Jets acquire Cromartie from San Diego
The Jets didn’t waste much time finding Lito Sheppard’s replacement. Late Thursday night, the team agreed to send a 2011 third-round draft pick to the San Diego Chargers for former All-Pro cornerback Antonio Cromartie. The pick could escalate to a second rounder, based on how Cromartie performs in 2010.
Cromartie, who has a lot of talent but has a reputation of having attitude problems, joins a talented Jets defense that had a hole at CB opposite Darrelle Revis. The 6′2″, 211 lb player was formerly a first round pick of the Chargers in 2006 after playing for Florida State. He made the Pro Bowl and was named All-Pro in 2007.
