  • Chargers look to trade Cromartie

    The Chargers are entertaining the possibility of trading CB Antonio Cromartie this offseason, according to a league source.

    Cromartie, a first-round draft pick by the Chargers in 2006, posted an NFL-high 10 interceptions in 2007, but he has just five since.

    On Wednesday, Cromartie lost a grievance filed by his former agent, Jason Fletcher, in New York, according to a league source. NFL arbitrator Roger Kaplan was appointed to handle the grievance, and he awarded Fletcher at least $32,000 in back fees.

    Cromartie is now represented by Gary Wichard.
    What do you think the chargers will get for him?

      It's going to be tough to get a whole heck of a lot, since this is probably one of the most recent things on everyone's mind when thinking about Cromartie...

      YouTube - Antonio Cromartie WTF are you doing?

      People criticize the Rams for taking Tye Hill instead of this guy, but aside from one great season, he's not done that much in the league either at this point. Perhaps 2006 wasn't a good year to try getting a cornerback...

        I think he is a solid cover corner. Maybe not much of a tackler but he is paid for INT's and coverage not tackles. Either way we wouldn't have much to give up for him. As they want a RB from what I hear. We have enough trouble looking for a 2nd RB.

          Cornerback Cromartie on the trading block?

          The Chargers will put cornerback Antonio Cromartie on the trading block if they acquire Drayton Florence, according to league sources.
          That would complete a remarkable circle for the two players. Cromartie replaced Florence as a starter in 2007.
          After Cromartie made a team-record 10 interceptions in '07, Florence was allowed to leave via free agency. He signed a six-year, $36 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. But he was released last month and notified the Chargers through his agent he would like to return. The sides are talking now.
          Cromartie suffered a serious slide in production in 2008. He suffered a hip injury in the season opener and had just two interceptions. If he is not traded, 2009 is considered a make-or-break year for him with the Chargers.
          Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith would neither confirm nor deny his plans regarding the two cornerbacks.

          Tomlinson: Philip Rivers Has Lost Faith In Chargers

          Tomlinson: Philip Rivers has lost faith in Chargers

          Philip Rivers is at the center of the most fascinating storyline of the offseason. But the Chargers quarterback isn't leaving San Diego yet, and its business as usual around the Chargers for now.

          Rivers was at the start of the offseason training program Monday, NFL Media's Alex Flanagan reported. New Chargers receiver Steve Johnson, for one, said he was looking forward to catching Rivers' passes on Tuesday. But will Johnson still be catching his passes in Week 1?

          One of Rivers' most notable former teammates, NFL Media's LaDainian Tomlinson, doesn't think so.

          "You never want to trade your franchise quarterback. You know that's never the case. However, in this situation, they might have no choice but to do so," Tomlinson said Monday on NFL Network's NFL Total Access. "Because I don't know if Philip (Rivers) wants to be there anymore. I think he has lost confidence in the organization. He's seen a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid. Him not wanting to go to L.A. is very valid."

          Tomlinson points towards a larger divide between the quarterback and the organization than just a potential move up Interstate 5.

          "The parts around him keep on moving. The receiver corps keeps on changing. Eddie Royal is now gone," Tomlinson noted. "We talked about this before with Vincent Jackson leaving years ago. There are so many parts that are leaving. When Philip is looking around in that locker room and he doesn't see anyone that he's familiar with other than Antonio Gates.

          "Now to that point, Antonio Gates next year is a free agent, Eric Weddle is gonna be up. Next year the Chargers have a lot of decisions to make with a lot of key guys. So Philip could be looking at the situation and thinking 'we're not close to winning a championship anytime soon.' "

          That can't be easy for Chargers fans to read. Kevin Acee of the U-T San Diego also wrote last week that it's time to trade Rivers, indicating that Rivers could retire before he played in Los Angeles. Tomlinson's words echo the notion that Rivers wants out.

          Rivers declined to speak to the media on Monday, but the message coming from San Diego is unmistakable.

          I think our offense is doing good so far, that call on the fumble with Hedgecock could have went either way. As for the defense not bad, not good on the their first outing with the Chargers.

          chargers are the best team, BUT...
          by general counsel
          The chargers are the best team in the NFL in my view. They have a solid qb, the best running back in the league, an all pro tight end, a solid o line, a dominant defensive tackle, a steriod pumped pass rushing fool, a prominent ex ram in mamliamamliamula, excellent kicker and punter and TONS of momentum.

          But, and its a HUGE BUT, they also have marty. That is going to cost them BIG TIME at some point down the road. My gut tells me that when the chips are on the line in the playoffs, marty will get a lead and run LT 28 times in a row into the middle of the line, allowing someone to rally on them.

          I figure marty is worth negative 7 points at the minimum in a playoff game.

          ramming speed to all
