NEW YORK (AP) _ The New York Jets have released cornerback Antonio Cromartie, a decision that saves the team millions of dollars under its salary cap.

Cromartie was entering the final year of his four-year deal and was scheduled to cost the Jets’ cap $14.98 million this season _ including a $5 million roster bonus that would kick in later this month. There’s a chance the Jets could bring back Cromartie at a lesser salary, unless the two-time Pro Bowl selection chooses to explore free agency.

The 29-year-old Cromartie is coming off perhaps his worst season as he struggled with a hip ailment for most of the year while continuing to play as the Jets’ No. 1 cornerback.
