It's not quite like putting Nnamdi Asomugha opposite Darrelle Revis, but if Cromartie even comes close to meeting his potential, this definitely helps the Jets avoid regression to the mean on defense. Apparently, the deal is for either a third-round pick or second-round pick depending on how well Cromartie plays this year. I'm bummed that rumored Detroit deal didn't work out -- they needed a cornerback badly.
The Lions did end up acquiring Corey Williams in a trade with the Browns, though, which should add depth up front.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
