Murrell.jpgOn the heels of the news coming that Alge Crumpler is visiting Foxborough today, we pass along this -- A source has confirmed that Jets special teamer Marques Murrell is there with him.

Murrell's in his third NFL season, having come into the league as undrafted free agent with the Eagles in 2007. He was released by the Eagles before playing a game for them, and picked up by the Jets.

The Jets chose not to tender Murrell, and he's already paid a visit to the Broncos.

A couple of interesting things on Murrell. First, he played for Div. I-AA powerhouse Applachian State, which means he does have a winning pedigree. And second, he's the younger brother of Adrian Murrell, the ex-Jets running back who was together with Patriots coach Bill Belichick (then the NYJ defensive coordinator) in New York in 1997.

ESPNBoston.com first reported on the visit.
