Bucs Sign Linebacker Angelo Crowell

March 18th, 2009

New Bucs linebacker Angelo Crowell sat out all of last season with a knee injury.

The guy is young but experienced, big but banged up.

Linebacker Angelo Crowell was an interesting Bucs signing today, and one that surely can’t hurt given how linebackers Quincy Black, Adam Hayward and Geno Hayes have less experience combined than, well, frankly anybody the Bucs might have signed in free agency.

Crowell also is 27, under the magic 30 number that seems to be a prerequisite set by Raheem The Dream.

In a recent story, the Buffalo News reported Crowell can play weak- and strong-side linebacker.

His Bucs salary is a one-year $3.5 million deal, says the St. Pete Times.

Now the catch is Crowell missed all of last season with a knee injury. Nothing like that to give fans confidence.

Right now Joe is counting on Crowell about as much as he expects Cadillac Williams to contribute in 2009.

Let’s see what he looks like in August.
