Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don’t make.
There was talk this off-season the Jets might release or trade slot receiver Jamison Crowder, after picking Elijah Moore in the second round of the 2021 draft.
But instead, they brought Crowder back on a restructured contract.
And watching Crowder this summer, it’s pretty apparent the Jets’ brass made the right call keeping him around. He’s had a very good camp, doing exactly what he did his first two seasons with the Jets – running good routes, catching everything in sight, and creating a lot of yards after the catch.
He can be a quarterback’s best friend because of his ability to get quick separation from defensive backs, creating big throwing windows.
He’s also been a great mentor to Moore.
It was clearly a smart move to keep him around.
The Jets’ leading receiver the last two years, Crowder’s an asset to the Jets’ offense, and should help them a great deal this year.
