Tae Crowder is now an ex-member of the New York Giants. The Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday signed Crowder off the Giants’ practice squad to replace linebacker Marcus Allen, who was placed on IR.
The final pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Crowder was waived by the Giants last week and re-signed to the team’s practice squad after going unclaimed.
Crowder played in 41 games for the Giants over 2+ seasons with 31 starts. He made eight starts for the Giants this season, but saw his role decrease significantly during the second half of the season. After Week 8, Crowder played more than 20 snaps in a game only once. He had three games where he played fewer than 10 snaps, including one where he was not used at all and was inactive Week 15 against the Washington Commanders.
Crowder was one of four seventh-round picks the Giants had in that 2020 draft. Carter Coughlin is the only one remaining on the roster.
