It seems that Jamison Crowder wishes he was playing for a different Jets team.
The New York receiver spoke to the media on Friday while donning a Winnipeg Jets sweater, an obvious play on the team’s shared name.
The former fourth-round draft choice has been one of few bright spots for the Jets this season as they’ve fallen to 0-10. Crowder has made a team-leading 32 receptions for 425 yards and three touchdowns in six games.
It’s possible that Crowder was inspired by the Canadian connections on his team.
Ajax, Ont. native Nathan Shepherd has taken 154 snaps at defensive tackle for Jets this season, making five total tackles and 0.5 sacks. Former Toronto Argonaut Greg Van Roten starts along the offensive line, while longtime CFL player Sergio Castillo recently won the kicking job.
Crowder evidently has a sense of humour, which is appreciated given the state of the world. Now we’ll have to wait and see if any members of Detroit (4-7) show up wearing B.C. Lions gear before the season is out.
