Free–agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie may be forced to retire due to lingering hip issues, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
The 32-year-old started 15 games for the New York Jets last season, but has yet to sign with a new team as training camps are set to open.
Cromartie is a four-time Pro Bowler, last earning the honor with the Arizona Cardinals in 2014.
He signed a four-year deal with the Jets in 2015, but was cut by the team in February.
Cromartie didn’t record an interception with the Jets last season, the first time that has happened since his rookie year in 2006. He has tallied 364 tackles and 31 interceptions in 158 career games.
