Antonio Cromartie

I Saved My Mom's House

from Foreclosure!

6/20/2012 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Another deadbeat PRO AFFFLETE almost leaves his momma homeless making her sweat over foreclosure payments he blew on bling and hos and crackrocks I'd bet anything. They should have a reality show called "Dead or Broke or BOFF?" with all the African American 'afffletes' who've collectively blown through about a trillion or two dollars since Kurt Flood and free agency sent sports into the nuthouse stratosphere. Even Obama barely can blow through that much of other people's money....

Someone teach that man how to use a condom (carry his own too), it will save him millions. The foreclosure shouldn't have reached that point, he could have just paid cash for the house at any point.

Yet another reminder that just because someone can play a sport doesn't mean they have brain.

Multiple baby mamas better save for a rainy day, because 1 bad season and this idiot could be broke as a joke. Of course, maybe that's what those women get for using their wombs as ATMs,

That guy is fvcked up on several levels [1] he buys a house-that looks like it's in the swamp-for his mother--or did he expect her to make payments-[2] too cheap [typical] to just pay it off, allows the payments to accumulate w/late fees to $105,381, even I can to pay that off. [3] and check this out: he sired ten children with eight women living in six states. The chick he married had a baby last April 2010 and another one earlier this year and expecting twins in November 2012, I don't know what her baby factory strategy is but you can believe money figures prominently... and you know this black mandigo can't keep his peter in his pants so there's the imminent divorce down the road [guess that's where the babies come in to play] foreclosure on the house, antics on the field, fired, bankruptcy... we've all seen the drill.
