Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork is reporting that the New York Jets have signed defensive back Antonio Cromartie to a 4-year, $32 million dollar deal. Cimini reports that the contract is $4 million per year less than Nnamdi Asomugha’s contract with the Eagles and $1.75 million per year less than Jonathan Joseph’s deal with the Texans.
With all things considered this is a good move by the Jets as Cromartie played very well for Gang Green last year and he was the best available cornerback on the free agent market. Cromartie offered the following words on Twitter early Monday morning:
@A_Cromartie31: They say Cro is back, Cro is back all #GangGreen fans say is Cro…lol I’m on my FLT headed home glad 2 b a JET…let’s go win a Superbowl
@A_Cromartie31: Ok guys taking off c u guys at Florham Park…God Bless u all…Jet sailing 2 be a JET…goodnight 2 some and good morning to others I’m out
