The Miami Dolphins have finally trimmed some of the fat off their roster, this time in the form of motor mouth Channing Crowder. Crowder came into the league as a steal when his draft stock fell due to a college injury. He quickly became a fan favorite for talking smack, something that Miami Dolphins fans hadn’t had since Bryan Cox ran his mouth.
Over the years, it was the mouth of Crowder that did all the walking as his performance on the field began to wane. He has spent parts of the last three seasons injured and especially late in the season when the team needed to be whole. Crowder was scheduled to make 5 million this year.
While I like Crowder as a person, this move in my opinion was long overdue. It also puts the LB position into the top spot of team needs. I’m sure he will end up playing for Rex Ryan in NY.
