Antonio Cromartie will be in an awkward situation the first time he has to meet his new teammate Tim Tebow. A day after saying on Twitter that the Jets didn’t need Tebow, his team pulled off a trade for the ex-Broncos quarterback. Cromartie remained steadfast in his belief that the Jets don’t need Tebow. About an hour and a half prior to the trade being made, he tweeted:


Y bring Tebow in when we need to bring in more Weapons for @Mark_Sanchez let’s build the team around him. We already signed to 3 year ext.

Cromartie also said in an earlier message “I have faith in the guys that we have in the locker room right now that I will get it done this year.” Here’s the thing: If the Jets were trading for a player in whom Cromartie believed, he wouldn’t be critical. It’s obvious he thinks very little of Tebow as a quarterback. Sadly, Tebow can point to Week 11 last season because he has scoreboard on the Jets.
