According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie says that head coach Rex Ryan plans on using him as a wide receiver this season.

“They’re trying to make up a ‘Cro Package,'”said Cromartie. “So I’ll see what goes in there.”

“I believe I can do it,” he went on. “You got to pick your spots. You got to figure out what routes I can run, what routes I can’t run. That’s what we’re going to do.”

The Jets are clearly desperate for a spark on offense.  The only legit receiver they currently have is Santonio Holmes.  Aside from him, they don’t have any threats that can help quarterback Mark Sanchez.
