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.
