NFL Rumors: Tom Crabtree to work out for New York Giants


The New York Giants would like to add another tight end to their roster.

Many believe the Giants could add a former Green Bay Packers’ tight end, Jermichael Finley, but instead it looks like they could add Tom Crabtree, who spent the 2013 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to Conor Orr of The New Jersey Star Ledger, Crabtree will be working out for the Giants.

Tom Crabtree, a former tight end with the Packers, Chiefs and Buccaneers, will work out for the Giants next week, according to a person familiar with the situation…

…Crabtree is familiar with Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, a former tight ends coach in Green Bay, and could be a valuable addition to an uncertain group of tight ends on the current roster. Adrien Robinson, the teams 2012 fourth-round pick, currently leads the depth chart following a strong spring session.

Crabtree signed a two-year deal with Tampa Bay last season but spent most of the year on injured reserve with an ankle sprain and torn bicep, though, according to a person familiar with the situation, Crabtree is healthy now.

Crabtree, a former Miami (Oh) Redhawk, went undrafted in 2009, but was picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs. He was released after the preseason and was picked up by the Packers. He made his NFL debut in 2010.

He made just four receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown last season in seven games for the Buccaneers in 2013. He has 22 receptions for 323 yards and five touchdowns in his career.
