The NFL Funding Paternity Suits Now, NY Jets “Give” 500 Stacks To Player With 7 Kids

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Baby Mama Drama, News, SMH

Wow. The New York Jets are fronting CB Antonio Cromartie some serious paper to help him straighten out some “paternity issues” he is having before the offseason program starts:

With seven children by six different women in five states and at least five paternity suits in the past two years, new Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie needs cash.

The Jets have stepped up, giving Cromartie $500,000 in up-front money (in the form of a bonus) on the final year of a contract that’ll pay him $1.7 million in 2010. During a conference call with beat reporters on Friday, Cromartie spoke of how he had to clear up his paternity issues before he can report to the start of the offseason program on March 22. He has a court date in California later this month.

Also on Friday, GM Mike Tannenbaum vowed to be supportive of Cromartie and said the player has “some work to do” before he can come East. Cromartie needs the ready cash because NFL players don’t begin collecting their salaries until the first week of the season and it would take a while for Cromartie to come up with that kind of money.

Then again, Cromartie signed a five-year, $12 million contract as a rookie in 2006. Apparently, most, if not all, of that money is gone.

Five paternity suits in the past two years?!?!?! WTF?!?!? Man, this is just some pure ignorance right here. We know most athletes these days have baby mamas here and there, but this is just extreme….the fact that the Jets are supporting this irresponsible craziness is beyond us!

Sidenote: Cromartie is also married to “Candy Girls” video vixen Terricka Cason.

    This brother is apparently allergic to condoms, common sense, and financial stability, because he doesn’t have any of the three. SMH.

    No comment.


    Cuz what I would say would sound racist to black people.

    And I’m black.

    I’ll keep it to myself.

    That’s that ridiculous girl from the E! show Candy Girls….I don’t know why a woman would date a man with 7 children by 6 different mothers……if she didn’t initially know she should have ran away fast once she found out. I don’t even want to comment on him….he is totally irresponsible.

    Geeez that guy betta play harder in his final contracted year, thats some leniency in this NHL investment!!!

  • manster

    Ultimately a woman knows if she can get pregnant, yeah ol’e dude should strap up, however, today there are no mistakes, condoms are giving out like tic tacs. Many of these women are looking for their instant 401K plan for the next 18 years. Put the blame on the female’s just as much, if not more, than the guy!

  • Miss u much MJJ

    I want to know who had two kids with him?
    If he wasn’t paying for the first, why would you have a second?

  • free

    i like that the jets are making this fool step up. if any one of those rats takes him to court and he can’t come up with the money, he goes to jail and the team is out of a player.

    all teams should do this.

  • bored @ work

    2006…$12million deal and in 2010…damn near broke?!? wtf, he needs to get fixed and have some serious financial advisement. it’s so sad to hear about these young black athletes getting these tens or hundreds of millions of dollars and then blowing it away. And I bet not one dime of those millions went to a single charity, church, school or mentor program…FAIL

    @Keep it Real:

    That is so true. Sad, but true.

  • lala

    This is freaking ridiculous. @Gimmieabreak, I agree with you 100 percent. What’s up with men not wrappin it up? Is gettin a condom out, rolling it on, really that difficult? Is it laziness or just pure stupidity? I would really love to know.
