Antonio Cromartie, Derrick Alexander and Randy Starks will serve as coaching interns for the Jets during training camp as part of the NFL's Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship program.
Cromartie, who lined up at cornerback for the Green & White from 2010-13 and in 2015, will work with the linebackers at camp. Selected No. 19 overall by the San Diego Chargers in the 2006 Draft, Cromartie played 11 NFL seasons with four different clubs. The four-time Pro Bowler had 31 interceptions and 116 pass defenses, totaling 13 picks and 63 PDs with New York's AFC representative. After not playing in 2017, Cromartie announced his retirement in March.
Alexander, who lined up with four teams from 1994-2002, will assist wide receivers coach Karl Dorrell. The Michigan product, a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 1994, had 417 receptions, 6,971 receiving yards and 40 touchdowns over 126 career games. Alexander's most prolific campaign came in 2000 when he set the Kansas City Chiefs' single-season record with 1,391 receiving yards.
Over the course of 12 NFL seasons and with three clubs, Starks had 413 tackles, 42 sacks and four interceptions. A University of Maryland alum, Starks was a third-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2004. He earned a pair of Pro Bowl selections in 2010 and 2012 while a member of the Miami Dolphins. Starks will stay in the trenches with the Jets, helping out Robert Nunn and defensive line assistant La'Roi Glover.
