Ex-Dolphin Channing Crowder replaces Steve Goldstein on WQAM

Former

has joined Miami-based radio station WQAM (560-AM) on a full-time basis.

Crowder, 29, replaces Steve Goldstein as Adam Kuperstein's co-host weekdays from 1-3 p.m.

According to WQAM, Goldstein left the station to pursue other opportunities. Goldstein, however, tweeted that he was let go.

Goldstein, the play-by-play announcer of the Florida Panthers, recently began a weekly TV show called "Sports Bang" that airs Saturdays at 11 a.m. on CBS 4 in Miami.

Crowder retired from the

NFL

before the 2011 season after getting released by the Dolphins.

Crowder, the Dolphins' third-round pick out of the University of Florida in 2005, is the son of former Dolphins defensive lineman Randy Crowder.

During his six seasons with the Dolphins, Crowder tallied 469 tackles (343 solo), but he only produced 2.5 sacks and one interception.

Crowder, known for his trash-talking on the field, is best remembered by

New England Patriots

fans for getting into a fight with former left tackle Matt Light during a game in 2008, one that led to a memorable hair-pulling incident, shouting match and ejection.
