After losing out on Nnamdi Asomugha, Jets choose to bring back Antonio Cromartie

Passed over in the bidding for cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the New York Jets went back to a familiar face to fill the spot.

Early this morning, Antonio Cromartie and the Jets reached agreement on a deal that reportedly spans four years and is worth $32 million, according to ESPN New York. After Asomugha opted to go to Philadelphia rather than create a dream cornerback duo with Darrelle Revis, the Jets chose to reunite their 2010 Cromartie-Revis tandem 2010.
