Antonio Cromartie I Saved My Mom's House from Foreclosure!

NY 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.
