ATLANTA (AP) -The Atlanta Falcons moved quickly to replace tight end Alge Crumpler by agreeing to terms with free agent Ben Hartsock.
Hartsock, who was drafted in the third round in 2004 by Indianapolis, is best known for his blocking ability. He has just 24 catches for 247 yards in 45 career games, including 12 catches for 138 yards with Tennessee last season.
Terms of the deal were not released.
The agreement with Hartsock comes one day after the Falcons signed defensive backs Erik Coleman and Von Hutchins.
The Falcons also have had talks with running back Michael Turner in Atlanta this weekend.
Coleman, who had seven interceptions and 338 tackles in four years with the New York Jets, is the likely replacement for safety Chris Crocker, who is an unrestricted free agent.
