The Buffalo Bills signed veteran wide receiver Jamison Crowder last offseason to a one-year deal. The expectation at the time of the signing was that Crowder would compete for the starting slot receiver job with Isaiah McKenzie to replace Cole Beasley.

Unfortunately, Crowder really didn’t get much of a chance as he was dealing with injuries during training camp that limited his time on the practice field. Meanwhile, McKenzie had a great camp and moved ahead of him on the depth chart.

Crowder would get a chance to contribute though and would be the team’s starting punt returner to begin the year. However, that didn’t last long as he suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

The slot receiver is a position that the Buffalo Bills could address this offseason and it raises the question if they should bring back Crowder.

Jamison Crowder’s Career Overview

Jamison Crowder started in the NFL with Washington after he was selected in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He played four seasons with Washington before going to the New York Jets prior to the 2019 season and spent three seasons with the Jets.

This past season with the Buffalo Bills, Crowder finished with six receptions on 13 targets for 60 receiving yards.

In total, Jamison Crowder played in 100 career games with 415 receptions for 4,667 receiving yards and 28 receiving touchdowns.

Should the Buffalo Bills re-sign wide receiver Jamison Crowder?

Injuries really impacted Jamison Crowder’s first season with the Buffalo Bills and it never seemed like he was able to get comfortable in this offense. He is a sure-handed receiver with a career catch rate of 66% and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Bills bring him back on another one-year deal. However, it shouldn’t be the only move and create an open competition for that spot on the depth chart.
