Antonio Cromartie was so excited to get the phone call he was traded to the Jets, he's pretty sure passersby at the Atlanta airport thought he was crazy. Here's the cornerback's summer questionnaire:
What are your plans for the break?
Working out and spending time with my family and my kids. That's the biggest thing for me right now, because when the season starts, that's going to be hard for me to do. I'm going back out to L.A. to spend time with them (He also got married last Friday and tweeted a video of his and wife Terricka's first dance at their wedding).
What are your individual goals for this season?
You know what, I don't have any true personal goals besides playing the way I'm capable of playing and playing within the defense. Those are my biggest goals: Just playing the way I'm supposed to and playing within this defense, and having fun.
When you say "the way you're supposed to," what do you mean? Are there changes you'd like to make from last year?
When I say that, it's just having fun. Going out there and enjoying the game, enjoying my teammates and being out there on the field with them. Last year was last year. It's a new beginning. I don't try to look at anything I did wrong last year, I try to just improve on things that I see from now. That's the biggest thing for me.
What was your reaction when you first found out you would be a Jet?
I was hooting and hollering, to tell you the truth. I was in the airport, and people were looking at me crazy. I was coming back from Atlanta, and my agent called me. He was just like, "I got some good news for you: You're out of San Diego. You're going to be a Jet now." I was excited about that.
