Cats Sign Former UM Standout Crable

The Tiger-Cats are looking for players along the Defensive Line, and if pedigree counts for anything, they may have found one in Shawn Crable. The Cats announced today they have signed the former University of Michigan Wolverine standout to a contract. Crable was a third-round draft pick of the New England Patriots in 2008, but injuries derailed what should have been a promising NFL career.

Crable was a great player at Michigan, and was a havoc-wreaking Linebacker whose specialty was getting to the Quarterback. From the sounds of it, the Cats brought him in to pass rusher, which bodes well for his chances of sticking with the team. If Crable makes it out of Training Camp, the Cats might have found the answer to their question at Defensive End.

In addition to Crable, the team also signed fellow Defensive Linemen Jada Brown, Ronnell Brown and Brandon Gilbeaux.
