Yay! Tom Crabtree coming back would be wonderful.
This makes me really happy, you guys. When the Packers didn't tender Tom Crabtree and we heard that there would be a market for his services, I assumed that a team would offer him more per year than the lowest RFA tender of $1.3 million, which the Packers declined to give him. That might still be the case, but at least the team is interesting in bringing him back, according to Rob Demovsky.

Crabtree's a personal favorite of mine, and I know I'm not alone in my admiration. He's a very solid No. 2 or No. 3 tight end who contributes quite a bit as a run blocker and a receiver for a guy who is going to command a very reasonable salary. As much as I think Crabtree deserves to get paid more than $1.3 million per year by someone, I selfishly hope that other teams undervalue him so that we can bring him back.
