The Redskins were expected to lose WR Jamison Crowder in free agency this year, and now we know a possible destination. Ian Rapoport reports that the New York Jets are closing in on a deal with the slot receiver. Crowder was expected to have a healthy market in free agency, and the Jets need targets for 2nd year QB Sam Darnold. Crowder was expected to get $8-10 million per year.

Washington drafted Trey Quinn with the last pick of the draft last year, but he was injured multiple times last season. Crowder has also dealt with injuries recently, but was productive when he was on the field. The Redskins need talent at wide receiver, and will likely look to the draft once or twice this year. They will bring back Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Jehu Chesson, Cam Sims, Darvin Kidsy, and Robert Davis this year. They also only have Case Keenum and Colt McCoy available to throw to them.
