Cromartie signed a contract with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes on Thursday.
Cromartie most recently got a shot with the Lions last preseason, but he landed on injured reserve in September and was waived shortly after. This will mark his first stint in the CFL, and if he performs well, the Wisconsin product could parlay the opportunity into another chance in the NFL.
Cromartie and the Lions came to terms on an injury settlement Tuesday.
Cromartie was set to spend his season on the sidelines before reaching a deal with Lions to be released off injured reserve. He will now be able to find a new landing spot once his health is up to par.
Cromartie has played sparingly over the last four years, making just 21 tackles and three pass breakups in 22 games. He'll sit out the 2018 season unless he reaches an injury settlement with Detroit.
Cromartie was last seen in the NFL with the Texans in 2017, when he was released in October. His signing comes after fellow safety Stefan McClure was waived/injured on Sunday, and now Cromartie will look to fight for a spot on Detroit's final roster.
