TE Crumpler gets rid of a couple pounds this offseason

The Boston Herald reports that new Pats TE Alge Crumpler has gotten rid of some excess pounds this offseason:

As soon as the Patriots signed Alge Crumpler this offseason, the new tight end vanished and with good reason as the 32-year-old former Atlanta Falcons and Tennessee Titans star spent the last six weeks in Louisiana under the watchful eye of wild, wacky and respected fitness guru Mackie Shilstone, who specializes in prolonging the careers of athletes. The secretive Shilstone cited HIPAA laws and declined to discuss specifics of Crumpler’s old weight (believed to be around 300 pounds) or his new weight (believed to be considerably less) but as Crumpler was scheduled to arrive at the Patriots offseason workout yesterday, all Shilstone will say is, “Just wait. When you look at him, you’ll see a big difference My goal was to allow Alge Crumpler to be Alge Crumpler as long as he cares to do it. I don’t like to see my players at a large amount of body fat. I don’t accept excuses.” That would indicate Crumpler, listed at 266 pounds in 2009, no longer fits into that category.
