NFL Injury Report:
Most of the trade talk surrounding the New York Jets had
involved cornerback Darrelle Revis following the news of owner Woody Johnson’s
conversations with general manager candidates. However, a small contingent of the
Jets’ organization would rather see the team trade cornerback Antonio Cromartie
than Revis, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.
There's a small segment of the organization that would
rather trade Cromartie than Revis, according to a source.
Cimini argues that Cromartie’s trade value will never be
higher, as he was forced to step into a No. 1 cornerback roll following Revis’
injury and excelled while in the position.
Beyond the trade value, dealing Cromartie would help the
Jets clear $8.2 million in cap room, with only $2.5 million counting as dead
money. If New York trades Revis is would cost the team cap room; $12 million in
dead money compared to a cap charge of $9 million, according to Cimini.
Cimini believes the Jets would have to move fast and sign
Revis to a contract extension before trading Cromartie, but he does see the
scenario as a potential option for New York.
