Deal for Antonio Cromartie Now "Highly Unlikely"

It looks like the talk about the Lions trading for Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie was all for nothing, because Tom Kowalski is reporting that Detroit has decided to "move in a different direction."

According to a league source with knowledge of the situation, it's "highly unlikely'' the Detroit Lions will trade for San Diego Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie. The two teams did have talks concerning a deal but the Lions have opted to move in a different direction.

Kowalski cited Cromartie's lack of physicality as a possible reason why the Lions decided to move on.  I'm sure what compensation the Chargers would have received for Cromartie probably played a part in the deal not going anywhere as well.  We all know that the Lions greatly value their draft picks, and quite honestly I can't see them wanting to part with anything too high for someone like Cromartie, who only has a year left on his contract anyways.
