Antonio Cromartie questions if Joey Bosa’s mom is ‘running the show’

While No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa continues his holdout with the San Diego Chargers, one former member of the team says it’s time for Bosa to get to camp as soon as possible.

Free agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie joined NFL Network’s "Good Morning Football" on Monday, and he said that Bosa’s holdout has some people wondering who’s really in control of the contract negotiations.

Last week, Cheryl Bosa made a comment on Facebook that linked her son’s situation to Eli Manning’s famous draft-day trade:

Cromartie went on to say that one of the biggest problems Bosa could face by coming to camp late is catching up on the speed of the game on the defensive end. While you can study coverages and plays off of the field, there’s no substitute for getting out there against NFL-caliber players to see how the game is played at the next level.

Cromartie also gave his opinion on the best wide receiver and cornerbacks in the game. On the offensive side of the ball, he’s taking Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown. For cover guys, Cromartie could pick between Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman.
