The Jets No. 1 receiver said Wednesday that he’s willing to take a pay cut in order to remain with the team for “the next couple of years.”

Santonio Holmes has been so focused on his own production over the years, he hasn’t had time to watch other offensive stars. Literally.

The Jets cornerback was questionable for the game on Friday, a day after he hyperextended his right knee in practice. Hours before kickoff, Cromartie, donning pink cleats for Breast Cancer Awareness month, did some light running and cutting on the field.
