Antonio Cromartie had a great year with the Arizona Cardinals but his future with the team is in question. Pro-Bowl teammate Patrick Peterson has been campaigning all season for Cromartie to return but he’s not sure that he has won him over.
“I’m definitely trying to keep him here. It’s going to be tough, especially with [former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator] Todd [Bowles] being in New York and he loves [New York]. That’s all he talks about is freaking New York. I’m definitely trying to get him to stay and we’ll see what happens,” via ESPN.com.
When asked about returning to the New York area Cromartie said,
“It’s attractive, My house is there, so it’s attractive. But if that doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. At the end of the day, I got to make sure that my options are open and making sure that whatever decision I make, that it’s related to my family and making sure we’re making the right decision not only for me but also for them. It not only affects me, it affects them also with changing schools and for my kids and everything.”
Cromartie signed a 1-year deal with the Cardinals in 2014 worth $3.5 million and has one of his best seasons since 2008. He player with the New York Jets from 2010-2013 and is set to become a free agent on March 10th.
