The Ravens signed Crockett to their practice squad Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Crockett will take the spot of Jeremy Langford, who was moved to injured reserve with an undisclosed issue. The Ravens' depth at running back has already been tested not even a quarter of the way through the season with Danny Woodhead (hamstring) and Kenneth Dixon (knee) on injured reserve and Terrance West (calf) also banged up, so it's not inconceivable for Crockett to receive a promotion to the 53-man roster at some point in 2017. The North Dakota State product has two career NFL appearances to his name, both of which came in 2015 as a member of the Packers.
Crockett joins Oakland after spending his first two years with the Packers. Although the undrafted tailback rushed nine times for 21 yards as a rookie, he spent the entirety of last season on Green Bay's injured/reserve list. The former North Dakota State standout will now hope to latch on with the Raiders by impressing during training camp.
Crockett (shoulder) is an unrestricted free agent after not receiving a free agent tender from the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
Crockett spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to his shoulder injury. He has only nine career rushing attempts and isn't likely to have much of a role with any team in 2017.
