NFL Free Agents 2011: Antonio Cromartie Adds Raiders To His List

With the two best cornerbacks now off the board in free agency, Antonio Cromartie appears to have two football teams vying for his services. Jenny Ventras of the Star Ledger reports that the New York Jets clearly want Cromartie back to pair off with Darelle Revis and ensure that the team's pass defense does not weaken too much this season. The Oakland Raiders want a replacement for Nnamdi Asomugha, and Cromartie can be paired up with Stanford Routt to try and keep AFC wide receivers at bay.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that these are the two teams that are most interested in Cromartie, and even though the San Francisco 49ers might also be intrigued, their interest isn't quite as high-profile as the other two teams involved. You'd have to think that if the offers were comparable, Cromartie would go with the Jets, since they offer him the better opportunity currently at winning the Super Bowl than the Raiders. Oakland would probably have to pony up to get him.
