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.
