I wonder if Cromartie understands that by saying this, it isn’t a good thing for the Jets?
If your starting corner is your 2nd best receiver that means your receiving core sucks and your passing game will be terrible.
But, no one ever accused Cro of being rational in his decisions.
Antonio Cromartie is still listed as a cornerback, and not a wide receiver. But Cromartie says that if the Jets go through with plans to give him an extensive role in the offense, he’ll be the second-best receiver on the team.
Cromartie said today on ESPN First Take that if he has to rank himself within the Jets’ receiving corps, he’d say he’s the No. 2 option on the team.
“I think I’d put myself as second,” Cromartie said. “I haven’t really played it in the past four or five years, but I can put myself as the second just with raw ability and talent going out there, I think, me separating and being a more physical guy out there on the outside.”
