Cromartie Responds to Irsay & Those Who Say They Care But Don’t Help Veterans Ever

Free-agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie took a huge risk when he decided to kneel in London before the Jaguars game—after being told not to do so the week before. The veteran CB was signed strictly because the Colts had a multitude of injuries and were in need of his services, but his kneeling combined with him being terrible on the field made it easy for the Colts to release him, which they did.

Just a few days ago, Cromartie’s wife had this to say on Instagram:

“You are Nothing More than an Entertainer. Just Shut and do what we say. You have No rights as along as you are working for me.. there are other places for you to fight and stand for what you believe,” the post said.

The post added: “One things for sure I know my husband was told Not to take a Knee and he went with his heart and he took one. And that cost him his Job.. and Clearly this Statement backs that up… Just a Paid To put on a show.”

On Friday, Cromartie took to Instagram to speak up as well and took shots at the people who say he’s disrespecting Vets, but they do nothing to help them at the same time.

“They say it’s not the right place or venue to do what is right and stand for what is right,” Antonio wrote Friday on Instagram beside an image of Martin Luther King Jr. “I guarantee that most of the people that’s sending me hate messages don’t even know the top 2 members that are leading in this country in homelessness. Well let me educate you. #1 Veterans #2 Children. But you guys care so much about the people that fought for this country. It’s crazy while I was Indiana I had a chance to talk to some veterans that didn’t have a problem with me taking a knee. Because they understood my reason behind it. I thank them my grandfather and my friends for their support who also served this country.”

 

They say it’s not the right place or venue to do what is right and stand for what is right. I guarantee that most of the people that’s sending me hate messages don’t even know the top 2 members that are leading in this country in homelessness. Well let me educate you. #1 Veterans #2 Children. But you guys care so much about the people that fought for this country. It’s crazy while I was Indiana I had a chance to talk to some veterans that didn’t have a problem with me taking a knee. Because they understood my reason behind it. I thank them my grandfather and my friends for their support who also served this country. Some of y’all I have to sit back and pray for, Because right now with everything that’s going on in this country and with these two idiots making the presidential debate a reality show and a joke and it’s sad. I pray that we make a change for the better. It starts by being honest with yourself, also by not being blind with what’s going on in our communities and our country. I’ve played this game for 11 years and I am grateful for the opportunity the lord and the @chargers gave me back in 2006. #BeAboutChange #teamcromartie
