Antonio Cromartie, the veteran cornerback who became a free agent when the Jets released him in a cost-saving move, is signing with the Cardinals.
Cromartie looks like he could be a great fit in Arizona: With Patrick Peterson as the No. 1 cornerback, opposing quarterbacks will have no choice but to throw in Cromartie’s direction.
Last year the Cardinals had an excellent defense on a team that fell just short of making the playoffs. This is the kind of move that could push the Cardinals over the edge, and make them a threat to the Seahawks and 49ers in the NFC West.
