    Kinda odd to see the majority of the posters here saying that it's a good signing, but the Falcons fans making cynical comments. ;)

    I'll wait on believing the signing until it's up on the front page of TitansOnline. If we do sign him, and at the price OzTitan listed, I'll be ecstatic. He may not be the best TE anymore, but he's an upgrade over what we have. Plus, he fits our offense and has experience with a mobile QB.

    As for Troupe and Scaife... Scaife is a solid TE, but he's more of a #2 TE and can be upgraded easily. Not to mention, Scaife gives us little in the passing game. As for Troupe, he just never clicked. He struggled to learn the playbook, and he didn't fit our offense. A wide-open offense where Troupe could just be unleashed would be best, as Troupe is one of the most athletic TE's in the league.

          No, that's just reporting what Schefter already said. "agreed to terms"..."expected to sign". It's not "done" but few deals back out from this point on.

          I'd be surprised if SI's contract details are accurate. He must have serious injury concerns if he only gets $1M in guarantees on the open market as the top TE. I mean damn, that's too low by pre-new CBA standards.

            Seriously...they do have the cap room. Just throw the damn bank at Moss and reel him in. VY would love him some Moss.

              I havent seen any retractions yet. Looks like PFT just posted a bad report by Crumpler's agent. He appears to be a Titan.

                Yeah, he is. Here is a quote from the press conference:

                There were a lot of things that bothered me last year and my knee was not one of them.
                Strong words :) Although keep in mind, he did have a 55y TD in week 17 last season. How bad could his knee be if he's doing that in week 17?

                  Wow. If his knee didn't bother him, it must have been the fact that he was so grossly out of shape that resulted in him sucking.

                        If anyone is bitter it would be Falcons' fans. We've endured more than anyone else. However, most of us weren't Crumpler fans last off-season either. He's been overweight and overpaid the past two seasons.

                          That's cool, although he did have a pretty good 06-07. It was arguably his best or 2nd best season production wise. Not sure how a fan could be disappointed in that this time a year ago.

                          From a pure stats standpoint, 07-08 wasn't really that terrible. 450y while missing a few games is easily within his normal range when you also factor in the general offensive woes. Hell his 5TD's match his almost 900y 05-06 season. Alge's a big guy, he isn't exactly meant to be a slender 220lb'r. As an outsider looking at the results it seems to be, if he had Vick or a steady QB, 07-08 would have been another productive year for him. Could have still been overweight, but if the production is there it's less of a point and I don't know if he wouldn't have been typically productive last season with a bit more offensive stability.

                            Crumpler never really was an elite TE in my mind, even when some were saying he was after the '05 season. At this point, he's an injury concern, a drop liability, and he's on the downside of his career. I don't like the signing at all, especailly considering that by the time the Titans will (in their plan) be a big contender, Crumpler's career may be close to over.
