After a three-year stint with the New York Jets, Jamison Crowder is ready to find a new city to play in for the 2022 NFL season as a free agent.
Jamison Crowder, a former 4th-round draft pick out of Duke in 2015, has struggled the past two seasons in trying to cement his role in an NFL lineup. Surely not having a legitimate quarterback throwing the ball can hinder your performance as a receiver, however, Crowder just never seemed to be content playing in the Gotham green.
Coming off a year where he faced 71 pass attempts receiving 51 for 447 yards and two touchdowns, Crowder is still expecting a multi-year contract worth upwards of $12 million a season.
Though if he can assure potential suitors that it was a down year and at the fault of game planning, perhaps he can convince them into taking a risk on the 28-year old receiver.
Now set to hit free agency for the second time in his seven-year career, there are still a few contenders in dire need of a fast-twitch, low-profile guy who could cause some damage lining up in the slot.
Without further delay, let’s take a look at the three best landing spots for the slot receiver.
Jamison Crowder landing spot No. 3 – Houston Texans
Though they’re not the shiniest toy in the box, the Houston Texans would be willing and able to dish out the kind of money Jamison Crowder is interested in to come to play football in Texas.
They’ve had their fair share of issues the past year and a half, however, the Texans are turning things around under new leadership after hiring Lovie Smith to be the new head coach and the radiant energy around him is sure to catch the attention of players around the NFL.
Bereft of any quality receivers in the lineup, Jamison Crowder can be “the man” in Houston and be the focal point of the passing game. The biggest drawback from Houston though is Deshaun Watson and his continued legal struggles.
