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.
Cromartie (undisclosed) agreed to an injury settlement Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Cromartie is now removed from injured reserve and instantly eligible to sign with any team other than the Seahawks.
Cromartie (undisclosed) was placed on IR Saturday.
The designation means that Cromartie won't play this regular season. With Cromartie out, look for Tedric Thompson and Delano Hill to benefit on the field.
Cromartie spent the past three seasons in San Francisco but was never able to stay healthy for an entire 16-game slate across three years with the team. His best season came in 2015 when he logged 12 tackles and two passes defended in eight games. He spent a brief period of time with the Bills earlier in the offseason but will now wrestle for a depth position within the Seahawks' secondary in advance of Week 1.
