The New York Jets are planning to sign Washington Redskins free agent wide receiver Jamison Crowder, multiple reports said Monday.

Crowder, a 25-year-old slot receiver, was expected to sign with a new team for a sizable contract thanks to his coveted position. The deal will be worth $28.5 million over three years, including $17 million fully guaranteed. It cannot be finalized until the new league year begins Wednesday.

A high ankle sprain held Crowder to just nine appearances in 2018. A fourth-round pick in 2015, Crowder amassed 2,628 yards on 221 catches and 14 touchdowns in his fourth year in Washington.

In his best season, 2016, he caught 67 passes for 847 yards and seven scores, plus notched a punt return touchdown.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said Crowder was the Jets‘ biggest target at the slot position. The Jets entered the offseason with among the most cap space in the league.

Without Crowder, Washington will enter the new season with Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn as their top receivers — unless they add a free agent or a rookie in the draft.
