Conflicting Reports Surface On Cromartie’s Future With Jets

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis wants New York to re-sign Antonio Cromartie. He may get his wish… or not.

According to NFL Network analyst Michael Lombardi, Cromartie might have played his last game in green and white.

“I think they’re willing to let him walk,” Lombardi said Wednesday night on NFL Total Access, citing his sources. “They’ll allow him to become a free agent, and they’ll focus their attention on Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes.”

However, the Daily News’ Manish Mehta disputes Lombardi’s report.

“Sources tell me that no decision has been made on A. Cromartie’s future with Jets,” Mehta tweeted. “Still a priority for NYJ once free agency starts.”

The controversial Cromartie, who popped off at Tom Brady, NFLPA leaders and Matt Hasselbeck last month, is slated to become a free agent once the NFL’s labor agreement expires.

Either way, Revis is on record. He wants Cromartie back.

“I hope Mike Tannenbaum and Rex pull for the guy to keep him here,” Revis told the Star-Ledger during Super Bowl week. “He played a big role in our defense and he helped out a lot, made a lot of plays.”

The Jets were busy last offseason by making a series of high-profile signings, cuts and trades on their way to a second straight trip to the AFC championship game. New York will again have several players to address this offseason in addition to Cromartie, including wide receivers Holmes, Edwards and Brad Smith.

      Trade Harris? That’s insane he has been one of the best lbs and led the jets in tackles the past few years. Overpaid Bart Scott is the problem for INLB. Edwards led the team at receiver making huge catches all season and only 2 drops. He is no longer stone handed. His size alone is hard enough to find and was huge for sanchez. Holmes should be resigned but resigning cromartie will be a question.

    GOOD MORNING JETS FAN .NY JETS NEED WAKE UP THEY NEED RESIGN CROMARTIE AND HOLMES AND TRADE HARRIS AND EDWARDS
