The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are scheduled to visit with Buffalo Bills free agent linebacker Angelo Crowell on Monday, PewterReport.com is reporting.
Crowell, 27, originally entered the NFL in 2003 as a third-round draft pick. He has spent five seasons in Buffalo, starting 42 games over the past three seasons.
The 6-foot-1, 246-pound Crowell has struggled with injuries over the last two seasons, but he still has recorded seven career sacks and five career interceptions.
The Bucs released starting linebackers Derrick Brooks and Cato June along with three other players one day before the free agent signing period began. The team also lost out in a bidding war war with the New Orleans Saints for free agent LB Jonathan Vilma last week.
New Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said the team believes younger players Quincy Black, Geno Hayes and Adam Hayward will compete for starting jobs at the outside linebacker positions this year, but the team is looking to add players to the competition, and Crowell fits that description. The Bucs signed Broncos free agent LB Niko Koutouvides earlier in the week.
