Is Antonio Cromartie faster than every cornerback who's ran at the NFL Combine for the past two years? The obvious answer seems to be know, but Cromartie posted an Instagram video on Saturday that might suggest otherwise. 

The Cardinals cornerback says he hit 4.34 seconds during a workout. The fastest official time by a corner at the combine this year was Cleveland's Justin Gilbert, who ran a 4.37. The fastest time by a corner in 2012 came from Detroit second-round pick Darius Slay, who ran a 4.36.

The last corner to top 4.34 at the combine was Minnesota's Josh Robinson, who ran a 4.33 in 2012. 

So did  the 30-year-old Cromartie really run a 4.34? You can break out your favorite hand-timer and judge for yourself.

From Cromartie's Instagram:

"And ppl say I've lost a step. Only thing I can do laugh at you all. Ran 4.34 & 4.36 in the 40 today after a workout and I'm only getting faster."

Even if Cromartie can hit 4.34, he's still not the fastest person in Arizona. Just ask teammate Teddy Williams.
