Crowder see nothing wrong with college players selling jerseys

MIAMI -- Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder said Sunday that college players should be able to sell their game jerseys -- something he "hypothetically" did when he played at the University of Florida in 2003 and 2004.

Crowder discussed the subject during the debut of his new two-hour weekly radio show on WQAM-AM in Miami.

"I'll say hypothetically I don't have any more of my Florida jerseys," Crowder said. "There were some Jacksonville businessmen that really hypothetically liked my play."

Crowder expressed support for quarterback Terrelle Pryor in connection with the scandal at Ohio State. Pryor left the program and coach Jim Tressel resigned amid an NCAA investigation into players' trading of signed equipment, championship rings and other memorabilia to a tattoo-parlor owner for cash and discounted tattoos.

The University of Florida declined comment. Crowder's agent, Joel Segal, didn't return calls seeking comment.
