The New England Patriots had a huge void to fill with the departure of tight end Ben Watson in free agency. However, it didn’t take long for the Patriots to fill it.
According to the Boston Herald, via ProFootballTalk.com, the Patriots have announced the signing of tight end Algee Crumpler.
Crumpler last year with the Tennessee Titans caught 27 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown. That is not bad considering he was the second tight end on the depth chart to Bo Scaife.
Last year for the Patriots Watson caught 29 passes for 404 yards receiving and five touchdowns. That means there should be no drop off with switching to Crumpler.
In the end, its business as usual for the Patriots.
