The New York Jets are a team that has plenty of interesting storylines to follow as training camp approaches, but one that deserves extra attention is what's going on with wide receiver Jamison Crowder. The soon-to-be 28-year-old skipped voluntary OTAs, as head coach Robert Saleh explained that Crowder and the Jets were "working through" a contract matter. Now, it appears his future with the Jets is truly up in the air.
On Sunday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reported that the Jets do want to keep Crowder, but that they're trying to get him to take "at least" a 50 percent pay cut on his non-guaranteed $10 million salary. Crowder has led the Jets in receiving in both of his two years in New York, and has caught a total of 137 passes for 1,532 yards and 12 touchdowns in 28 games played.
