NEW ORLEANS -- They may be about to break up the Jets' defense, but Antonio Cromartie's concerns are more about the team's offense.

"A lot of people look at our offense, they're not intimidated by our offense," Cromartie said at the NFL Experience Saturday. "We need some guys on the outside that can be game-changers . . . It's going to help having Santonio [Holmes] back, but I think we also need a true No. 2 guy also ready to go."

Cromartie used to be the team's No. 2 guy in the secondary, playing opposite Darrelle Revis. In 2012, though, Revis missed most of the season with a torn ACL and Cromartie became the team's top cornerback. He even made the Pro Bowl for the second time in his career.

He has heard the reports that the Jets are considering trading Revis. Predictably, he is against that idea, but he's not getting too upset about it yet.

"Right now it's just talk," Cromartie said. "I know I would love to have him back just because I don't want to mess up the tandem that we have . . . I would like to try to get LaRon Landry back, also. We need somebody on the back end that can cause fear for the receivers and tight ends when they're coming across the middle. I think us playing together for the next couple years would be great if that can happen."
