It has been a busy first day of NFL free agency and the Washington Redskins are a team that continues to be a part of the headlines.
Former Redskins WR Jamison Crowder signed with the New York Jets, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Garafolo reports that the deal was worth three-years, $28.5 million.
Crowder, coming off the final year of his deal with the Redskins, entered free agency today. With Washington he was an electric slot wide receiver that caught over 2,600 yards and 14 touchdowns in four years.
His contract year did not do him any favors in getting a new deal. Last season Crowder only played in nine games with a career-low 388 yards and two touchdowns.
The Jets however are looking for help any way they can get it. With rookie quarterback Sam Darnold in 2018, the Jets were 23rd in offense productivity last season. Their leading WR, Robby Anderson, had only 752 yards and their No. 2 receiver was a tight end.
It will definitely leave a hole in the Redskins wide receiving corps. However, speedy WR Trey Quinn showed promise in his short stint with the Skins. He'll be coming back from an ankle injury in 2019.
Earlier today the Redskins already made a splash in free agency by signing free agent safety Landon Collins to a massive deal.
