Fisher disappointed Titans lost Crumpler

Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher isn’t happy that he no longer has tight end Alge Crumpler on his team, saying he thinks the New England Patriots acquired a great asset.

“He’s got a lot left,” Fisher told Albert Breer of the Boston Globe. “He’s a terrific person, a great team guy and he’s got a lot of plays left. I was disappointed we weren’t able to keep him.”

So why didn’t the Titans keep Crumpler, who started 29 games in his two seasons in Tennessee? Fisher suggests that it’s a matter of getting younger, although money — especially the fact that they’re paying another tight end, Bo Scaife, almost $5 million in 2010 — also obviously has a lot to do with it.
Whatever the reasons, Fisher says Crumpler will be missed.

“He’s a great locker room guy,” Fisher said. “We’ve got a great young group of tight ends as well.”

    Just watched a replay of the Titans/Texans game from week 2-2009… Watching Crumpler run reminded me of Albert Haynesworth…

    Makes sense for the Pats- they already have MOSS, might as well stockpile some Alge too. If there’s a Jim Fungus out there, I’ll bet he’ll be going to NE as well.

    Don’t forget Jake Mold is on their practice squad.

    @Dapollock: Took the words right out of my mouth…
    They have Alge for two reasons, they don’t have any TEs and more importantly he’s a locker room guy which is what the need for the young guys that Hap forgets they have an abundance of…
    You had Meriweather and the other young DB’s in the lockerroom after that loss in Miami and they were having a great time. That is the crap that needs to stop.
    They’re lucky Bruschi and Harrison weren’t around otherwise their gold teeth would’ve knocked out.
