Should the Broncos pursue Jamison Crowder in free agency?

New, comments

NFL.com thinks Jamison Crowder and the Denver Broncos could be the perfect match in free agency.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Marc Sessler of NFL.com broke down the most fun free agent fit for each team in 2019 and for the Denver Broncos he honed in on Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder.

Denver Broncos: Jamison Crowder, wide receiver

After landing their quarterback in Joe Flacco, the Broncos still have plenty of work to do on offense. The line is a mess and the defense could use corner help, but I’m suggesting a buy-low add at wideout in Crowder, a unique physical talent coming off a campaign sideswiped by injuries. Redskins coach Jay Gruden insists Crowder remains in Washington’s plans, but the lightning-quick pass catcher would fill a need in the slot for Denver.

If Crowder ends up hitting the free agent market, he would be an instant top target for teams needing a slot wide receiver as he was deadly inside. However, with the Broncos looking to pick up the contract option on Emmanuel Sanders it would make this move less likely.

Could Broncos offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello find a way to get Crowder and Sanders both involved in the same offense? I think he could. Crowder is just 26 years old and entering the prime of his career. He could be the perfect guy to bring in with one year remaining on Sanders’ contract.
