Wide receiver Jamison Crowder, a free agent, has chosen to remain on the East Coast.
The New York Giants made the announcement on Thursday that the former Buffalo Bills wide receiver will join the team.
In the offseason, Crowder, 29, signed with Buffalo, but he only appeared in four games. The veteran WR, presently entering his 10th season, experienced a messed up lower leg in the Bills’ Week 4 win over the Ravens. He was placed on injured reserve and did not play the remainder of the season, bringing an end to his time with Buffalo.
Crowder caught six passes for 60 yards last season. Before the start of the previous season, Crowder and Isaiah McKenzie fought for Buffalo’s slot receiver position. Buffalo decided not to bring back McKenzie or Crowder after one season. During Crowder’s time with the Giants, McKenzie moved into a new home in Indianapolis. Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield, two pass catchers, have joined the Bills.
Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Wan’Dale Robinson, and newly signed Parris Campbell round out the full WR group with Crowder. Crowder probably had his best season with the Jets in 2019, when he caught 78 passes for 833 yards and six touchdowns.
According to NFL Research, Crowder would become the fourth player in NFL history to play at least one game for the Bills, Giants, and Jets, joining linebacker Marcus Dowtin, safety Maurice Tyler, and cornerback Roscoe Word.
After making the playoffs last season, New York’s offseason strategy has been to provide Daniel Jones with the right offensive tools. Big Blue made its biggest move by trading for Darren Waller, a Pro Bowl tight end. With Crowder’s signing on Thursday, the Giants bolstered their quarterback with a skilled slot receiver.Topics #Jamison Crowder #New York Giants #wide receiver
