Cromartie announced his retirement from the NFL on his Instagram account Monday.
Cromartie was released by the Colts after Week 4 of 2016 and hasn't caught on with another team since that time. The 2006 first-round pick had 416 tackles and 31 interceptions in 162 games, most notably picking off 10 passes for the Chargers in 2007 as part of a team that reached the AFC championship game. Cromartie had at least two interceptions and played 15 or more games each season from 2007 to 2014. He'll turn 34 in April.
Cromartie has been released by the Colts, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Cromartie was benched in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, but this is still a surprise. The Colts have regained depth in the secondary with several players returning from injury, but it still seems like they could have used Cromartie in a reserve role.
Cromartie was a full participant in Thursday's practice after missing time during the week due to a ribs injury, Colts' writer Kevin Bowen reports.
It was a shoulder injury that took Cromartie out of the Colts' Week 2 game against the Broncos, but it appears he may have suffered a minor rib injury as well. Regardless of the injury, his full participation likely means he won't be held out of the team's Week 3 tilt against San Diego.
Cromartie is questionable to return to Sunday's contest after injuring his shoulder, Troy Renck of Denver7 reports.
Cromartie has been riddled with injuries as of late, but the shoulder injury that he suffered Sunday remains relatively obscure. Though there is a chance that Cromartie will return to action, Darryl Morris is in line to play during his temporary absence.
Cromartie (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 reports.
With starting cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Patrick Robinson both inactive for Sunday's game, Cromartie, along with Darius Butler, will take on the responsibility of containing the Bronco's talented wide receiving corps.
Cromartie (hamstring) is considered questionable for Week 2's matchup against the Broncos.
Cromartie has been limited throughout the week in practice, but his injury doesn't appear too serious. The Colts' secondary has already been thinned out by injuries, so they desperately need Cromartie to play.
Cromartie (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Cromartie's appearance on the injury report is ill-timed for an Indianapolis secondary already dealing with a slew of injuries. While it's unclear when this setback occurred, as well as how severe it may be, his level of participation during this week's forthcoming practice sessions will shed more light on his status for Week 2.
Cromartie had two tackles in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
He played 61 of 64 snaps but didn't look like the top player of earlier in his career has he gave up several big plays. Still, he'll get plenty of playing time with six other members of the secondary injured.
Cromartie will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Eagles, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports.
Cromartie agreed to terms on a contract with the Colts on Monday, so he likely still needs time to get acclimated with the team's defensive playbook. He'll be held out Saturday and could potentially sit out the team's preseason finale on Sept. 1 as well, although he's not in danger of missing any regular season action.
Cromartie came to terms on a contract with the Colts on Monday, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reports.
Cromartie was released by the Jets in February and is entering his eleventh season in the league. He started 15 games with the Jets last season, but failed to record an interception for the first time since his rookie season. He figures to add depth to the Colts' banged-up defensive backfield.
Cromartie has been released by the Jets.
Cromartie signed a four-year deal with the Jets last year, but in releasing him now, New York reportedly saves $8 million heading into this offseason. The veteran cornerback posted a team-high 16 pass defenses this season, but Cromartie's 29 tackles were his lowest since he was a rookie in 2006. The 31-year-old also failed to intercept a single pass for the first time since his rookie campaign, so it'll be curious to monitor the interest he garners on the free-agent market.
Cromartie finished the season with 29 tackles and zero interceptions.
The 31-year-old was frequently burned by opposing wide receivers while failing to intercept a single pass. Although he'll enter the second year of a four-year contract, there's no guaranteed money remaining in his deal, making him a probable candidate for offseason release.
Cromartie (thigh) is active Sunday against the Texans.
After putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday, Cromartie was expected to play in this game. That said, he's struggled mightily in coverage this season, and will look to turn things around against the Texans. He also has yet to record an interception this season.
Cromartie (quadriceps) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Texans.
It appears as if Cromartie, who missed last week's game due to a thigh injury, will be able to play this week Sunday when the Jets take on the Texans.
Cromartie (thigh) was limited in practice on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old was inactive for last Thursday's loss to the Bills due to a thigh injury. His status for Sunday is still unclear, although practicing, is a positive sign. His availability against the Texans this Sunday will likely be decided on Friday.
Marcus Williams will replace Cromartie (thigh) in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Bills, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
With Cromartie inactive for Thursday's game, the Jets will start Rontez Miles at safety and Marcus Williams at cornerback. Buster Skrine will presumably serve in his usual role as the nickelback, and Darrelle Revis will likely shadow Sammy Watkins.
Cromartie (thigh) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bills, Seth Walder of the NY Daily News reports.
Buster Skrine (shoulder/hand) is active for Thursday's game and will likely start in Cromartie's place, potentially leaving Darrin Walls as the nickelback. It would be a bigger loss if the Jets were facing a team with more than one serious threat at wide receiver.
Cromartie (quad) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Bills.
Assuming Cromartie is inactive Thursday, look for either Marcus Williams or Buster Skrine to start at cornerback against the Bills in his place.
Cromartie recorded four tackles Sunday against the Raiders.
Cromartie was picked on often by Derek Carr and he was burned badly by Andre Holmes for a TD. Although he has posted at least four tackles in three of his last four games, he's yet to intercept a pass this season.
Cromartie registered 3 tackles Sunday against the Redskins.
With DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed missing this game with injuries, the Redskins didn't have many weapons to threaten Cromartie and the Jets secondary. The only TD pass the Jets allowed was scored on Darrelle Revis.
