Crawford didn’t look like himself this year as his hip issue limited him to a part-time role. Initially, the Cowboys planned on having him rest up and return, but they ultimately placed him on IR after a two-game breather on the bench.

Before all of this, Crawford was largely healthy throughout his Cowboys career. He missed only a handful of games between 2012-2018 and last year he started in all 15 of his games and notched a career-high 5.5 sacks.

Crawford, 30, has one more year to go on the five-year extension he inked with the club back in 2015. He’s slated to count for a $9.1MM cap figure in 2020 with a base salary of $8MM.
