New Patriots tight end Alge Crumpler and top-ranked tennis player Serena Williams share an unusual link, as Crumpler is now using the same personal trainer as Williams.

Crumpler's six-week workout regimen with Mackie Shilstone is featured in a piece posted on ESPNBoston.com. One of Crumpler's goals in taking part in the program in Louisiana is career longevity.

The 32-year-old Crumpler enters his 10th NFL season in 2010. While he's no longer the four-time Pro Bowl player he was earlier in his career, he also apparently isn't ready to concede that he's solely a "sixth offensive lineman" as a blocking tight end.

His participation in Shilstone's rigorous program seems to be evidence of that.
