Crumpler, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, is expected to help an offense that had only nine touchdown passes in 2007. He will get to play with a quarterback in Vince Young whose mobility is similar to Michael Vick.
``The thing that stands out when you look at Alge as a player is his production and reliability,'' Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt said in a statement Monday. ``He is a complete tight end: a dynamic receiver for the Falcons offense, who also contributed as a blocker to a run offense that ranked first in the league in three of the last four years.''
Crumpler was released Feb. 15 after being plagued by knee problems in 2007, when he had 42 catches for 444 yards and five touchdowns. He was due to count $5.1 million against the salary cap in 2008.
Crumpler has 316 catches for 4,212 yards and 35 touchdowns in seven seasons with Atlanta.
