Free-agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie has agreed to sign with the New York Jets, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The contract is worth $32 million over four years, ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini reports.
Cromartie would be reunited in New York with former Jets teammate Darrelle Revis and Todd Bowles, his defensive coordinator last season with the Arizona Cardinals and now the Jets’ head coach. Revis agreed to sign with the Jets on Tuesday.
Cromartie played for the Jets from 2010 to ’13 and was a Pro Bowl selection in his final two years with the team. In 2010 and ’11, the two seasons during Cromartie’s tenure where Revis was healthy, the Jets defense ranked No. 3 and No. 4 in yards allowed per play.
The Jets allowed the third-most passing touchdowns in the NFL last season and were tied for the fewest interceptions with only six. They also signed cornerback Buster Skrine to a four-year deal earlier this week.
Cromartie had three interceptions in 2014 for the Cardinals and was selected to his third consecutive Pro Bowl.
