The New York Jets announced Thursday that they’ve released veteran RB Isaiah Crowell.
All indications were that Crowell was going to be released now that the Jets spent big money on Le’Veon Bell, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
Crowell, 26, originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama State back in 2014. He played out his rookie contract and re-signed with the Browns as a restricted free agent.
Crowell departed in free agency last year for a three-year, $12 million contract that included $6 million guaranteed with the Jets.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Crowell will free up $3 million of available cap space while creating $2 million in dead money.
In 2018, Crowell appeared in 13 games for the Jets and rushed for 685 yards on 143 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with 21 receptions for 152 yards receiving and six total touchdowns.
