Antonio Cromartie was one of the most celebrated cornerbacks in 2007. He was coming off his first (of what many believed was soon-to-be many) Pro Bowl appearances and was a troublesome thorn in Peyton Manning‘s side with four interceptions against him in just one season. Cromartie had eyes on breaking Dick “Night Train” Lane‘s single season record of 14 interceptions. He finished with two and was hampered by a hip injury in 2008.

Now the San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Cromartie could be on the trade block. And for added irony, he could be replaced by Drayton Florence — the guy who Cromartie replaced. Florence signed with the Jaguars last season, but was recently released. The UT is reporting that the two sides are currently talking.

In other news around the web:

  • The Browns haven’t been very active in free agency, but are starting to bring in some players, starting with Titans return specialist Chris Carr, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Browns could be looking to get Josh Cribbs more involved in the offense and ease him out of his special teams role.
  • The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Cedric Benson is interested in joining the Texans as Steve Slaton‘s backup. Benson started 10 games for the Bengals in 2008 and finished with 747 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

St. Louis could be looking to trade veterans Torry Holt and Orlando Pace, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. St. Louis could be looking for some late-round draft picks and might even consider trading them as a package deal. How about San Francisco? If the 49ers can sign Kurt Warner, they could all be reunited with Isaac Bruce. Maybe they got rid of Mike Martz too soon.
