With the Chargers secondary needing improvement, Cromartie is expected to make major contributions in his rookie season - especially in a division that features many three-receiver sets.
He picked off four passes in 2004, returning one for a touchdown. Despite missing all of 2005 with a torn ACL, Antonio Cromartie wowed scouts with a 4.37 forty-yard dash, a 43-inch vertical jump and an 11-0 broad jump at the NFL Combines.
The deal is worth $12.75 million with $7.35 million guaranteed. There is reportedly an option buyout after one season that would cost the Chargers $4.32 million to clear Cromartie from the books.
