The Washington football team selected Jamison Crowder in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL draft, but the wide receiver might not be around much longer if a new development is proved true.
Mark Armstrong of ABC11 took a screenshot of a post from Crowder’s Instagram account alleging domestic violence, which has since been deleted.

Fox Sports reached out both to the franchise and the NFL. Per Alex Marvez, Washington responded:
“[We] are aware of an off-field situation involving Jamison Crowder. We have been in touch with the NFL office and will continue to follow proper League protocol and assist them in any way we can to gather all of the facts. We will not be making any further comment at this time.”
And from a league statement:
“The team has been in touch with our office and we are looking into the matter.”
The Duke product ended his college days career tied with former teammate Conner Vernon with the most catches (283) in Atlantic Coast Conference history. Crowder racked up 3,641 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns for the Blue Devils, adding 930 kick-return yards.
A shifty 5-foot-8 target, Crowder has been competing to earn a starting role as the slot receiver. Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant are also in contention for the spot.
