Four days after being released by the New York Jets in an expected move, cornerback Antonio Cromartie could be on the verge of finding a new address. On Thursday, Cromartie is visiting with the Arizona Cardinals, according to a league source.
The Cards are looking for a cornerback to play opposite Patrick Peterson, and Cromartie is high on their wish list. This would be a blow to the Jets because, even though they released him, the sides agreed to leave the door open for a possible return. Cromartie acknowledged that Monday in a radio interview.
The Jets have a gaping hole at cornerback. The top corners are off the market, although they showed serious interest in only one -- Vontae Davis, who ended up re-signing with the Indianapolis Colts. They expressed no interest in a reunion with Darrelle Revis, who ended up with the New England Patriots.
Maybe Cromartie's visit to the desert will prompt the Jets to step up. They had to cut him -- he was due a $5 million roster bonus and had a $15 million cap charge -- but you never say never in the NFL.
