Redskins Coach Jay Gruden Says WR Jamison Crowder Could Play in a Variety of Roles

Redskins coach Jay Gruden gushed about slot receiver Jamison Crowder, saying “he’s an excellent, dynamic player and continues to prove every day why we like him so much,” Mark Bullock of the Washington Post reports.

“I’ve said all along Jamison can play anywhere,” Gruden said. “He can play outside, inside. He can play running back probably if he wanted to. So we’ll utilize Jamison and try to get him more involved, not just in the passing game and the running game.”

“He just continues to prove every day why we like him so much. He’s great on option routes, he can run vertical stems. He can run just about anything you ask him to run. … He gets himself open because he’s got a great feel. He’s got quickness in and out of his breaks. He plays a lot longer than his size. He has got really long arms. He goes up and gets balls. Sometime he plays bigger than a taller receiver because he uses his height [and] he’s got great jumping ability and times the jumps extremely well. Some tall guys you see, they misjudge it and they don’t jump. But Jamison, he times them perfect and makes big plays.”
