Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Former New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie reached an agreement with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, reports ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Cromartie will team up with Pro Bowl corner Patrick Peterson to solidify the Cardinals secondary.

The move frees up $9.5 million in cap space for the Jets, who would have owed Cromartie a $5 million bonus.

Cromartie has 28 career interceptions, including three for touchdowns. In his four seasons with New York, Cromartie started 63 games while recording 140 tackles, 13 interceptions, 55 passes defended and two forced fumbles.

Cromartie was bothered by a hip-flexor injury the entire 2013 season.
