Angelo Delvonne Crowell (born August 16, 1981) is a former American football linebacker. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He played college football at Virginia.

He is the younger brother of former NFL wide receiver Germane Crowell.

College career[edit]

Crowell attended the University of Virginia where he served as co-captain in 2002. Received 1st Team All-ACC honors in 2002. Set a school record for tackles of 144 in 2001, and then broke his own record the following year.

Professional career[edit]

Buffalo Bills[edit]

He served primarily as a reserve linebacker for his first two season, playing only on special teams. In 2005, after Takeo Spikes went down with a season ending tear of the Achilles tendon Crowell took a spot on the starting roster. He went on that season to record 119 tackles, 1 forced fumble, and 2 interceptions in 12 starts.

In the summer of 2006, he was named the starting strong side linebacker by Buffalo head coach Dick Jauron, replacing Jeff Posey. Crowell started every game until suffering a late season injury against the San Diego Chargers.

Crowell underwent arm surgery after tearing his triceps muscle in the final game of the 2007 season.[1]

On September 4, 2008, Crowell was placed on season-ending injured reserve after undergoing knee surgery.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

An unrestricted free agent after the 2008 season, Crowell signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 18, 2009.[2] He was placed on season-ending injured reserve on August 24 after suffering a torn biceps muscle during the preseason. On June 18, 2010, Crowell was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Omaha Nighthawks[edit]

Crowell was signed by the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League on August 23, 2011.[3]
