Packers free agency: Team interested in bringing back Tom Crabtree?

New, comments

Yay! Tom Crabtree coming back would be wonderful.

USA TODAY Sports

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.
