Antonio Cromartie won’t be playing in an Arizona Cardinals uniform in 2015.
As expected, Cromartie tested the free agency waters and found a familiar suitor in the New York Jets. Cromartie played for the Jets from 2010-2013 and will reunite with former teammate Darrelle Revis in New York.
Cromartie did an admirable job during his one season in the desert playing opposite of Patrick Peterson in the Cardinals’ defensive backfield. Cromartie intercepted three passes and racked up 43 tackles in 2014.
With Cromartie now out of the picture, Justin Bethel is expected to move up the depth chart and assume the starting role opposite of Peterson.
Arizona will look to the draft for help at the cornerback position – particularly in the later rounds where the team has found success in identifying contributors in the secondary.
