Cardinals GM: Antonio Cromartie likely to test the market


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Cardinals general manager Steve Keim told CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora that he expects some of his impending free agents like cornerback Antonio Cromartie to test the market before he has a feel of whether they will return to the club.

Cromartie recently said that picking the Jets -- who hired former Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles as their new coach -- in free agency would be an "easy choice." Cromartie made $3.5 million on a one-year contract in 2014. He played four years under former Jets coach Rex Ryan and spent last season under Bowles in Arizona.


Picking Jets would be 'easy choice' for Antonio Cromartie


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2015) Cornerback Antonio Cromartie made it clear that the Jets are a big-time contender for his services, as long as they're interested in him this offseason.

Speaking to the New York Post, Cromartie, who spent 2014 with the Cardinals, was asked about the chance of returning to the franchise he spent four years from 2010-2013 with.

"It would be an easy choice, if the opportunity presented itself," Cromartie said.

Part of the appeal for Cromartie to return to the Jets would be the fact they hired former Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles as their new head coach.

Cromartie said he wants to join a Super Bowl contender and he thinks the Jets can be one. He added the Jets defense under Bowles should stay aggressive.

"You're gonna see more blitzes, more than you saw from Rex Ryan, actually," Cromartie said.

Cromartie totaled 46 tackels and three interceptions this past season.


Cardinals' Peterson said it may be tough to keep Cromartie


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson would like to keep teammate Antonio Cromartie in the secondary. However, he understands that may be a difficult task to pull off.

Speaking to ESPN.com, Peterson said that Cromartie, set to become a free agent in March, has talked about possibly heading back to the Jets, where he played from 2010-2013. Making the Jets more attractive is the fact that former Cardinals defenisve coordinator Todd Bowles took over as the new head coach.

"That's all he talks about is freaking New York," Peterson said. "I'm definitely trying to get him to stay and we'll see what happens."

In a previous interview with the NFL Network, Cromartie made mention that he will keep his options open this offseason.

"I'm leaving the door open," Cromartie said. "Right now, until the Super Bowl is over, I'm still an Arizona Cardinal. Until they come to me about a contract, I’m still an Arizona Cardinal. Once March 10 at 4 o'clock hits, March 12 at 9 a.m. hits, and no one's offered me a contract, then I'm free game. And I'm open to anything to go out and try to win a championship and help any organization."


Antonio Cromartie open to Jets reunion with Todd Bowles?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2015) With free agency approaching, Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie said on NFL Network that he's "leaving the door open," even for a reunion with the Jets, after they hired Todd Bowles -- someone Cromartie is familiar with. Cromartie, who made $3.5 million on a one-year contract this season, played four years under former Jets coach Rex Ryan and spent last season under Bowles in Arizona.

"I'm leaving the door open," Cromartie said. "Right now, until the Super Bowl is over, I'm still an Arizona Cardinal. Until they come to me about a contract, I’m still an Arizona Cardinal. Once March 10 at 4 o'clock hits, March 12 at 9 a.m. hits, and no one's offered me a contract, then I'm free game. And I'm open to anything to go out and try to win a championship and help any organization."


Impending FA Antonio Cromartie feels 'comfortable' with Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2015) Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who will be a free agent this offseason, indicated that he has a level of comfort in Arizona and would like to be back, though he remained noncommittal about his future, AZCardinals.com reports.

"I feel comfortable here," Cromartie said. "All the young guys that are here, especially in the defensive backs room, they grow on you. It’s just a point of seeing what happens in the offseason and go from there."

Coach Bruce Arians said he'd like to have the cornerback back in Arizona in 2015. Cromartie played in all 16 games for the fourth straight season, recording three interceptions and returning a fumble for a touchdown. He also picked off a pass in the team's Wild Card loss against the Panthers Saturday.

Cardinals DST carries more risk than last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.

Bruce Arians defends Antonio Cromartie's coverage skills


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians knows opponents will attack cornerback Antonio Cromartie because they don't want to throw at All-Pro Patrick Peterson on the other side of the field. Arians insists he's fine with that, despite Cromartie giving up seven touchdown passes and a 100.7 passer rating last year. 

"I love the fact that there's going to be a lot of balls thrown at him, because I didn't throw that many when I was playing against him," Arians said, per ESPN.com.

Quentin Jammer can't see Jets losing Antonio Cromartie


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) The Jets are likely to allow three highly paid players to leave in free agency, ESPN has speculated.
