Cromartie announced his retirement from the NFL on his Instagram account Monday.
Cromartie was released by the Colts after Week 4 of 2016 and hasn't caught on with another team since that time. The 2006 first-round pick had 416 tackles and 31 interceptions in 162 games, most notably picking off 10 passes for the Chargers in 2007 as part of a team that reached the AFC championship game. Cromartie had at least two interceptions and played 15 or more games each season from 2007 to 2014. He'll turn 34 in April.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
No stranger to the Jets secondary, Cromartie returns to the team after one year in Arizona where he accumulated 49 tackles, 10 passes defensed, three interceptions, and one defensive touchdown in 16 games. He'll be reunited with Darrelle Revis, and along with newcomer Buster Skrine from Cleveland, the team has a solid trio leading the cornerback unit in 2015.
Working opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson, Cromartie forms perhaps the steadiest duo of cornerbacks in the league. Since bursting onto the scene with 10 interceptions during his sophomore campaign in San Diego, Cromartie has averaged three picks per season, while missing just one game in his eight-year career. His ability to play through discomfort can be counted upon, making him a reliable defensive back in IDP formats.
Cromartie will start as the team's top cornerback. He notched three interceptions in 2012 with one going for a touchdown.
Cromartie will again play opposite Darrell Revis--together they provide a good cover duo in the secondary. Cromartie’s strength is his consistent ability to take the ball out of the air and run with it. Last season he recorded four interceptions for 105 yards total, and deflected 12 passes.
Cromartie re-upped with the Jets this offseason on a 4-year $32 million contract. Cromartie is a decent IDP option due to the amount of looks he gets with Darrelle Revis on the other side of the field. Cromartie is a playmaker with the football and is always liable to return an interception for a touchdown.
Teams aren't going to challenge Darrelle Revis on the other flank very often, so Cromartie might be a good IDP speculation play this year if interceptions are particularly important to your group. A nice gambit by the Jets.
Cromartie burst on to the scene in 2007 with a dazzling display of athleticism that lead to 10 interceptions and a Prow Bowl berth. But 2008 saw him regress mightily, and the Chargers even floated the idea of trading him in the offseason. Despite that fact, look for a huge bounce back in 2009. Cromartie makes most of his plays as a result of his jaw-dropping athleticism, and he was robbed of much of that last year due to a hip injury that he suffered early in the year. If the hip is healthy, he should be able to react much more decisively and will be able to better utilize his size and leaping ability.
Cromartie claimed a starting role in Week 10, picked off Colts quarterback Peyton Manning three times and never looked back. At the end of the year, he found himself leading the entire NFL in interceptions with 10. Cromartie benefits from the presence of fellow interception threat Clinton Hart (five picks in 2007) in the Chargers' secondary, but Cromartie's not going to surprise anyone in 2008, and opposing teams should look his way less frequently. Cromartie is not a great tackler despite his good size (6-3, 210), so avoid the temptation to draft him too early.
Cromartie should challenge for a starting spot at cornerback in his second season as a pro. The former first-round draft pick has the prototypical size and speed to be a shut-down corner if given the opportunity, but he worked mainly as a nickel back in 2006.
Cromartie is a bit of a wild card for the Chargers this year. He hasn't played a down since his sophomore season at Florida State because he blew out a knee in 2004. He is battling for a starting corner spot, but should see lots of action even if he does not crack the opening day lineup. His size and athleticism should add some much needed playmaking potential to the San Diego secondary.
