Must of missed this as he was released the 17th.... The former 3rd round pick looked good against the Steelers the other night. It would be nice to add another body at LB/Special teams.
From the Pats Pulpit.....
Today, in a surprising move, the New England Patriots have announced the release of outside linebacker Shawn Crable. The 6-5, 250 pound outside linebacker was a third round pick of the Patriots in 2008. He spent the majority of his first two seasons in the league on injured reserve, before ultimately being released at the start of training camp this July after he couldn't pass his physical.
The Patriots announced Tuesday evening they have released linebacker Shawn Crable. The Michigan product, a third-round pick of New England back in 2008, played in six games in 2010 and registered four total tackles, a half a sack and one special teams tackle. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Crable was inactive for the first eight games of the 2008 season before finishing the year on injured reserve. He spent the entire 2009 season on injured reserve, and was released by the Patriots on July 28 and signed to the practice squad on September 6. He was signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Sept. 25.
Anybody have more info on this guy? What do you think?
