Just read the Jets claimed CB Johnny Patrick off waivers from the Chargers. Looks like they picked him up to add depth. He was a 3rd round pick out of Louisville by the Saints. I will assume he doesn't have a big contract figure but does have some experience.
Not sure if this will have any effect on Cromartie's status. Maybe to show that they have some depth to gain leverage with his possible contract renegotiation (if they approach him to renegotiate).
