Buzz: Cromartie visiting Cardinals

Antonio Cromartie is visiting the Arizona Cardinals organization on Thursday (Mehta, March 13).

The Jets released Cromartie on Monday, saving $9.5 million in cap space (TJB, March 9).

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Despite how the last three days have gone, we don’t expect a reunion between the Jets and Antonio Cromartie.  Both sides seem prepared to move on.

While the best four corners (Revis, Verner, Davis and Talib) are off the board, there are still a lot of good players remaining in free agency and some that would best fit the Jets.  We expect that the Jets might be active in the second round of corners.

Rodgers-Cromartie is the best of who is left, despite his retirement talk.  Former Panther Captain Munnerlyn is a very underrated cornerback that we believe could be a solid plug-and-play option for the Jets.  Munnerlyn isn’t flashy, but he’s not going to get his doors blown off either.  Then there’s some options like Walter Thurmond, Tarrell Brown or even Brandon Browner.  Short term fixes, but they are a trio of players who could come in and bolster the secondary.

Question: If Munnerlyn measured 5'9" at the combine, why does everyone say he's 5'8"?

I'm still hoping we bring Cro back given what's left on the market.  If he's healed, he still is a very solid CB.

Too bad we don't need a NT, getting Wilfork would bug the Pats

Oh well, atleast he isn't joining Revis in New England, can you imagine that, and Cromartie actually recovering and being 100%? And we playing that tandem twice a year Oh boy..lol, I wish the Jets can convert him into a free safety, he should definately be productive there.

I hope Bruce Arians walks slow down the hallways or Cro won't be able to keep up without grabbing the guys shirt

@Brendan  Do we really want/need this short guy Brendan? He ain't no Captain to me yet....

They say that just to knock what ever players the jets interested in media always try to find a problem or make one @Brendan

@kniff When the hate is this intense, it has to mean it was a good signing...

@bob Because he's easy, easy like Sunday morning, yeah...

@kniff I just find it odd that the same fan base that had Aaron Glenn beasting out there for so long is so against a short CB. 


Dude has a 37" vertical, too, so he's a dynamic lil' guy.

@Brendan @SackDance99Before every game, he used to give Bob Kraft a kiss...just thinking how jealous Booby would be if Big Vince gave Woody a kiss every week

@SackDance99 @kniff  Your Op carries a lot of clout in my book SD... I know you feel good about this one, as well as the Giacomini signing...keeping the faith on my end bro, don't mind me if my knees shake a little during this turbulent time for us!! lol

@Brendan @rstysanchz  He was 5'8" and a half.


Maybe he can dunk and wants it to sound more impressive.

@Pat d  I know. He's not the elite player he once was. The Jets have two NT's that are better than him right now.
