The Washington Redskins brought in Jamison Crowder to do the vital job of a wide receiver for them following their offloading of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson who grew to become too expensive but ineffective and inefficient for the FedExField Landover, Maryland based team.
Coming into the 2018 season, Jamison had a few things integrated into one in his mind; to catch passes from his team’s quarterback, avoid, outrun and of course outmaneuver cornerbacks or safeties (defenders) all possing an obstacle in his pass route. In other to do this, his physique has to be put to maximum use just as much as his experience and style of play will determine how much benefit he will put the ball to. Here, let’s find out all he has got in his body stats, NFL career but of course starting with his bio.

His high school football stats as a junior was 26 catches for 618 yards with 19 total touchdowns, while in his senior year, the lad rushed for 641 yards, had 11 touchdowns, caught 41 passes for 790 yards. For his impressive play in high school, Jamison Crowder was named by NCPreps.com a 2010 first team All-state (1A) choice and 2010 Rocky River Conference Offensive Player of the Year. ESPN.com rated him the No. 65 athlete in the nation just as Rivals.com thought him deserving to be a three-star recruit in their rating.
Begining in the year 2011 through 2014, he played college football for Duke University in Durham, North Carolina where he improved a lot more under coach David Cutcliffe. By his second year (2012), he made it into the team’s starting line up and played all 13 games in the season, he did same in 2014 and ended his high school career with 283 receptions for 3,641 yards and 23 touchdowns.
Jamison Crowder entered the National Football League (NFL) as a fourth-round selection, 105th overall picked by the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft. On May 11, 2015, he signed his first professional contract with the Burgundy and Gold team which would last for four years and was worth $2,825,624 with $545,624 as signing bonus and $545,624 guaranteed. Jamison earns a base salary of $1,907,000 in 2018.
He had his first NFL action on September 13, 2015, against the Miami Dolphins, by the next month, the Monroe, North Carolina born wide receiver caught his career-high 8 passes for 87 yards when he played against the Atlanta Falcons in his first professional game start. In the next month, he recorded another professional career firsts as he had a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints. Jamison Crowder finished his first professional season with 59 receptions for 604 yards and two touchdowns
Coming into his second season with the Redskins, Crowder didn’t disappoint either as he got off on a good start with a touchdown in his first game of the season against the Dallas Cowboys from an eleven-yard reception. On October 30, 2016, he reached another milestone in his career by catching his career-high 9 passes for 107 yards when he played against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In his third season with The Skins, he put in a less than impressive performance as he wrapped off the season with 66 receptions for 789 receiving yards and just three touchdowns.
As his contract nears its expiration, a lot is expected from Jamison Crowder to prove his worth in the team which already have a few potential worthy replacements. But should he live up to expectation or perhaps even surpass what is expected of him, his job with the Washington Redskins could be his to keep despite the team coming into the season with a tight budget.
