Jamison Crowder, WR
The Tennessee Titans let Tajae Sharpe walk in free agency and I think part of that may have been that they thought they would have had more time to negotiate with him.
Between losing Jack Conklin, signing Dennis Kelly, trading Jurrell Casey, giving Ryan Tannehill a new deal, letting Logan Ryan walk, and finally figuring out how to get a new deal done with Derrick Henry, there have been a lot of pivotal moments this offseason.
Sharpe was this team’s WR4 and while I know some people are confident in Kalif Raymond, I wonder if you will have that same confidence if he is asked to play a significant number of snaps in a crucial game.
Last year, Sharpe made significant plays on a regular basis, and from when Tannehill won the starting job until the bye, Sharpe was actually the team’s leader in touchdown receptions.
In my opinion, there isn’t currently anyone on the roster who could do that off of the bench which is why Crowder makes sense for Tennessee.
Now, Crowder is expensive and he is set to make $21.5 million over the next two years, although only $11.5 million of that is guaranteed, but that might not be a problem for the Titans.

The Jets drafted Denzel Mims in the second round this season and they signed Breshad Perriman in the offseason. They have fulfilled their duty of giving Sam Darnold more than one target to throw to, and I am going to guess that Le’Veon Bell will also get more catches than the average RB in the NFL this season.
So it wouldn’t surprise me to try to get away from this contract long term.
If Crowder would take a restructured deal to come to Tennessee (nothing as crazy as the Tannehill deal, but something much cheaper) it makes sense for everyone.
New York gets cap space and a draft pick, Crowder gets a new shot on a different team, and the Titans get a wide receiver that can move inside or outside and who might be able to take for Corey Davis if his asking price gets high this offseason.
