Apparently 10's the magic number for Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie. At least when we're talking about kids. In a new book about the 2011 New York Jets that's set to be released next week, Cromartie told the author that he had a vasectomy late in the 2011 season. 

"I got snipped," Cromartie told author Nicholas Dowidoff, via the New York Post

Dowidoff's book, 'Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football,' is set to be released on Nov. 19. 

As for Cromartie, despite being a two-time Pro Bowler, he's probably best known for having 10 children with eight different women. Cromartie has so many children, he has trouble remembering all of their names. If you want to see Cromartie try and name each of his children, just watch the clip below from a 2010 episode of HBO's Hard Knocks

Cromartie seems to have settled down now. Not only did he have the vasectomy, but he's been married since 2010 and has two children with his current wife.
