The Patriots gave former Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder a physical Thursday according to John Clayton of ESPN. Crowder was released by the Dolphins in a salary cap move, and he could give the LB core a lift.
“It is too early to tell if they will make him an offer,” Clayton wrote Friday morning.
Crowder of course is well known for his fight with Matt Light back in 2008. Feelings will likely go away if he puts on a Pats helmet and gives the defense a boost in 2011. He spent the last six seasons with the Dolphins, coming in as a third-round pick of the Dolphins in 2005, has played in 82 regular-season games with 74 starts.
