Buffalo Bills who likely won’t return next season: Jamison Crowder, WR
Again, we come back to the wide receiver position. It’s an area fans know the Bills have to improve. If the Bills come back with Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis and Khalil Shakir as the only receivers who return to the team next year, that would be more than fine. Even cutting ties with Isaiah McKenzie wouldn’t be a horrible move, as he’s also easily replaceable.
Jamison Crowder fits into that category of guys the Bills have to move on from for a few reasons. First of all, he is going to be 30 years old in June. And he may only be 30, but his body might as well be 35.
Crowder hasn’t played a full season in three years. He’s struggled with injuries that keep him out a good chunk of time, and only played in four games during the regular season in 2022. Crowder was once a dynamic slot receiver, but like Beasley, is getting up there in age.
If the Bills want to find a true difference-maker on offense, they should start with finding a threat in the slot. It feels as though they continue to try, but fail, in finding a guy who can be a long-term option here.
At this point, Crowder’s contract is up and he’ll likely be done in Buffalo, paving the way for the Bills to find a legitimate future at the slot position.
