Antonio Cromartie was a first round pick to the San Diego Chargers in 2006, and at one point was on the verge of becoming one of the best defensive backs in the league.

He had 10 interceptions in 2007, and made the AFC Pro Bowl team.

However, that was the high point of his career.  After lackluster seasons in 2008 and 2009, he was traded to the New York Jets.

Unfortunately for Cromartie, his reputation as a “hound” precedes his abilities on the field.  He has seven kids with six mothers in five different states.

This makes for great material for Hard Knocks.  On last night’s episode, Cromartie is speaking about how he has to separate the tenaciousness and intensity on the field from his family.  When he goes home, he just wants to be a good husband and father to his children.

Watch how much effort it takes for him to list them off:

Now that’s fine television right there.

It’s probably easier for him to pick up the Jets’ defense than it is to send out birthday cards.

  1. P O S.

    Wrap it up man. Having kids with six differant woman doesnt make you cool or more of a man. Is he planning on being in these kids lives? I doubt it. Hell, he dont even know all their names.

    Just another example of an athlete who doesnt get it.. although im sure he didnt have a dad growing up so its just par for the course.
