FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Antonio Cromartie might have been right, after all.
When Darrelle Revis when down for the season with a knee injury a few weeks ago, the New York Jets cornerback said he was the best cornerback in the NFL. Cromartie has lived up to his bold declaration, stepping up in Revis' place and shutting down the likes of Houston's Andre Johnson, San Francisco's Michael Crabtree and Miami's Brian Hartline.
Rex Ryan says Thursday that Cromartie has more athletic ability than any player he has seen at the cornerback position, putting him in the same category as Deion Sanders.
Cromartie made headlines during training camp when he said he was the Jets' second-best wide receiver, and nearly had his first catch against Houston on Monday night.
