Reports circulated that the Jets will make free-agent WRs Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards higher priorities than CB Antonio Cromartie, as the team would like to maintain the offensive firepower it developed over the course of the 2010 season. That doesn't mean, however, that the team is saying goodbye to Cromartie. Head coach Rex Ryan and fellow CB Darrelle Revis both have said that they'd like to keep the star defender, as his man-to-man defense on the outside is a vital component of the Jets' defense. Cromartie, too, has said he'd like to stay in New York. The way we hear it, GM Mike Tannenbaum is going to let Cromartie test the free-agent market while he works on retaining his receivers, and then hope the corner chooses to re-sign with the team. Cromartie is a bit of a loose cannon, and some teams don't want that kind of player in their locker rooms. The Jets, on the other hand, seem to welcome that type of player, a reason Cromartie fits in so well on the roster. Tannenbaum is hoping the player's familiarity with the team convinces him to stay.
