Antonio Cromartie Pays How Much a Month in Child Support?

Well, the New York Jets cornerback has eight kids to account for outside his marriage.

Good lord... that's a lot of money.

After learning that he and his wife, Terricka Cromartie, are pregnant with twins despite his vasectomy procedure, Antonio Cromartie will have 12 kids to support in total.

But because eight of those children were fathered by the New York Jets cornerback outside his marriage stemming from relationships with seven different women, Cromartie pays each about $3,500 in child support for a whopping total of $28,000 per month.

Add that across a calendar year and Cromartie has to cough up $336,000 in child support over 12 months, according to the New York Post. Wow.

Fortunately for him, he signed a four-year, $32 million contract in March 2015 and already collected $7 million this past season. The problem is the rest of his salary is not guaranteed, meaning the Jets could cut him at any time without paying him the remainder, leaving Cromartie in quite the fix.

Cro better stay healthy on the field and keep producing if he wants to see the rest of that dough.
