New Orleans also placed LB Chase Hansen on injured reserve.
Crawley, 27, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado in 2016. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason and returned to New Orleans on an exclusive rights contract.
Crawley was waived by the Saints a few months ago and later claimed by the Dolphins. Miami waived him with an injury designation last year and he was later waived from injured reserve.
Crawley signed a futures contract with the Raiders this past January but was released coming out of training camp. From there, he had a brief stint with the Cardinals before signing on the Saints’ practice squad in recent weeks.
In 2019, Crawley appeared in five games for the Saints and Dolphins and recorded six tackles and no interceptions.
