2. Jamison Crowder

It wasn’t long ago when Jamison Crowder was a top threat in the NFL. This year, however, he hasn’t been utilized much in New York, totaling just 15 catches for 119 yards and a touchdown.

He’s just two years removed from grabbing 78 receptions for 833 yards and six touchdowns. Crowder has appeared in just three games this year and hasn’t started a single game for the Jets. They have other wide receivers who they’ve been leaning on more and that makes Crowder an easy trade candidate for the Jets. He’s also in the final year of his deal and it’s unlikely he returns to Gang Green in 2022.

In New Orleans, Crowder would go from WR3/4 to WR1/2 and would give Winston the weapon he deserves. He’s proven to be a top-tier target throughout his seven-year career (four in Washington, three with the Jets) but it’s hard to do much damage without a good quarterback, which is the problem in New York right now.

Saints fans would love to see Crowder in a black and gold jersey and pairing him with Michael Thomas would be more than enough to give this offense a boost.
