New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is likely out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL leaving Antonio Cromartie to believe he’s now the No.1 guy in the NFL.
Cromartie told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that he’s now the best cornerback in the entire NFL, better than even Nnamdi Asomugha.
"I have said that I'm the second-best corner in the NFL," Cromartie said. "I'm not backing off what I said. I don't care what anyone else believes ... It's my confidence in myself. I know what I'm capable of when I'm at the top of my game.
"This is Revis' team. He's been a consistent corner every single year. I haven't been."
“My job is not to be like Revis,” Cromartie said. “My job is to be Antonio Cromartie. I’m supposed to be me. And I’m going to continue to be me.”
