Although it is still a rumor-like message on a reporter’s Twitter page, it just sounds likely that the San Diego Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie will soon put on the Detroit Lions jersey.
The Chargers have a lot of tough monetary decisions to make before the 2010 season. Releasing running back LaDainian Tomlinson was just the first step. And it’s already no surprise that the Chargers decided not to offer tender to No. 2 running back Darren Sproles. So it may shock us even less if the Chargers really decide to send Cromartie to Lions for some good draft pick.
Without Cromartie, the Chargers still have Antoine Cason to do the starting job well. Getting rid of all those causing financial concerns, the Chargers will feel better while making their effort to bring back offensive tackle Marcus McNeil, wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd and outside linebacker Shawne Merriman.
