[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs will entertain another potential first-round cornerback next week in Florida State’s Antonio Cromartie, who missed all of last season because of a knee injury. Cromartie joins South Carolina’s Johnathan Joseph and Fresno State’s Richard Marshall as likely first-round cornerbacks who will meet with the Chiefs next week in Kansas City.
Cromartie is big and fast, but his knee injury makes him something of a gamble, at least as a first-round choice. The status of his knee is something the Chiefs will undoubtedly have their medical team examine next week.
His agent, Jason Fletcher, said Cromartie is ready to play.
“He’s probably 90 percent at this point, and he will be 100 percent by the time the season starts,” Fletcher said. “He’s been cleared by every doctor he”s seen. He’ll be good to go for the minicamps and all of those things.”
