TE Tom Crabtree Drawing Interest from "Multiple" Teams?

TE Tom Crabtree Drawing Interest from "Multiple" Teams?

When the Green Bay Packers decided against giving tight end Tom Crabtree a restricted free agent tender, the team ran the risk of other clubs making an unabated run at signing him away.

Early on in the free-agent process, it appears as if Crabtree is receiving outside interest in his services.

According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, a source said that Crabtree has had "multiple teams" showing "significant" interest at the start of free agency.

Without a tender, Crabtree is essentially an unrestricted free agent. He can sign with which ever team he wants, without the Packers having an ability to match a deal or receive a draft pick in return.

Of course, this vast interest could always be agent-driven, designed to help get the most money out of a return deal to Green Bay. But if it isn't, the Packers could run the risk of losing their most trusted in-line blocker at the position and a core special teams player.

Crabtree, 27, caught eight passes for 203 yards and three touchdowns over 389 snaps last season.

I think I would miss Crabtree more for his off the field stuff than his actual performance

Same here...seems like a genuine great guy.
And IMO, even though he was a part of several big plays last year, his overall play wasn't as good as in previous seasons.
Still would be missed, though, especially if Williams and Quarless don't take the next step.

what's surprising is that he's found a spot on the roster for this long.

Sometimes you need that reliable, old-school tight end. Average catching skills, but good blocker in-line and out in the field. Also was a very good ST player.

Yea it would be nice if Crabtree developed into a good blocker

Don't need him. GB has enough TE on the roster.

As many TDs as Finley and half again!

Packers use him mainly as a blocker so he won't get much air time. The extra he bring is large. Hate to see him go, but go for the money!
