Antonio Cromartie angers Jets' receiver Chaz Schilens
|It's one thing for Antonio Cromartie to call himself the second-best wide receiver on the New York Jets. It's another thing for him to specifically explain why he's better than his teammates. One of those teammates, wide receiver Chaz Schilens, didn't appreciate this new era in Jets trash-talking. "Yeah, and it's not something I would say," Schilens said Wednesday, via The Associated Press. "Let him think what he wants." Cromartie says he can run the whole route tree while also pointing out that Jeremy Kerley is "just a slot guy" and rookie Stephen Hill has a lot to learn. Schilens said Wednesday that Cromartie "doesn't get" the position. Perhaps Schilens can teach him a thing or two when Cromartie is moonlighting at his other gig - cornerback. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Cromartie's comments about the Jets' less than spectacular receiving corps probably shouldn't have been made, but there might be some truth to his words. Beyond Santonio Holmes, rookie Stephen Hill is probably the only other Jets' wide receiver worthy of selecting in your fantasy draft, but he can be targeted in the late rounds and is far from a sure thing. Despite possessing tremendous speed and size he is a little raw.
