Pats take a look at Channing Crowder

Linebacker Channing Crowder, unceremoniously dumped by the Dolphins last week, could be moving closer toward joining a new team.

John Clayton of ESPN reports that the Pats gave Crowder a physical on Thursday.

No offer has been made, and it’s not clear whether an offer is in the offing.

At a minimum, it’s just another example of AFC East teams sifting through each other’s trash in search of that wad of cash that accidentally was thrown away.

    Ugh. I’d rather they sign Shawn Ellis.

    Uh…no, thank you.

  4. flagstaffphotos says: Aug 5, 2011 10:03 AM

    Anyone else smell that whiff of desperation coming out of Foxboro?

  5. solidmarine says: Aug 5, 2011 10:03 AM

    Ugh.

  6. dcryan82 says: Aug 5, 2011 10:05 AM

    Hahaha… As a phin fan.. PLEASE sign him. I hope he starts week 1.

    who aren’t they looking at

  9. mrtampa says: Aug 5, 2011 10:07 AM

    I’m not sure Mr. Light would approve this transaction!

  10. conwayjames says: Aug 5, 2011 10:10 AM

    Desperation? They didn’t sign him. They workout everyone.

  11. pats1995 says: Aug 5, 2011 10:10 AM

    I think they get Roth by Wednesday

    Pure smokescreen.

  14. august1969 says: Aug 5, 2011 10:12 AM

    After Ocho and Haynesworth, I joked that they should sign this guy since they are blatantly the new Raiders.

    That picture is the Definition of a Channing Crowder.

    A decent backup

  19. rexryansdirtysock says: Aug 5, 2011 10:28 AM

    A “whiff of desperation” by working out a player at a position that the team is fully stocked at (Mayo, Spikes, Guyton, Fletcher) coming off of a 14-2 season and not even offering that player a contract?

    Man, oh, man. That team is dessssperrrrate.

  20. honeybadger14 says: Aug 5, 2011 10:28 AM

    BB: “Wow looking great out there Crowder – why those damn fins treat you like that after everything you’ve given them is beyond me”
    CC: “Not sure coach you think I get a contract?”
    BB: “Sure Sure we’ll get to that – maybe dinner tonight?…listen any chance you got an extra copy of the playbook”
    CC: “nah had to return it…”
    BB: “errr…about dinner – think we’ve seen everything we need to see” thanks for coming in.

  21. flagstaffphotos says: Aug 5, 2011 10:48 AM

    Clearly, losing twice to Rex last year has Belichick reaching for straws. Ochocinco? Haynesworth? Roth? Crowder? Are you kidding? I’ve heard of digging through the trash, but this is more like sleeping in the dumpster.

  22. thetooloftools says: Aug 5, 2011 11:01 AM

    This is a scrape at the bottom of the barrel.

  23. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:05 AM

    Clearly flagstaffphotos is jealous because the Pats have clown stomped his team time after time.

    It’s fun to watch…

  24. ny82jy says: Aug 5, 2011 11:05 AM

    In a little while theres gonna be a article saying the following. Report: Pats bring in Cotchery for a workout. Im waiting for it as we all know they love to go after jets players once they are done with them.

  25. ny82jy says: Aug 5, 2011 11:08 AM

    Man first fat Albert and now maybe this piece of trash. They would go great together and we all know Belichik can make winners out of everyone right. If the Jets went for these two id love to see the comments but if its the Pats its ok and all good. Amazing, keep collecting scraps.

  26. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:14 AM

    Yeah… How many former jets players have the pats brought in? And now, how many former pats have the jets brought in?

    The jets have done it probably three times more, but nice try.

    I don’t recall the part of the article where it says they signed him.

  28. flagstaffphotos says: Aug 5, 2011 11:27 AM

    @ossipee. 28-21?

  29. descendency says: Aug 5, 2011 11:38 AM

    Is the bench too cold?

  30. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:43 AM

    I mean think about it, the jets have four division championships in their entire existence… The patriots won 8 from 2001-2010.

  31. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:45 AM

    poor jealous jets fans.

  32. wtf__seriously says: Aug 5, 2011 11:45 AM

    At this rate, the Pats would be calling my mom in for a workout and physical if BB knew where she lived. And hell no, I’m not telling!

    And… very creative, honeybadger14, thanks for the laugh, but if they wanted to just grab a Dolphins playbook they wouldn’t have gone through the whole hassle of a physical?

  33. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:50 AM

    Lol… since the AFL began, the Patriots have won the Conference Championship 2 more times than the Jets have won the AFC/AFL East championship.

    And yet 28-21 is supposed to bother me?

  34. ampats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:57 AM

    Ahh 28-21 the mantra of the Jets fans since they can’t say Super Bowl or AFC Champion since most of them were not alive the last time Joe Willie drank his way to an AFL/NFL Championship.

    Happy upcoming 43rd!

  35. patsfiend says: Aug 5, 2011 12:45 PM

    Bad PFT comment mojo… stay away Bill. Stay away. Pic here probably taken in 4th quarter of a Pats beat-down of Fins.

  36. digirootune says: Aug 5, 2011 12:50 PM

    Ok, we all know this guy got called ‘Clam Chowder’ a few times growing up. Hell..probably more than a few. Although I’m sure with him going to NEW ENGLAND, those insults are a thing of the past…

  37. cornersss says: Aug 5, 2011 1:52 PM

    “Pure smokescreen.”

    Smokescreen for what?I don’t see how he could be used to hide anything you were doing.”Omg! channing….crowder…oh”

  38. cornersss says: Aug 5, 2011 1:57 PM

    “I mean think about it, the jets have four division championships in their entire existence… The patriots won 8 from 2001-2010.”

    I know right. Had the pats not finally gotten it in the 2000’s we would still be making fun of them. Before the 2000’s i think they had 4 division championships. In fact , from 1960 till 1995 they only won the division 3 times.One per decade.

    So, of all the teams to know what its like to suck for a very long time before ever becoming a constant winner, the pats fans should know, Take their advice!

  39. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 2:20 PM

    And by winning those four, they had more than the jets did over that same time span…

    Admit it, the jets have been more of a laughingstock than the patriots ever were.

  40. skylark70455 says: Aug 5, 2011 4:40 PM

    ossipeepats says: “And by winning those four”

    Winning???

    Riiiiiight… like Memorex had nothing to do with it. lol

  41. bozosforall says: Aug 5, 2011 4:49 PM

    Somewhere, Haynesworth said “Somebody say ‘Clam Chowder’ “?

    Since the Super Bowl era began, the Steelers have won twice as many Super Bowls, yet you Pats fans continue to think that losing a few playoff games to the Pats is supposed to bother Pittsburgh fans? LMAO

  44. bcgreg says: Aug 5, 2011 5:37 PM

    Matt Light and Channing Crowder could finish their fight in camp!

  45. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 5:50 PM

    A) that’s just moronic Pats fans…

    B) this had nothing to do with the Steelers

    This article had nothing to do with the Jets either, but that didn’t stop you from bringing them up, idiot.

    Sucks that you can’t take the fact that the Steelers OWN your team where it matters MOST.

  47. ossipeepats says: Aug 5, 2011 11:04 PM

    Actually, idiot, it was a Jets fan that first brought up the Jets…

    But, you know, make up stuff if it makes your argument sound better.

  48. phinphan99 says: Aug 5, 2011 11:38 PM

    for the record…. the division titles for current afc east teams are

    jets – LMAO 3

    bills – 9

    pats – 10 (7 in 00’s not 8)

    and last but not least

    dolphins – 16

    since the afl and nfl merged in 66

    also like to point out that the jets won b2b div titles in 68&69 but then went all the way to 98 as bottom dwellers, ant still haven’t won any since 98

  49. bcgreg says: Aug 6, 2011 8:27 AM

    @ phinphan99

    The NFL and AFL merged in 1970 not 1966.

    And, the Jets won the division in 2002 on a tie breaker with the Dolphins.

    I’m no Jets fan, but get your facts straight before anyone lends any credence to your rantings.

  50. ossipeepats says: Aug 6, 2011 10:13 AM

    Actually, it was a tie breaker with both the patriots and the dolphins… Technically the phins ended up in third.

  51. rahavort says: Aug 6, 2011 10:29 AM

    Anyone remember that game where Crowder and Light started throwing punches? Let’s see what happens if the Pats do pick him up..

    Steelers 6, Pats 3*

    No need to make ANYTHING up. The Steelers OWN your team where it matters MOST…Super Bowl wins.
