08:02 AM ET 04.12 | Antonio Cromartie is in somewhat of a limbo state this offseason. Cromartie just played his fifth NFL season, so he would be unrestricted if free agency reverts back to four years. But he could be restricted if the rules of 2010's uncapped year are applied, a possibility if the NFL Players Association is granted an injunction in its antitrust suit to lift the lockout. Some players have said they would not sign their tenders in that situation, but Cromartie said he hasn't made a decision on that front yet, and would talk to his business partners before moving forward. ... Asked if he was concerned his comments might show cracks in the base of players, formerly organized as a union but now decertified into a trade association, Cromartie reiterated that he is expressing how he feels. "I'm my own union," he said. "We're a trade association, so I'm my own union. I've got to protect myself."
