Free agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who played last season for the Arizona Cardinals, has reportedly pared down his list of possible 2015 teams to three. The Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys are the three teams vying for his services, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

The price tag will be much more than the $3.5 million he made on his one-year deal with Arizona a season ago. Cimini believes Cromartie is seeking at least $6 million per season, which is what the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly paying free agent cornerback Cary Williams.

Cromartie himself said he is the missing piece Dallas needs to win a championship.

The Jets have long been a supposed destination for him. He played for the Jets before, he has a home out there and even his teammates say all he does is talk about New York. Plus, the Jets' head coach is now Todd Bowles, who was his defensive coordinator in Arizona.

Arizona would like to retain him as well. Pairing him with Patrick Peterson makes for a very talented pair of starting cornerbacks.

He is expected to make a decision Tuesday night.
