Giants' Tae Crowder: Racks up stops as rookie
Crowded notched 57 tackles (34 solo), one sack, one defended pass and one fumble recovery -- which he returned for a touchdown -- across 11 games in 2020.
Crowder joined the Giants as a seventh-round pick last April, but injuries to David Mayo paved his way to a significant defensive role unexpectedly early. The Georgia product's rookie campaign was ultimately a mixed bag, as he demonstrated inexperienced mistakes just as regularly as he flashed playmaking abilities. At the least, though, Crowder has showcased a foundation worth developing. He should be in the mix to compete for a starting role come 2021.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Records eight tackles
Crowder made eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Ravens.
Crowder made his fifth start of the season in Sunday's cross-conference clash. The rookie seventh-round pick has accrued 34 tackles through those five starts and 46 total stops through 10 games.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Notches first career sack
Crowder posted seven tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Seahawks.
In his second game back from IR, Crowder usurped David Mayo for the starting inside linebacker role. The rookie seventh-rounder finished with a modest 54 percent snap share. He did plenty of damage during that time, as he finished second on the team in tackles and took down Russell Wilson for his first career sack. Crowder will look to build on that effort over the final four weeks, potentially operating in a feature role for a contending team.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Back from IR
The Giants activated Crowder (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Crowder was impressive during a three-game stretch prior to his injury, as he piled up 17 tackles, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery. He even started over David Mayo in Week 6. Perhaps Crowder will reclaim the starting inside linebacker role in his first game back from IR, but fantasy managers in IDP formats should wait and see before plugging Crowder into their lineups....

Giants' Tae Crowder: Returns to practice
The Giants designated Crowder (hamstring) for return from injured reserve Wednesday.
Crowder was back at practice Wednesday, and the Giants will now have a 21-day window to evaluate him for return to the active roster. The rookie seventh-round pick has flashed when given the opportunity, but with Blake Martinez and David Mayo both healthy, he'll likely only play a backup role.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Scores game-winning TD
Crowder had 10 tackles (six solo) and returned a fumble for a touchdown during Sunday's 20-19 win over Washington.
The 10 tackles were impressive in and of themselves, but the 23-year-old also recovered a fumble and returned in 43 yards for a touchdown to give the Giants a 20-13 lead with less than four minutes remaining in the game. The return of David Mayo from injured reserve did little to impact Crowder's playing time, as he still logged 85 percent of defensive snaps.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Heads to IR
The Giants placed Crowder (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.
Days after recording a career-high 10 tackles and returned a fumble for a touchdown against Washington, Crowder will be shut down for three weeks due to a hamstring injury. He'll be eligible to return Week 10 versus the Eagles, but he may return to a reserve role if both David Mayo and Blake Martinez stay healthy.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Elevates to full practice
Crowder (hamstring) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Crowder failed to suit up in Monday's game against the Steelers with the hamstring issue but he logged his first full practice session of the season. Now healthy, the rookie seventh-rounder should assume a depth role at linebacker for Sunday's game against Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tae Crowder: Inactive for Week 1
Crowder (hamstring) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Crowder was limited during practice all week but couldn't shake off his hamstring injury. It's unclear what role Crowder will have once he's healthy, but the Giants could have a decent amount of faith in the rookie seventh-rounder since they cut LB Ryan Connelly, who began the 2019 season as a starting linebacker....

Giants' Tae Crowder: Final pick of 2020 draft
The Giants selected Crowder with the last pick of the seventh round in the 2020 NFL Draft, 255th overall.
Crowder's path to this moment is unique. He enrolled at Georgia as a running back but was buried on the depth chart behind a slew of future NFL talent. Crowder transitioned to inside linebacker and became a starter for one of the best defenses in college football. He racked up 62 tackles -- including four tackles for loss -- as a senior. For a player that switched sides of the football, Crowder has a surprising amount of polish and instinct at linebacker. It'll be an uphill battle for him to crack the 53-man roster, but Crowder has a chance.... See More ... See Less
