Agent: Titans agree to deal with Pro Bowl TE Alge Crumpler

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The agent for former Atlanta tight end Alge Crumpler says the Pro Bowl tight end has agreed to a two-year contract with the Tennessee Titans.

Crumpler had been courted by two other teams, but agent James Williams said Monday morning that Crumpler and his wife liked Nashville when they visited last week.

The Titans also have offered the plus of playing with quarterback Vince Young, whose style is similar to Atlanta's Michael Vick.

Crumpler, a four-time Pro Bowler, was released Feb. 15 by the Atlanta Falcons. He was plagued by knee problems in 2007 and had only 44 catches. He was cut because he was due to count $5.1 million against the cap in 2008, too much for the rebuilding Falcons to spend.
