“Cro is one of the finest athletes I’ve ever coached,” head coach Rex Ryan said in a statement, via NewYorkJets.com. “He was willing to contribute wherever the team needed him to win games, be it defense, special teams or offense. He has a passion and enthusiasm for the game and I wish him and his family the best.”

Cromartie said good-bye to Jets fans on Twitter.

The 29 year old Cromartie should have a good amount of football left in him.
