    Jets reworking part of Antonio Cromartie's 2010 deal, turning about $500K into bonus. No new money involved. More details on NFL.com.

    Probably so Cro gets some money now to fix his child support payments...

    Aaaaaah. Smart move. They are trying to help him out in his current Child Support arrears with out giving him any new money.

    Advance on his check

    they want him focused and obligated to the organization...not bad.

    Also a good move because its an uncapped year. It frees up money later on...If and When the cap comes back.

    Tanny is already thinking ahead!

    Cro needs money for his kids and to pay his former agent.

    He wouldn't have gotten paid until week 1 and would have made $500,000 by week 5. Now, he gets that money up front.

    They are also setting up direct deposit escrow accounts for child support.

    Cromartie reminds me of the NFL version of Shawn Kemp! Any one remember how many kids w/ how many different women? use protection!

    Jets give Cromartie $500,000 up front

    [URL="http://www.thejetsblog.com/2010/03/07/jets-give-cromartie-500000/"]http://www.thejetsblog.com/2010/03/07/jets-give-cromartie-500000/[/URL]

    Great move by the Jets FO to help him clear out his off field issues.

    As I mentioned earlier this morning the Jets decided to restructure Antonio Cromartie’s contract. According to Hutch, the Jets will give Cro $500,000 up front as a “bonus.” This is in light of the fact that Cromartie has a court date coming up this month and is short on money.

    The Jets have stepped up, giving Cromartie $500,000 in up-front money (in the form of a bonus) on the final year of a contract that’ll pay him $1.7 million in 2010, according to the NFL Network.

    During a conference call with beat reporters on Friday, Cromartie spoke of how he had to clear up his paternity issues before he can report to the start of the offseason program on March 22. He has a court date in California later this month.

    It’s good to see the Jets have stepped up and given Cromartie the money. It allows him to clear up his personal issues off the field while establishing a new phase of his life (hopefully). [B]Perhaps this early “bond” between the FO and Cromartie will mark the beginning of a long term friendship[/B]. [/QUOTE]

    Maybe not,after the bonus to pay off his child support debt is done,cro takes home 1.25 million this year. The man was seriously behind on his child support payments while playing in San Diego,how is he going to adapt that Lifestyle to live in New York? I doubt that he is grateful to the Jets for cleaning up his mess. He has children that he probably has never met that are cutting deeply into his lifestyle. The dude thinks he is a star that deserves that star lifestyle. Cro is a problem that is going to hurt the Jets this season

    Read some of the articles in the NY papers since the trade that contain quotes from Cro....
