| Will Cromartie go instead of Revis? -- Sun Jan 27 7:30 pm --|
Jets might believe dealing Cromartie makes sense
|Instead of shopping Darrelle Revis, maybe the Jets should put fellow CB Antonio Cromartie on the trading block. There's a small segment of the organization that would rather trade Cromartie than Revis, according to a source.
Cromartie's trade value never will be higher; he's coming off arguably his best year. A Cromartie trade would clear $8.2 million in cap room (only $2.5 million in dead money); a Revis trade would actually cost the Jets cap room ($12 million in dead money, as opposed to his current cap charge of $9 million).

FF Today's Take: Cromartie is due a $2.3 million roster bonus on March 15, so the Jets would have to move quickly. It would take some handiwork from new GM John Idzik, because he'd have to sign Revis to a long-term extension before dealing Cromartie. Either way, given the lack of talent on the Jets' roster, it may be asking too much to have two corners on the roster next season eating up $20 M of cap space.
