Jamison Crowder believes Redskins receivers are best in NFL

With the emergence of Kirk Cousins as a legitimate starting quarterback last season, the Washington Redskins offense posted its best season since 2012. Cousins passed for 4,166 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions as Washington’s offense ranked 11th in the league in passing last year.

Washington added TCU’s Josh Doctson with their first round pick and signed tight end Vernon Davis in free agency to provide additional targets for Cousins in the passing game.

Jamison Crowder set a Redskins’ rookie record last year with 59 catches in 16 games for Washington. In an interview with Nick Ashooh and Tim Murray on ESPN 980, Crowder believes the additions to Washington’s receiver group makes them one of the league’s best.

“Yeah, yeah, we do. We think that, you know, we’re the best in the league,” Crowder said on 980 ESPN, via the Washington Post. “Knowing that we’ve got guys like [DeSean Jackson], Pierre Garcon, like you said, Jordan Reed, he had a great season last year. We even added Vernon Davis at the tight end, but he’s still another weapon that can really help us out in the passing game, and Niles Paul and myself, so we feel like we have a really talented group of receivers.”

“The coaches know that we have a really talented group, we know that we have a really talented group, and I really can’t wait to get out there and show the world how talented we are.”

If Cousins can have a repeat of last year’s performance the Redskins offense certainly has a chance to shine, whether his receivers and the best in the league or not.

  1. Pump the brakes a bit Crowder; the Redskins do have a good mix of young and older receivers, and one of the best pass-catching TEs in football, but they really need to prove themselves before making those types of proclamations. They are, however, the best in the NFC East and I don’t even like the Redskins. Also, if you all noticed, I was really hard on Kirk Cousins the last few months, but I’ve admitably warmed up to him and I think he’s going to be a good one. Hail to the Redskins……I guess.

  2. Best receivers IN THE NFC EAST, maybe! But the Redskins are looking better and better and that Scot guy has them on the right track. No drama, smart signings, team cohesion, what is going on in Washington? I really can’t hate on the Redskins any longer because there is no reason to I suppose. I can hate on the Giants though because my Patriots are better than them and I will never respect Eli Manning.

  3. Meanwhile Dallas gets all the praise…..Predicted to win this division again but I dont see it! Those corners are the worst in football……Dez is good but what about your other recievers????

  4. Dallas has Dez, the Giants have OBJ, two better receivers than any on the Skins. I do believe the Skins probably have the best group of receivers in the NFC East though.

  5. I think the Skins are deeper at WR/TE, they probably have more WRs who are talented, but not the best WRs in the league. They have 6-7 legitimate threats, whereas most teams only have 2-3. You can argue whether 2-3 out weighs 6-7 or vice versa.

    They problem they will face is that there’s only one ball. Its very hard to keep 6-7 guys who are used to being fed the ball 10-15 times a game happy and content. Andre Roberts is a GREAT example of this.

  6. Their receiving depth and talent is very good, but I wouldn’t say they’re the best in the league. In my opinion, the only thing they lack is a do-it-all, number one guy, a la AJ Green or Julio Jones. Which is something only a handful of teams have anyway. Maybe Josh Doctson can be that guy, but it’s way too early to say.
