Antonio Cromartie still has speed, runs sub-4.4 40

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The veteran says he ran a sub-4.4 40.

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie is 30 years old. People have said he has lost a step. Speed was one if his great traits coming into the league. Last season he struggled some and suffered from a hip flexor injury much of the year.

He looked healthy in offseason workouts and posted a video on Instagram to show just how well he is doing.

He posted it to spite those who feel he has lost some speed.

Now, he claims he ran a 4.34 and a 4.36. In this particular video, I clocked it at 4.50, but I couldn't tell exactly where his finish line was.

I wasn't the only one to clock it that way. Shaun Church also did, but Cromartie made sure to correct it. He tweeted this:

This should be excellent news to Cardinals fans. Of course, Bruce Arians did bring on a speed coach in Roger Kingdom, so hopefully we can see some improvement in explosiveness across the board from players.

But in the case of Cromartie, who is on a one-year deal, if he can stay healthy and continue to play with that elite speed, that will be great for him and for the Cardinals as a team.
