Once Le'Veon Bell was signed, this move was inevitable:
We have released RB Isaiah Crowell.— New York Jets (@nyjets) March 14, 2019
Half of Crowell's $4 million salary for 2019 was due to become guaranteed tomorrow. For now, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon are penciled in as Bell's back-ups, but we'll see if the Jets look to add any more depth.
By making this move, the Jets will wipe $3 million off their cap commitments for 2019.
