Jets release Antonio Cromartie, might want to bring him back

Antonio CromartieThe New York Jets released cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Sunday, days before he was due a $5 million roster bonus. Cromartie, who has been with the Jets the past four seasons, tweeted the news about his release.

Cromartie knew he was likely to be cut by the team; the move saves the team $9.5 million against the cap. Though the team plans to explore other cornerback options — they’ve expressed interest in Alterraun Verner — they would likely want to bring Cromartie back for a lower price.

Distracted by off-field issues, Cromartie initially played poorly with the Jets, but he had an excellent 2012 season before having a rough time last season because of an injury. He’s still a fine cornerback and will draw plenty of interest on the open market.
