Antonio Cromartie is getting physical with his own team
Wow. Antonio Cromartie just nailed Stephen Hill helmet to helmet at the goal line after a catch. Hill was down grabbing head. Then got up — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 21, 2013
Mangold got into Cromartie's face after the play. Offense not happy with Cromartie's physical play there. Crazy sequence #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 21, 2013Cromartie apparently shouted, "Don't cry! Play ball!" This isn't something new. Cromartie has been stirring it up over the past month, mixing it up with Vidal Hazelton during drills and getting too rough with quarterback Mark Sanchez. Some people out there love it. Count FOXSports.com's Peter Schrager as one of them:
Everyone's freaking out over Antonio Cromartie getting overly physical during practice today. "Dirty hit" on a WR. I like it. Some fire. — P. Schrager (@PSchrags) August 21, 2013Maybe it's good that things are chippy in Jets camp. But save some for the season, Antonio. It doesn't help to beat up your own team, even if the squad probably needs to play with a little bit of an edge. Questions? Comments?
