Colts Working Out Veteran CB Antonio Cromartie

Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports that the Colts are bringing in free agent CB Antonio Cromartie for a workout along with some other cornerbacks.

Holder mentions that the injury to Vontae Davis is a major issue for the Colts, which explains why they’re taking a look at some available cornerback options.

Despite finding limited interest as a free agent, Cromartie said that he is confident he’ll catch on with a team at some point.

I think right now, everyone just wants to see the younger guys, the guys they drafted,” Cromartie said. “But you also have to look at it this way — I’m 32 years old, going into my 11th year. My 2015 campaign wasn’t a great campaign and I think if you look at the first 10 games of the 2015 season it wasn’t great at all for me. My last six games were more like me … I think something is going to happen for me soon so I’m looking forward to it.”

Cromartie, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2006. He spent four years in San Diego before he was traded to the Jets. After one year in Arizona, Cromartie later returned to the Jets for the 2015 season.

Cromartie was in the second year of his four-year, $32 million contract that included $7 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that freed up $8 million in available cap space for the Jets.

In 2015, Cromartie appeared in 15 games for the Jets and recorded 29 tackles, a fumble recovery and 12 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 86 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.
