With Crowder’s Contract Done, Saleh Says Team Excited to Have him on Board
The Jets and Jamison Crowder avoided letting their contract squabble get ugly and the receiver has his new deal at a reduced rate that will allow him to become a free agent next season.
The #Jets and WR Jamison Crowder have finalized a renegotiated contract with plans to keep him on the team for the 2021 season, source said. Crowder will be a free agent next offseason at age 28 to get another payday before age 30.

There’s no saying exactly how often or in what way the Jets will deploy Crowder in their new offense that’s likely to be part Green Bay and part San Francisco but we do know that he is now part of what has become a very deep wide group of wide receivers with limitless potential and plenty of elite speed.
Either way, head coach Robert Saleh was asked about Crowder today on the first day of mandatory offseason sessions and said that while he doesn’t get in to the contract side of things, he believes Crowder is “a pro” who has been a productive player and he’s happy to have him in the fold.
When the Jets kick off the season, Crowder and Corey Davis will be the only two proven NFL receivers on the roster.
