Thanks to some of the big additions for the NY Giants this offseason, it's easy to forget about a handful of the under-the-radar moves made by Joe Schoen. One guy in particular definitely has to be veteran wide receiver Jamison Crowder.
Crowder and the Giants came to terms on a new deal in late March. Big Blue fans know all about Crowder, as he has been known for lighting up the NY secondary in the past. When he was signed, it wasn't seen as a blockbuster deal by any means.
However, let's not sleep on Crowder here. He's looked sharp at OTAs and is building chemistry with Daniel Jones. During the session on Monday, Crowder caught a TD from Jones, while adding two more from Tyrod Taylor. We love seeing this.
Giants WR Jamison Crowder is looking strong at OTAs in East Rutherford
We're not expecting Crowder to be a superstar for this team, and he may not even make the 53-man roster, but he could prove to be a great veteran presence for this team if he makes it to Week 1. Crowder is entering the ninth year of his NFL career, spending his first four seasons with Washington, the following three with the Jets and 2022 with the Bills.
Crowder broke his ankle in October, limiting him to just four games in '22. He's looking close to 100 percent in East Rutherford these days, which is helping him make noise at OTAs. Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka must love what they've seen out of the 5-9, 175-pounder.
While a lot of the attention is going to Parris Campbell, Isaiah Hodgins, Jalin Hyatt, Darren Waller, Darius Slayton and others, we can't forget about the impact Crowder is having for the pass-catchers. If he keeps this up, then we very well could see Crowder make a difference for this team once the regular season rolls around.
