Report: Tom Crabtree to work out for Giants

The Giants will reportedly take a look at a veteran tight end who should be well-versed in offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo’s scheme.

Via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Giants will put ex-Buccaneers tight end Tom Crabtree through a workout next week.

The 28-year-old Crabtree has played 53 regular season games, catching 22 passes for 323 yards and five touchdowns. Before a one-season stint with Tampa Bay (2013), Crabtree played three seasons for Green Bay (2010-2012). McAdoo was Crabtree’s position coach in his first two NFL seasons.

Crabtree would give the Giants another experienced option at a position where the club doesn’t have a clear top target. Brandon Myers, the Giants’ primary receiving tight end in 2013, signed with Tampa Bay in free agency.

    Guy is terrible. Never understood why people were tearing GB for letting him go to Tampa, I figured he wouldn’t be there for long. He’s tough but he’s going to be a bottom end player on your offense.

    Very bad that my Giants are in full panic mode. They are desperate to make up for the big hole left by the departures of Brandon Myers and Hakeem Nicks. Ryan Nassib doesn’t have anyone to throw to. Not good.

    We in green Bay welcome you back over our current roster of garbage.

    I’d like to see him stick on with the giants. He’s a solid #2 & special teams guy. He could help a team.

    Crabtree is consistent, steady and a hard worker. You know exactly what to expect from him, but he’s hardly spectacular. You could certainly do worse than him, but it’s hard to imagine there aren’t better options out there, either. I’m assuming McAdoo’s familiarity with him is the main reason for the visit.

    This guy is twice the receiver than that sorry assed Crabtree from the left coast. No one is better than this guy…he’s the best!

    If you think Crabtree is terrible, you either have unrealistic expectations or don’t know what you’re talking about. TC is a throwback TE meaning he can block with the best of them but can still catch a ball every now and then. He automatically makes any TE group tougher and provides legitimacy. Injuries hampered him last year. Glad to see he’s getting another look somewhere else.

    He also plays on special teams pretty good.

    Best NFL player on twitter hands down.

    After Lovie saw what he could do against the Bears… he immediately cut him from the Bucs.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    Dude is a solid no.3 sort of Tight End.
    Shouldn’t be too expensive.
    He’ll play special teams and help out.

    Everyone could use depth.

    He should go to the Vikings…. as the starting QB.
