Colts Release Antonio Cromartie

The Colts announced that they have cut cornerback Antonio Cromartie. The veteran hooked on with Indianapolis in late August but his run with them is already over here in early October. The team also waived inside linebacker Sio Moore.Antonio Cromartie

Indianapolis signed Cromartie in the wake of an injury suffered by Pro Bowler Vontae Davis. However, Cromartie was not able to recapture his old form in four games this season.

Against the Bears, Cromartie suffered an arm injury and it’s not immediately clear how long he may be sidelined with that. Still, Cromartie is immediately eligible for free agency since he is a vested veteran. Any team with interest in Cromartie will check into his arm as well as his troublesome hip injury that has dogged him for a while.

Cromartie, a four-time Pro Bowler, returned to New York last year with the Jets. Pro Football Focus ranked him just 86th out of 111 qualified cornerbacks in 2015.

    Maybe he could return to NYJ, giving them an All-Pro CB tandem? Well, if Revis and him can both get 5 years younger and regain their lost speed…

  2. Sebastian Torres

    Injured himself against the Bears? Wow, did he travel back in time with the injury since the Colts don’t play the Bears until this weekend…

    National Anthem kneeling turd… I wish they would cut Dwayne Allen as well!

    Saints need DB help. Not sure he’s the answer. But they do need help.

    • After watching him play last weekend and spend most of the game getting flagged because he’s too slow now, I wouldn’t say he’s the answer for anyone.

  5. Chiefs

    The Chiefs need someone to stabilize the other side of the field while Peters makes plays on the ball. I don’t know who else is out there, but if we think we could use him, we need to check him out, assuming he isn’t completely shot due to the injuries. The Pittsburgh game made the secondary look softer than Parkay on a hot plate.

  6. Lets see, he takes a knee during the national anthem while in UK bc of social injustice while he had 7 kids in 5 different states. Who is going to mentor these young men when they are going through challenging times? He is creating the social injustice.
