In a Superbowl radio interview today, former Dolphin LB Channing Crowder said that he plans to return to playing in the NFL. Just don’t expect him to come back to Miami.
The 28 year old sat out last season but feels fully healed and ready to play. He is quoted as saying….
“I wouldn’t go on a team with [Dolphins G.M.] Jeff Ireland,” said Crowder. “I’m not very confident in him. He doesn’t know what he’s doing in my opinion. He’s real disrespectful. He doesn’t know how to deal with people.”

Turner was the OL coach for Mike Sherman at Texas A&M. Last year, Texas A&M’s offensive line gave up just 8 sacks all season, the lowest in Division 1A college football.
