Linebacker Channing Crowder Retires From NFL After Miami Dolphins Release
Linebacker Channing Crowder announced his retirement from the National Football League, less than two weeks after being cut by the Miami Dolphins.
Crowder, speaking on WQAM Radio in Miami, said he decided to retire to focus on his family rather than try to catch on with another team.
“I’m hanging it up,” said Crowder, 27. “I woke up, saw my pregnant wife, and all the teams that talked to me way up north, the Northeast, and I said I don’t want to do it.”
Crowder, who made 344 tackles in six seasons with the Dolphins, tried out with the New England Patriots and said he had some interest from the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles. He was cut by the Dolphins on July 29.
