Patriots Sign Alge Crumpler

The Patriots signed veteran TE Alge Crumpler today, making him the lone tight end on the roster. After a great career with the Atlanta Falcons and some disappointing seasons with the Tennessee Titans, Crumpler is mainly seen as a blocker. On occasion though, he can still catch a pass or three.

Crumpler has always been described as a hard-working guy that brings leadership qualities to any team that he has worked with. Just what the Patriots need.

Crumpler fills the vacancy left by the departure of six-year veteran Ben Watson and Chris Baker.

    Crumpler is a 3rd OT that can catch the ball when needed. Great pickup.

    Alge Crumpler would be a great signing… 3 years ago! Not so much now. However, apparently his receiving speed has dropped off a bit – but that is of no concern… what really matters is his blocking – which I read he was still excellent at. So the signing makes sense in that regard.

    A lot of great TE’s are drafted in the later rounds. Witten was a 4th round pick for instance. We need to hit on one at some point.
