At bet365, we don’t do ordinary.
And neither does Washington Commanders wide receiver Jamison Crowder.
A nine-year NFL veteran, Crowder began his career in Washington back in 2015 and spent four seasons in burgundy and gold before spells with the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills between 2019 and 2022.
Crowder began his second stint with the Commanders this September and has already made his mark in the 2023 season.
The 30-year-old was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his 61-yard punt return in Washington’s 24-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.
Last week vs. the Eagles, Crowder hauled in seven catches for 95 yards and a touchdown, despite having played just nine offensive snaps all season prior to Week 8.
It’s the latest highlight of Crowder’s near-decade long career that has seen him become one of the league’s most consistent punt returners and slot receivers. The veteran has compiled more than 4,700 receiving yards, 935 punt return yards and 30 total touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2015.
“My faith, my belief system,” Crowder said. “My folks always put that into me.”
“When I stay on that path, a lot of things always work out. And some things I can’t even really explain, it always just kind of falls in line.”
On the football field, Crowder enjoyed good health and consistency during four seasons with Washington from 2015-19. He then missed nine games across three seasons with the Jets, before a devastating injury cut his first season with the Bills short.
Crowder suffered a broken ankle while returning a punt in his fourth game with Buffalo, leaving him out indefinitely. It would be the last time he would suit up in the 2022 season.
He then signed with the New York Giants in March 2023 and spent training camp with the NFC East team, but did not make it through the final 53-man roster cuts.
After signing to the Commanders’ practice squad in early September, Crowder was elevated to the active roster prior to Week 1, and has been with the team ever since.
“Even when you hit hard times, and you’re like, ‘man, I don’t know how I’ll get out of this,’” Crowder said. “It always works out, some way, somehow.”
