Colts Release Antonio Cromartie Two Days After He Kneels for National Anthem

Indianapolis Colts cornerback Antonio Cromartie took a knee for the national anthem on Sunday. On Tuesday, the Colts released the veteran pass defender.

Cromartie crouched down on a knee and raised a black-power fist for the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” in London. Then he rose to his feet for “God Save the Queen.”

But his play during the game, rather than his antics before it, likely led to his release.

The Colts lost the game to the longtime divisional doormat Jacksonville Jaguars 30-27. Jaguars QB Blake Bortles threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for another score. Cromartie made four tackles at the Wembley Stadium matchup.

“The four-time Pro Bowler struggled throughout and his play with the Colts was summed up by one series during their Week 4 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in London,” ESPN’s Mike Wells writes. “Cromartie was beaten twice and called for two penalties on a drive where the Jaguars managed to get a field goal as the first half came to an end. Cromartie was benched in favor of Rashaan Melvin in the second half.”
