Alge Crumpler has agreed to a deal with the New England Patriots, the money and length of the deal were not yet finalized.

"We have a lot of respect for him as a player. He's had an outstanding career," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said earlier this week, before the signing of Crumpler became official. ESPNBoston.com reported last week that a deal was close.

Last year, Crumpler recorded 27 catches, for 222 yards, and 1 touchdown.
