Free agent and cornerback Antonio Cromartie does not mind that he was cut off by the New York Jets as he shows off his collection of luxurious cars and has given interest in playing for the Carolina Panthers.
Cromartie was interviewed by TMZ Sports at his property in New Jersey and showed his collection of luxurious cars that includes a 2016 Cherry Red Lamborghini ($600,000); a White Bentley ($218,000); a Range Rover ($85,000); a Cadillac Escalade ($78,000) and a Prius ($25,000).
Not mentioning the worth of his elegant property, which will probably keep him warm as he looks for another team for the next season.
Cromartie has expressed interest in playing for the Panthers as he posted on his Twitter account and would want to play on the team’s defense.
Antonio Cromartie signed a 4 year, $32,000,000 contract with the New York Jets, including $7,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $8,000,000. In 2016, Cromartie will earn a base salary of $8,000,000. Cromartie has a cap hit of $8,000,000.

However, as reported by ESPN the Panthers signing Cromartie remains to be seen as they have also expressed interest on free safety Eric Steven Weddle from the San Diego Chargers. Weddle is also coming off as a free agent after he cut ties with the Chargers.
Weddle signed a 5 year, $40,000,000 contract with the San Diego Chargers, including a $13,000,000 signing bonus, $19,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $8,000,000.
Weddle told Peter King that he has three years left in his football career and wanted to end up with a team that has a chance at a Super Bowl shot before he retires.
“I’ve got three to five years left in me. I want to go somewhere I have a chance to win a Super Bowl. Until last year I’ve never been injured. I’ve never had surgery. I don’t drink, I don’t go out. My shoulders, back, legs, hip, they’re all fine. I think I bring a lot to a team,” Weddle said.
