Apparently 10 was enough for Antonio Cromartie.
After fathering 10 children with eight different women, Cromartie decided in 2011 that enough was enough, opting to get a vasectomy, according to a new book by author Nicholas Dawidoff. In the book entitled Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football, Dawidoff reveals that the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback opted for the surgery ahead of the 2011 season.
“Walk-throughs the day before the game were uninteresting to most players, but not to Cromartie, who could never spend enough time on a football field. Cro had recently submitted to a vasectomy,” Dawidoff writes. “‘I got snipped,’ as he told [Dawidoff]. [Former Jets safety] Eric Smith surveyed the jubilant, excised cornerback and said fondly, ‘I wish it had calmed him down!’”
After all his escapades, Cromartie finally settled down and married Terricka Cason in 2010. He has two children with her.
