The next stop for cornerback Antonio Cromartie will be with the Indianapolis Colts. The veteran cornerback worked out for the Colts on Monday and the team announced a one-year deal later in the day.
Cromartie, who turned 32 in April, is set to enter his 11th season in the NFL and has been a durable and full-time starter for almost all of it. A first-round pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, Cromartie didn’t take over as a starter until his second season with the San Diego Chargers, but made a Pro Bowl despite starting only half of the team’s games.
Multiple teams were reportedly eyeing Josh Gordon for a trade. It apparently was shot down pretty fast, particularly from head coach Hue Jackson who understands the value of a wide receiver like Gordon.
CLOWNEY COMIN’! Jadeveon Clowney is mauling guys and looks like a No. 1 pick. The Texans’ defensive end is doing some damage out there against the Saints.
SECOND COMING: Don’t get carried away by the Dak Prescott hype train just yet. It has been an amazing start for the Cowboys rookie, but try to remember that it is just a start.
DR. FEELGOOD: Shad Khan is lip syncing to Motley Crue in this NFL commercial.
EAGLES SIGN TULLOCH: Stephen Tulloch, Eagles agree to terms on contract. The Birds have a new linebacker.
PATRIOT CASUALTIES: Dion Lewis needs another knee surgery. The Patriots running back reportedly had a complication from his ACL surgery and needs a follow-up procedure. There’s no timetable for his return. Sebastian Vollmer is headed for the injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. Right guard Shaq Mason has a broken hand.
PRESEASON ACTION: The 49ers and Broncos fumbled 3 times in less than a minute. Mark Sanchez and Mike Davis collectively fumbled three times to end the first half.
