camp practice this afternoon.
