The Jets released Cromartie on Monday, saving $9.5 million in cap space (TJB, March 9).
Despite how the last three days have gone, we don't expect a reunion between the Jets and Antonio Cromartie. Both sides seem prepared to move on.
While the best four corners (Revis, Verner, Davis and Talib) are off the board, there are still a lot of good players remaining in free agency and some that would best fit the Jets. We expect that the Jets might be active in the second round of corners.
Rodgers-Cromartie is the best of who is left, despite his retirement talk. Former Panther Captain Munnerlyn is a very underrated cornerback that we believe could be a solid plug-and-play option for the Jets. Munnerlyn isn't flashy, but he's not going to get his doors blown off either. Then there's some options like Walter Thurmond, Tarrell Brown or even Brandon Browner. Short term fixes, but they are a trio of players who could come in and bolster the secondary.
