Antonio Cromartie

I Saved My Mom's House

from Foreclosure!

EXCLUSIVE

0616_antonio_cromartie_gettyNY Jets star Antonio Cromartie was able to cut a deal with the Bank of New York and has officially prevented the coin-carriers from snatching up the pad he bought with his mom, TMZ has learned.

As TMZ previously reported, the bank sued the footballer for not coughing up $105,381 in missed mortgage payments and wanted to foreclose on the tiny 864 sq. ft. house he bought back in Nov. '06 -- which his mother co-signed for -- in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida.

But according to new court docs, the bank changed its tune and voluntarily dismissed the case ... which means Cromartie either paid off the debt entirely or worked out a deal to restructure the payments. 

Saving the house wasn't exactly an Everest sized feat ... the Pro Bowler signed a 4-year $32 million contract with the Jets in 2011.

In other Cromartie news -- he still has 10 kids, a slew of baby mamas and 2 more wee ones on the way.

What posters fail to understand is that in the NFL contracts are not guaranteed. He did get a signing bonus, but he can get cut at anytime without compensation. This guy is an idiot though, too many kids, too many baby mammas, too many issues. He will be broke the moment his football career is over. I suggest he start a shell account with some of his earnings and get ready to move out of the US immediately after the NFL.

WEAR A FREAKIN CONDOM!!! It doesn't make you more of a man to father a bunch of kids. Just because you make sperm doesn't mean you have to share it every woman you sleep with.
