Jamison Crowder agrees to reworked Jets deal on eve of minicamp
June 14, 2021
The Jets have settled a contract concern with one in all their greatest gamers on the eve of minicamp.
Broad receiver Jamison Crowder and the staff have agreed on a renegotiated contract that can hold him on the staff this season, a supply confirmed. The phrases of the renegotiated deal weren’t identified, however the Jets had been attempting to get Crowder to take a pay lower. Crowder, who turns 28 on Thursday, was scheduled to make $10 million this season. He was within the last 12 months of a three-year, $28.5 million contract he signed in 2019.
Crowder has been one of many few brilliant spots for the Jets on offense within the final two years. He has led the staff in receiving in every of these years. Final 12 months he had 59 catches for 699 yards and 6 touchdowns in 12 video games. In 2019, he caught 78 passes for 833 yards and 6 touchdowns in 16 video games.
Crowder didn’t take part within the voluntary OTAs with the Jets as his agent and GM Joe Douglas labored on this renegotiated deal. The Jets have some depth at large receiver after signing Corey Davis and drafting Elijah Moore within the second spherical. That gave them some leverage to get Crowder to transform his deal and take much less.
The Jets start their necessary minicamp on Tuesday and now may have Crowder within the fold, one thing coach Robert Saleh stated was a aim.
“Jamison’s positively acquired a job right here and we’re excited to have him,” Saleh stated two weeks in the past.
