he actually went and started in Tampa for a while after he left us, so he's actually had a 5-year career, which is one more than the average. He seems to have been out of football in 2012 though so probably done now.
I seem to recall it came down to a straight competition between him and Jarvis Moss for the final DE spot. Moss made himself puke in training or a preseason game or something and I think that sealed the deal as they couldn;t decide.
As a 1st round pick Moss had the higher upside at the time, but in hindsight Crowder was a servicable pro and Moss was in fact more deserving of the term 'Bust'...
