Crowell to Meet with Buffalo

Bills Wrap Up
Bills free-agent LB Angelo Crowell has scheduled a Monday meeting with his former team to discuss re-joining the only franchise he’s played for in his six NFL seasons, according to a source close to Crowell.

Things might not get to that point, though, as Crowell has entered into preliminary negotiations with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, most likely for a one-year contract.

Crowell visited with the Buccaneers and the Detroit Lions this week. Philadelphia has also expressed interest in Crowell, 27, who is coming off knee surgery that landed him on injured reserve for the entire 2008 season. Crowell has not met with the Eagles.

Crowell’s health is an issue but he is expected to be cleared for full football activity by the time teams start full-team, non-contact workouts after the draft in May or June.

In 2008 Crowell elected to have arthroscopic knee surgery just days before the season opener surprising his coach and teammates. Soon after his decision he was placed on injured reserve. Crowell had a career year in 2007 leading Buffalo in tackles with 126. Tampa Bay’s interest in Crowell seems high after their release of veteran linebacker Derrick Brooks.
