Former Gator Crowder Announces Retirement From NFL

Former University of Florida linebacker Channing Crowder has announced he’s retiring from the NFL at the age of 27.

He made his announcement yesterday on a radio station in Miami where he works. Crowder had been released by the Miami Dolphins a couple of weeks ago and he said despite some interest from other teams, he wants to remain in the the South Florida area in part because he and his wife are expecting a baby.

Crowder didn’t totally close the door on returning, saying if a team would allow him not to go through training camp and come in and play right away, he might consider it but he believes that scenario is not likely.
