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.
