Antonio Cromartie Pays Off Child Support

Because of the contract money the Jets paid him up front, Antonio Cromartie was able to pay off his child support.

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has paid a child-support debt in the range of $25,000-$50,000 to the mother of one of his seven children, according to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Cromartie was due in court next week so a judge could evaluate his financial situation in the wake of past-due child support payments. That court date has been taken off the calendar, according to the report.

There were a lot of good reasons for the Jets to help their new player out. Probably none was more important at least from a business perspective than getting this distraction to go away, and getting Antonio's focus back on football.
