Antonio Cromartie, a three-time pro bowler, spent the past four seasons with the Jets.
Florham Park, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) -
The New York Jets released cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Sunday.
Cromartie battled a hip injury in 2013, while picking up 38 tackles, three interceptions and a forced fumble. He called it one of the worst seasons of his career.
"Cro is one of the finest athletes I've ever coached," said head coach Rex Ryan. "He was willing to contribute wherever the team needed him to win games, be it defense, special teams or offense. He has a passion and enthusiasm for the game and I wish him and his family the best."
The move will save the Jets $9.5 million in salary cap space.
