LB Angelo Crowell had a pretty good run from 2005-07, accumulating a combined 330 tackles, seven sacks and five interceptions for the Bills. But the past two years have been filled with injuries, including a torn biceps muscle in the second Buccaneers preseason game that cost him the 2009 season.
His attempt to come back this year ended today. By signing rookie Dekoda Watson to a four-year contract, Tampa Bay has released Crowell.
As the St. Petersburg Times’ Stephen Holder points out, the Bucs must not have been impressed with the progress Crowell has made to return from his injuries. It’s unclear how much interest he’d draw from other teams, especially since he hasn’t played since 2007.
