And for the most part, that's exactly what they got.
Crowder was one of the few former Mike Maccagnan free-agent signings that panned out as the former Washington receiver played out his three-year deal in New York putting together some of the most productive seasons of his career.
Crowder was the Jets' leading receiver in both 2019 and 2020, and at times, the lone bright spot of the offense. His contributions during what were some dark times for the Jets offense should not be overlooked.
That said, the writing has been on the wall for his departure since this past offseason. The Jets and Crowder agreed to a restructured contract to keep him on the roster, but it was clear that was only a temporary solution.
