Jets’ Cromartie: Outside Revis, I’m Best Cornerback In NFL

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Antonio Cromartie has already claimed his position as the Jets’ second-best wide receiver.

Turns out he also thinks he’s the No. 2 cornerback in the NFL. And with Darrelle Revis out, Cromartie said Thursday that he now reigns supreme.

“None,” Cromartie told the New York Daily News when asked how many cornerbacks — outside of Revis — boasted a better game.

Cromartie answered “Yup” to a series of follow-up questions, including whether he was better than Eagles star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugah.

The 28-year-old, who called the Jets “Revis’ team,” admitted he struggles at times with his focus and consistency.

There’s no such issue with Cromartie’s confidence.

“I have said that I’m the second-best corner in the NFL,” he told the Daily News. “I’m not backing off what I said. I don’t care what anyone else believe… I know what I’m capable of when I’m at the top of my game.”

Cromartie has nine tackles (six solo) on the season, and returned his lone interception for a touchdown in Week 1 against the Bills.

Who do you think is better than Cromartie? Be heard in the comments below…
