There are no off days for NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen, as the man is doing whatever he can to improve this roster leading up to the 2023 campaign. Adding pass-catchers for quarterback Daniel Jones has obviously been a focus, and Schoen has added yet another speedster for the wide receivers room.

According to insider Josina Anderson, the Giants have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran wideout Jamison Crowder.

Crowder is a player that Big Blue supporters are quite familiar with, as he used to torch the Giants for some big games back when he suited up for Washington early on in his career. Now, though, Crowder will hope to make NY fans happy instead of haunting their dreams.

Crowder spent the first four years of his career with Washington before making a move to suit up for the New York Jets. After three years with Gang Green, Crowder then joined the Bills ahead of the 2022 campaign. Unfortunately, the 5-9, 175-pounder was only able to play in four games before suffering a broken ankle in early October.

Now, though, Crowder is back to full health and ready to make a splash in ’23. The newest Giant has battled injuries over the past three campaigns, as he hasn’t been able to play a full season since 2019.

That year for the Jets, Crowder played in 16 games, making 12 starts, catching 78 balls for 833 yards and six touchdowns. The 29-year-old Crowder is a low-risk move for the Giants, as he’s not going to break the bank, but he can also be a reliable option for Jones this fall.

Crowder, joins Parris Campbell and Darren Waller as the new options for the aerial attack. With a WR potentially coming in the first round of the NFL Draft as well, the NYG offense is really going to be looking different moving forward.
