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.
Cromartie was released by the Texans on Saturday, Mark Berman of Fox KRIV 26 reports.
Cromartie was with the Texans little more than a week and played exclusively on special teams during his lone game appearance. The 26-year-old spent the preseason with the Seahawks and was previously with the Bills, as he now looks for a new team.
Cromartie most recently was with the Seahawks during the preseason but agreed to an injury settlement with the team after winding up on injured reserve just before the beginning of the regular season. The cornerback likely will serve in a reserve role with the Texans but could make an impact on special teams.
