The Jets have a pile of cap room, and a clear need for offensive skill position talent.
And when they sign their inevitable next running back, one’s going to be heading the other direction.
As part of the three-year deal Crowell signed last offseason, $2 million is guaranteed if he’s on the roster the third day of the league year.
Crowell wasn’t bad last year, averaging 4.8 yards per carry before a foot injury sent him to injured reserve. He had a 219-yard game against the Broncos, and only one other 100-yard game all year. But the greater issues of their offense made it hard to blame any individual for a lack of production.
