FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/67038) released four-time Pro Bowl tight end Alge Crumpler (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/69087) and six other players Friday in the first step of a major rebuilding job in the post-Michael Vick era.


The Falcons (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/67038) also cut quarterback Byron Leftwich (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/140415), defensive tackle Rod Coleman (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/69897), offensive tackle Wayne Gandy (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/70589), cornerback Lewis Sanders (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/69377), wide receiver Jamin Elliott (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/106020) and linebacker Marcus Wilkins (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player/106026).
"This is a difficult day for the entire organization," said Thomas Dimitroff, the Falcons (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/67038)' new general manager. "A number of these players have contributed to this organization on and off the field at a high level, and we greatly appreciate their efforts." None contributed more than Crumpler, one of the team's most respected players and a leader in the locker room. He twice led the Falcons (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/67038) in receptions and had a streak of four straight Pro Bowl appearances from 2003-06.

Word around the league is that he has gained a lot of undesired weight. I guess to those sources close to the organization, this move wasn't much of a surprise.

Any of these offensive line players worth taking a look at?

Nothing in sports is more frustrating than watching your team get picked apart by someone who looks like he'd fit better in the Nathan's hot dog eating contest instead of the NFL.

Not to mention making "Kordell 2.0" look like an All-Pro QB. :dang:
