Jamison Crowder Restructured Contract Details Revealed
NFL teams across the league have been making moves this offseason to limit cap space hits and make sure that they are financially stable for the 2021 season. The New York Jets are no different as they recently restructured the contract of wide receiver Jamison Crowder.
Jets News: Crowder's Cap Hit Decreases
The main goal for the Jets in this negotiation was to decrease Crowders' cap hit. They were successfully able to get that number down to $6.35 million from its original cost of $11.38 million. Crowder will now earn $5.5 million in 2021 with $4.5 million being fully guaranteed.
Crowder has been with the Jets for the last two seasons and has racked up 1,532 receiving yards on 137 receptions during that span (28 games played). The six-year pro has also scored 26 touchdowns in his career and is averaging a reliable 11.6 yards per reception.
The veteran wideout dealt with some lingering injuries last season, but Crowder heads into training camp this summer with his eyes set on locking down the starting slot receiver role. He will have to fend off rookie second-round pick Elijah Moore, who has looked impressive so far for the Jets.
Crowder's consistency will play a major role on an offense looking to improve from its 2020 scoring average of 15.2 points per game, which ranked dead last in the NFL. The Jets remain long shots to make the playoffs with odds set at +490, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
