New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie always played second fiddle to a man named Darrelle Revis, who rightfully sat on the throne as the NFL’s best cornerback before a nasty injury.
Despite never being the best cornerback on his own team, Cromartie believes he can be the best in the NFL—but he doesn’t care to be.
Cromartie dropped this gem of a quote in which he claims he can be the best the NFL has to offer, but he doesn’t care to as long as the team is winnign (via Brian Costello, New York Post):
“Can I be? Yes. Do I care to be? No,” Cromartie recently told Brian Costello of the New York Post. “If we’re winning and I’m doing the things I need to do, then that’s what it’s really all about.”
We get it. Cromartie is more concerned with his team’s accomplishments over his own. The problem with this is the Jets were miserable last year and project to be again in 2013. Then again, it doesn’t sound as if Cromartie is giving it his all if he is not trying to be the best cornerback in the league.
It’s a strange comment from a man who has proven time and again to not have the most logic in his interviews (or other areas of life for that matter).
Do you think Cromartie has what it takes to be the NFL’s best cornerback?
