Falcons placed DE Jack Crawford on injured reserve with a torn biceps, ending his season.
Crawford had been a part-time player, playing in the neighborhood of 20-40 snaps, but it further thins the Falcons' defensive line depth. Crawford signed a "three-year, $9.9 million" contract last March, but could be sent packing next March. He turned 29 last month. Tue, Oct 3, 2017 02:35:00 PM

Falcons signed DE Jack Crawford, formerly of the Cowboys, to a three-year, $10.3-million contract.

Crawford is a situational pass rusher who has 7.5 sacks over the past two years. He'll be a rotational player for a line still lacking linchpin pass rushers.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports up to five teams have shown interest in free agent DE Jack Crawford, including the Bills, Colts, and Jaguars.

Crawford played 548 snaps on the Cowboys' starved-for-talent defensive line last season, but received really poor marks from Pro Football Focus for his pass rush and run defense, finishing as the site's No. 50 end out of 53 qualifiers. Crawford, 29 this year, shouldn't cost much on a short-term deal.

Cowboys re-signed DE Jack Crawford to a one-year contract.

Crawford, 27, spent last season as a reserve defensive tackle and end for Dallas, tallying four sacks but getting washed out in run defense. The Cowboys will hope Crawford won't have to play as many snaps this season. Edge pass rusher is arguably Dallas' biggest need entering this month's draft.

Free agent DE Jack Crawford will visit the Steelers.

A fifth-round pick of the Raiders in 2012, Crawford recorded six sacks in 22 games with the Cowboys over the last two seasons. The Steelers are likely looking at him as a rotational rusher. Crawford turns 28 in September.

Cowboys placed DE Jack Crawford on injured reserve with a broken thumb, ending his season.

Crawford was slapped with a four-week timetable, but the Cowboys couldn't spare the roster spot. He managed two sacks across 143 rotational snaps.

Cowboys DE Jack Crawford suffered a broken thumb in Week 12 and will miss four weeks.

The backup defensive end has amassed eight tackles and two sacks across 143 defensive snaps this season. Crawford will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

Cowboys signed DE Jack Crawford, formerly of the Raiders.

It's always a bad sign when a player can't make the Raiders' roster, but the Cowboys' defense is actually worse than Oakland's -- and probably by a good margin. Dallas is simply taking a flier here on a 26-year-old defensive end.

Raiders waived DE Jack Crawford.

A three-year starter at Penn State, Crawford was a fifth-round pick in 2012. He had zero sacks in 19 career games with Oakland. Following Crawford's release, only two of Oakland's six picks from the 2012 draft are still on the team.

Raiders signed fifth-round DE Jack Crawford, sixth-round DT Christo Bilukidi, and seventh-round LB Nathan Stupar to four-year contracts.

Born in London, Crawford was a three-year starter at Penn State. On a deep defensive line, he'll likely begin his career as a special teamer. Born in Angola with time in France and Brazil, the raw Bilukidi established a Georgia State record with 10 sacks in two years. Stupar, Crawford's teammate with the Nittany Lions, has a shot at a roster spot in a shallow linebacking corps.
Thu, Jun 7, 2012 03:02:00 PM

Raiders selected Penn State DE Jack Crawford with the No. 158 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A three-year starter for the Nittany Lions, Crawford recorded 40 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and 6.5 sacks as a senior. Although he shows natural strength and explosion at the line of scrimmage, Crawford struggles to win one-on-one battles once engaged and doesn't always identify run versus pass. He'll vie for a roster spot as a rotational lineman in Oakland.
