The New York Jets have made some big moves this off-season. On Thursday (March 12), they made a big one when they reunited Darrelle Revis with his former sidekick, Antonio Cromartie.
According to ESPN, Cromartie agreed to a four-year, $32 million contract with the team.
The cornerback tamden come together again after two years apart, last playing from 2010 to 2012.
Just days after returning to the NYJ himself, Revis played recruiter, calling Cromartie on Wednesday (March 11), telling him he wants the “Batman-and-Robin tandem” together again.
Excited, Cromartie took to Twitter on Wednesday, saying he’s “happy to shutdown QB’s with my bro @revis24 again!”

Earlier in the week, Revis returned to the Jets, two years after a bitter departure, signing a five-year, $70 million deal.
On Twitter, he said, “I’m coming home.”
The deal came just five hours after Revis officially became a free agent, when the Patriots declined to exercise a $20 million option for 2015.
His deal will pay him $48 million in the first three years, including $39 million in full guarantees, sources tell ESPN. The first two years are guaranteed — $16 million and $17 million, respectively. In 2017, $6 million of his $17 million salary is guaranteed.
