Crumpler part of USO tour
Falcons tight end Alge Crumpler will be among four NFL players that will travel to U.S. military bases throughout the Persian Gulf as part of the league’s annual NFL-USO tour. Joining Crumpler will be Patriots tight end Ben Watson, Kansas City Chiefs guard Will Shields, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shelton Quarles.
The NFL began this in 1966 during the Vietnam War. Falcons defensive end Patrick Kerney was part of the tour last season.
