    Sapp Retires - Cards sign Tuman - Ravens cut Flynn

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7...-with-Crumpler

    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.

    "I really am excited about the opportunity to work with Vince Young. I've admired him as a peer from across the league, and I was itching to get a chance to play with him," Crumpler said.

    The 30-year-old Crumpler had eight touchdown receptions in 2006, and he and the Titans believe he will be a good fit for an offense that needs to improve red zone production.

    "He has 35 career touchdown catches, so he knows how to get open in the end zone," Titans coach Jeff Fisher said Monday while introducing Crumpler. "He knows how to get in the end zone."

    "And I like getting in the end zone," Crumpler said.

    "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.

    "Good tight ends are hard to find," Fisher said. "It was an objective and a goal of ours at the start of the offseason to go ahead and upgrade this position. As they say, one person's loss is another person's gain.

    "Whatever the reasons were in Atlanta to create a situation where Alge became available, we figured we would take advantage of it, and we have."

    Cardinals sign TE Tuman

    The Arizona Cardinals on Monday signed tight end Jerame Tuman to a two-year contract.
    Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Tuman, a 10-year veteran, has spent his entire career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played in 121 games, starting 56, and made 43 receptions for 500 yards and seven touchdowns.
    Last season, Tuman played in six games, starting one, and made one reception for nine yards before being shut down on November 14 with a back injury.
    Looks like the Cards are trying to put the squeeze on the Clowns for signing all our ex-players.

    Good for Jerame, I hope he does well in Arizona. Tuman was always a very serviceable TE for us and learned from the great Mark Bruener.

    I wonder if anyone told Ken Whisenhunt yet that at some point he will have to sign his own players instead of signing ours.
