On one hand I can't stand writing about this kind of thing, on the other people seem to enjoy it so here we go.
Cromartie, fresh off his exchange of quotes with Richard Sherman found himself embroiled in another off-the-field slapping contest today, this time with former Jet Kellen Winslow Jr:
Cromartie is one of the biggest posers i have ever seen and played against. Prolly the last guy I would take down an alley with me. #NFL— Kellen Winslow Jr. (@KellenWinslowJr) June 10, 2015
Worry about yourself cro. Stop talkin. Your not even close to the best. You got bad feet and are scared to jam. #NFL— Kellen Winslow Jr. (@KellenWinslowJr) June 10, 2015
Cromartie did respond with
@KellenWinslowJr you wish you were as good as your dad. Have you been to TARGET lately?— ANTONIO CROMARTIE (@CRO31) June 10, 2015
Obviously this alludes to the arrest of Winslow Jr for allegedly doing a certain something in the parking lot of a Target superstore. It's never nice to be called out, but I really wish Cromartie would take the high road on occasions and not respond to comments like this.
Cromartie is getting paid millions to play in the NFL. Kellen Winslow Jr hasn't played in the NFL since his ill-fated first and last season with the New York Jets where he failed to stay on the field for a majority of reasons.
We don't want players talking to become an off-field distraction, which is what it is quickly becoming.
