Tampa Bay added some TE competition late Friday night signing former Packers restricted free agent Tom Crabtree.
Late Friday night multiple sources reported the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed Green Bay restricted free agent tight end Tom Crabtree to a two-year contract.
Crabtree was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2009 by the Kansas City Chiefs and spent part of that season on the Chiefs practice squad then signed by the Green Bay Packers later that same season. In 2010 Crabtree made the Packers roster as a backup to Jermichael Finley and Donald Lee and appeared in all 16 games, primarily as a special-teamer.
Crabtree’s best season came in 2012 where the former Miami of Ohio standout had eight receptions for 203 yards, including a 75-yard TD reception, one of three scores on the year.
For his career Crabtree has 18 receptions for 302 yards and four touchdowns.
The addition of Crabtree gives the Buccaneers six tight ends on their current roster (Crabtree, Luke Stocker, Danny Nobles, Drake Dunsmore, Zach Miller and Nate Byham). 2012 starter Dallas Clark has is currently an unrestricted free agent.
