Professional careerEdit

Buffalo BillsEdit

He served primarily as a reserve linebacker for his first two season, playing only on special teams.

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.

Tampa Bay BuccaneersEdit

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. On June 18, 2010, Crowell was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
