The hissing match between Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and the NFLPA continues.

Cromartie fired back at his critics, who now include Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett. 

Cromartie lashed out at NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, as well as NFL negotiators, in an obscenity-laced screed on Monday, criticizing the two sides' inability to forge a new collective bargaining agreement. After Lewis and Dockett said in interviews at the Pro Bowl that they fully support Smith, Cromartie said he didn't care what they thought. 

"I don't give a who about Ray Lewis or Dockett  talking about what I said," Cromartie wrote on Twitter. "There's 10's of thousand ppl who will lose jobs. They taking our healthcare away and for players that have surgery can't even get rehab once March 3rd gets here."

Meanwhile, other NFL players are expressing support for Smith, using their own Twitter accounts to show solidarity.
