After being drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2001, Alge Crumpler provided a consistent impact on the team. Although we have to negate his first two years in Atlanta due to the 20-season cutoff, he still racked up four consecutive Pro Bowl honors, helped the team reach the NFC Championship game in 2004, and forged a strong connection with quarterback Michael Vick.

As the Falcons attempted to enter a rebuild after the arrest of Vick, Crumpler was released and ended up signing with the Tennessee Titans. His career never reached the same peaks after leaving Atlanta, but his impact during his time there was profound.
