For Those Who Might Want Antonio Cromartie

New, comments

Lately, in looking at the players who are going to be free agents or possibly available via trade, a lot of Baltimore Ravens fans have been debating the possibility of bringing in the San Diego Chargers cornerback, Antonio Cromartie. After grabbing ten picks in 2007, he's only had a combined five interceptions the last two seasons. Cromartie has the size to be one of the bigger CB's on this team and at 6'2" and 203 pounds, you'd think he'd be a thumper in the secondary. Unfortunately, that is not looking to be the case with him as he heads into his fifth NFL season.

Here is a link to a hilarious site that has posted a fictitious Facebook exchange between Cromartie and his defensive teammates "during" the Chargers playoff game against the New York Jets, with accompanying videos.

Here are Antonio Cromartie's career stats off of the ESPN team page of the San Diego Chargers:
