According to ESPN, the New York Jets could part ways with receiver Jamison Crowder to save salary for the 2021 season.
Crowder has a team-high cap charge of $11,375,000 next season, that includes a non guaranteed base salary of $10,000,000.
Jarvis Landry and Tyler Lockett are the only two slot receivers with a higher salary than Crowder.
The 27-year-old is the one of the top slot receivers in the league, and he’s 7th in receptions (91) and 8th in yards (1,095) on plays from the slot in the last two seasons.
ESPN also noted that the Jets could pursue free agents Juju Smith-Schuster or Chris Godwin this offseason.
Crowder battled minor injuries last season, and he posted 59 receptions for 699 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games played.
