Six months after Antonio Cromartie was cut from the New York Jets, the NFL player is glorifying God for another opportunity to play professional football after being picked up by the Indianapolis Colts.
“Going into my 11th season and it’s been an amazing start. I have to give thanks to my Lord and Savior,” the 32-year-old cornerback tweeted. “I’ve been blessed two showcase my blessings.”
With a contract that wasn’t guaranteed for 2016, Cromartie was cut from his beloved New York Jets where he spent most of his career, from 2010-2014, before returning last year. After the team released him, the father of 12 still honored God.
“First, I would like to give thanks to my Lord and Savior because everything that I’ve been blessed with is because of you. Thank you again,” Cromartie wrote on Instagram before thanking his fans, the Jets organization and teammates. “I had a lot of fun and I know my first half of the season didn’t go well and I thank you guys for pushing and believing in me while keeping me on the field so I could finish strong. Today is a sad day for me not because of my release but the guys I became really close to in our DB room.”
