I understand where ur coming from! When Gay was trucked by AP....I didn't like that one bit!!!! But look for a 3rd rounder I believe that he was a really good bargain to.the jets for only a 3rd rounder!!!! But again he did have a big ass contract and that's probably why a lot of teams didn't jump on it! Honeslty.do.u really think the Jets passing D isn't upgraded with the addition of Cromartie?....I know he's a big ass liability in the running game....ill give u that n that's why the chargers practically gave his ass away for a 3rd round pick!

You're absolutely right! I think they will take a CB in the 1st or 2nd round....If haden falls(which mostlikely won't happen) then draft him but if they go after Wilson then they should trade down n get some extra picks! But I would perfer them to draft CB Chris Cook out of Virginia in the 2nd round.....what do u think???

Crowmartie will become the FS or #3 CB for the Jets. As a FS he will not have to support run game, but rather patrol center field and let Jim Leonard support the run. The Jets just got younger and faster in the secondary as opposed to Kerry Rhodes.

I think the highest compensatory pick is a 3rd rounder not a second if thats what you mean!.....

Its not a comp pick...comp picks are picks awarded to teams by the NFL when a team loses a player via free agency based on their playing time/etc with their new team..comp picks cannot be traded either. SD would not get ANY comp picks for Cro based on he was not a FA that signed elsewhere.

The Jets traded their ACTUAL 2011 3rd round pick...which depending on Cro's performance can turn into a 2nd rounder. For example...things like starting all 16 reg season games...having so many tackles or INT's...etc (these are not exacts of the deal..just examples)...can turn it into the Chargers getting the Jets 2nd round pick in 2011 and not their 3rd. A lot of teams do these type of trades...where they are willing to give up either said pick...but if the player dont perform as they'd like they dont have to give up the higher pick.

Heres a quote from NFL.com also..

"NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reported the trade, and the Jets later confirmed the deal to The Associated Press but didn't release specifics. According to La Canfora, the Chargers will receive at least a third-round selection in 2011, and it could become a second-round pick, depending on Cromartie's performance."


Hope that clears it up.

I was not talking about the kids. I was talking about Cromartie himself at least he can afford to care for all those kids.

Cromartie would be a horrible fit for us. Our corners don't have to be the biggest playmakers, when was the last time we had one, but they have to be willing and good tacklers. That's what allows us to give the cushion that we do.

Cromartie is an idiot literally. He will take forever to pick up that defense and isn't a team player. I can't wait to see Rex Ryan lay into him over his antics.
