NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Antonio Cromartie will be in Hawaii on January 26.

The Jets’ cornerback will take the place of Patriots star Aqib Talib, who injured his knee in the AFC Championship Game against the Broncos on Sunday.

Cromartie is the second Jet to replace a player in the NFL’s All-Star Game. Center Nick Mangold has replaced the Seahawks’ Max Unger.

Cromartie was previously a Pro Bowl selection in 2007 and 2012.

The 29-year-old is entering the final year of his contract, and it will cost the Jets a pretty penny to keep him. Cromartie has a $14.98 million cap charge in 2014, and he struggled this past season.

The two-time Pro Bowler played in all 16 games for New York, recording 38 tackles, a forced fumble and three interceptions. With Darrelle Revis no longer leading the Jets’ secondary, Cromartie failed to live up to expectations.

“I just had a bad year,” the Florida State product said on NBC Sports Network’s “Pro Football Talk” last week. “That falls heavily on me and no one else.”

Late last month, Cromartie said that he’d be open to restructuring his contract in order to be back with the organization in 2014. He also said that his desire is to retire as a Jet, and he stood by that notion last week.

“This is where I want to be, this is where I want to retire,” Cromartie said.

Mangold was selected to the Pro Bowl for the fifth time. He started in all 16 games for Gang Green in 2013.
