The New York Jets have finalized a renegotiated deal with Jamison Crowder amid reports the team was asking the wide receiver to take a 50 percent pay cut, NFL Network reported Monday.

Terms were not reported.

Crowder was scheduled to make $10 million this season but it non-guaranteed. Crowder signed a three-year, $28 million deal with the Jets in March 2019.

Crowder did not report to organized team activities because of contract negotiations.

Crowder caught a team-leading 59 passes for 699 yards and six touchdowns in 2020, playing in 12 games (seven starts). In 2019, he played all 16 games (12 starts), putting up 833 receiving yards and six touchdowns, again leading the team in receptions with 78.

However, the Jets beefed up the receivers’ room during the offseason, signing Corey Davis (three years, $37.5 million) and Keelan Cole (one year, $5 million) and drafting Elijah Moore with the 34th overall selection.

Crowder, a fourth-round pick by Washington in 2015, turns 28 on June 17.
