“He has failed to appear in court twice for different traffic tickets and hasn’t paid $799 in traffic-related fines, causing the Department of Motor Vehicles to withhold his driver’s license application.”

“Cromartie has at least seven children with six different women in five states. All children are under 6.”

“He was also disciplined by coach Norv Turner for breaking team rules regarding tweeting from the team premises.”

Antionio Cromartie was traded to the Jets for a  2011 third-round draft choice that could turn into a second-rounder. He comes with baggage but he is 25 years old and led the NFL in interceptions (10) in 2007. He was also named to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro team that year. That season he returned a missed field 109 yards for a touchdown. Darrelle Revis was a Pro Bowler and All-Pro for the Jets last season. This combo can turn out to be one of the best combos in the NFL.

Cromartie replaces Lito Sheppard, who the Jets released because of his roster bonus. Besides his legal troubles he has battled injuries which have affected his play over the past two seasons. He has just 5 interceptions over the past two seasons but has not missed a game. He is 6’2″ and ran a 4.38 at the combine which means he brings great size, speed and athleticism to the Jets.

His other flaws include missing tackles and getting burned for touchdowns. However, he should be re-energized playing alongside Revis and Head Coach Rex Ryan. The former first-round pick is in the final year of a five-year, $12.5 million contract which should motivate him to play on an elite level again.
