Antonio Cromartie to the Arizona Cardinals

There will be no reunion between Antonio Cromartie and the New York Jets as the cornerback inked a one-year contract to join the Arizona Cardinals, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Cromartie, 30, bolsters an already strong Cardinals' secondary that features three-time Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson and Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate Tyrann Mathieu. Cromartie will look to bounce back from a sub-par 2013 season, where he battled a hip injury all season. Despite the nagging injury, he started all 16 games for the Jets and recorded 35 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 10 passes defended. A Peterson/Cromartie duo is definitely one of the best in the league.     

Cromartie reportedly had interest in a return to the Jets, but the feelings surprisingly weren't mutual. With youngsters Dee Milliner and Darrin Walls projected as the Jets' starting cornerbacks, one would assume the team would like to bring back Cromartie, who is a proven commodity and a veteran presence. But the lack of interest is a telling sign that the Jets are still concerned about his hip and they don't think he can still play at a high level.  

In four seasons with the Jets, Cromartie complied 140 tackles along with 13 interceptions and 52 passes defended.
