In New England, the only real memory football fans have of Channing Crowder is his tussle with Matt Light back in 2008. Well, that, and his brilliant Anne Frank/Helen Keller comment from last season. That was a good one.
Well, they may become a whole lot more familiar with the guy, as the Patriots reportedly gave the free-agent linebacker a physical on Thursday. ESPN.com's John Clayton reported the news via Twitter.
"It is too early to tell if they will make him an offer," Clayton wrote Friday morning.
Crowder was cut by the Dolphins last week. He spent six seasons in Miami.
