Crumpler has Seattle on his list

Posted by Jose Romero

Former Atlanta tight end Alge Crumpler, released by the Falcons last week, is on his way to the NFL scouting combine this weekend and could meet with several teams, including the Seahawks. So says the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
On the surface, at least, it looks like there's some mutual interest.

You know, not to stir up a hornet's nest here, but wasn't Mr. Crumpler involved in the on-field homage to Michael Vick after Mr. Vick's issues?

I'm not sure that's something we need in Seattle, but that's my opinion.

I wouldn't mind seeing Crumpler on our team. I think he still has good years ahead of him and the way we use tight ends I would love to see his productivity on the field. I don't think he is trouble of off the field so would be a good Hawk fit.

If he comes at a reasonable cost, he would be an upgrade over what we have had recently. However the draft has at least three viable TE's that we can get in the 1st or 2nd round. It will be interesting to see what develops

If we get Crumpler then we can focus on getting a RB in the first round. Followed by a nice size DT for some meat upfront in the second round. Lastly, pickup another OL in the third round.

Which could have us ready to be in good position for Mike's Final Run for the Superbowl!

Getting Alge would be huge but we still need a starting RB and Alexander sucks. He's timid and injury prone in his older age. The hawks wont be able to get Stewart or Mendenhall so they should look toward the freeagent market. Both Michael Turner and Marion Barber would be great fits in our offense because they are strong fast and hit the hole.

Guys, obviously you're seeing something I'm not, but I'd like to throw this one out here: Do we need another Jerramy Stevens?

The Seahawks went to a lot of time and trouble to make the team something the front office doesn't sweat blood over. Somehow, I'm thinking that those who would make a demonstration on MNF in support of a proponent of dogfighting would not be a great fit.

Please. Explain your reasoning. It's hard for me to believe that there is not another TE in the league that would work better with this team.

whoever said Marion Barber is available in free agency is a dumba$$. Know your football. It's Jones who is available.

"Please. Explain your reasoning. It's hard for me to believe that there is not another TE in the league that would work better with this team."

Julie, please explain your OWN reasoning for thinking crumpler is such a devil as to compare him with that piece of garbage Stevens, you my friend are way off base on this one.

Homage to mike vic on the field? Is that your main argument?

If loyalty to your QB of many years is a bad thing, well i hope the Hawks can get this BMF on the team.

Homage to a guy who tortures and kills dogs is despicable, IMO. I didn't realize this guy was among those who did that homage to Vick thing on TV. If so, then I sure as heck don't want him.

Crumpler would be a good fit, but I'm not pressed for him. This draft is deep at TE. They can afford to see if Stewart or Mendenhall are there at 25 and then get there TE in the 2nd. We also need a WR real bad.

P.S. Crumpler is no Jeremy Stevens on or off the field.
