The New York Jets receiving corps may be a little thin, but recent comments by Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie may be overdoing it a bit.
Cromartie said today on on the cesspool that is "ESPN First Take" that he is the second best receiver on the Jets squad. He said, “I think I’d put myself as second,” he said. “I haven’t really played it in the past four or five years, but I can put myself as the second just with raw ability and talent going out there, I think, me separating and being a more physical guy out there on the outside.”
Cromartie hasn't played receiver since his college days at Florida State, but seems very confident that he can play both sides of the ball, a la Deion Sanders.
The Jets receiving corps outside of Santonio Holmes is pretty thin. The Jets signed former Raider Chaz Schliens to possibly be the number two receiver. Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill are expected to be the three and four recievers in New York.
Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said about the possibility of Cromartie lining up at wide out, that he wouldn't rule anything out.
