    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.

    Although he is on the older side of old, this is not good :(

    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:

    when the titan fans thought they had missed out on him, they started pointing out that it was for the best since Crumpler supposedly has bad knees. they'll change their tune fast now!

    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.

    I'd take Winslow over either of those guys. Guy has heart and plays with an intensity that Gates and Gonzalez lack. Great hands in traffic too...loses concentration on a few easy ones but makes up for it with the tough catch when you need it.

    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.

    They are a QB away from having a decent passing attack with this addition.

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

    And....Owen Daniels

    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.
