Default Titan's new TE

http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

POSTED 7:08 p.m. EST, March 2, 2008

ALGE IS A TITAN

On Friday, there were reports that free-agent tight end Alge Crumpler was poised to sign with the Seahawks.

It didn't happen.

Instead, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Crumpler has joined the Titans, a team flush with cap space and in desperate need of a boost to the passing game.

Crumpler became a Pro Bowler in Atlanta while playing with a run-oriented quarterback who often found Crumpler open while scrambling out of the pocket.

So, basically, Crumpler could be a Pro Bowler again in Tennessee.

I disagree, its still just a tight end, and frankly an overweight one at that. if the titans want to give Young some help, just sign Moss....then there would be no room for excuses. :music:

Not a bad pick up for them. Their new/old OC has used the TE effectively before. I don't think he is a game breaker but still not bad. He had more TDs than Daniels did last season. However OD had a better YPC and more yards. He is 30 but how he plays could depend on how he decides to work out.

He does have bad knees.... but he's not that old, this will be his 8th season. Everytime we have played him he seems to not want to go across the middle too often. We'll see how it works out though.

Also, Alge hasn't signed with anyone and his agent is saying the rumor that he agreed to terms is false.

So he went from playing with a QB that cant throw, runs first, and makes bad decisions to another QB that cant throw, runs first, and makes bad decisions.

It really seems just more appropriate than anything else. Now all thats left is to somehow get Vince interested in Pit Bulls.

CRUMPLER'S AGENT DENIES REPORT OF TITANIC DEAL

In response to a report that tight end Alge Crumpler has agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans, Crumpler's agent denied that a deal is done.

''Where did you see that report?" agent James Williams told TitansRadio.com. "We talked on Sunday, lets put it that way. He has not signed a contract nor agreed to anything.''
Per PFT.

I would definitely take Winslow over Gonzo, but Gates?--no way. What Winslow did this last year finally started to look like what Gates has done for the past 5 years. Plus, Gates' character so far appears higher--and I am making no reference in that to the soldier comment which I found the controversy on to be totally absurd.

Doesn't Winslow also have issues with his knee that he injured in that motorcycle accident? Gates is by far the better TE.

Hey, he was #3 in the AFC in total yards. If we could utilize him in the redzone and get his TD total up, he could definetly be in the running for the PB.

A late push by the Tennessee Titans was able to give Vince Young a big target, tight end Alge Crumpler, to help him be more efficient at quarterback.

Crumpler agreed to a two-year deal that he plans to sign on Monday in Nashville, according to a source close to the situation.

According to the Nashville Tennessean, the deal will be worth $5 million and includes a $1 million signing bonus.
