Professional career

Advertisements

Buffalo Bills

He served primarily as a reserve linebacker for his first two season, playing only on special teams. In 2005, after Takeo Spikes went down with a season ending tear of the Achilles tendon Crowell took a spot on the starting roster. He went on that season to record 119 tackles, 1 forced fumble, and 2 interceptions in 12 starts.

In the summer of 2006, he was named the starting strong side linebacker by Buffalo head coach Dick Jauron, replacing Jeff Posey. Crowell started every game until suffering a late season injury against the San Diego Chargers.

Crowell underwent arm surgery after tearing his triceps muscle in the final game of the 2007 season.[1]

On September 4, 2008, Crowell was placed on season-ending injured reserve after undergoing knee surgery.

The controversial decision to undergo micro fracture surgery was received by the bills as an insult for their refusal to renegotiate Crowell's contract after his career season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

An unrestricted free agent after the 2008 season, Crowell signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 18, 2009.[2] He was placed on season-ending injured reserve on August 24 after suffering a torn biceps muscle during the preseason.
