Crabtree leaves Packers for Buccaneers

Free-agent TE Tom Crabtree leaves Green Bay to sign with the Buccaneers.

Tight end Tom Crabtree has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a tweet from his marketing agent.

Crabtree was a restricted free agent entering the offseason, but the Packers decided not to tender him an offer and that gave him unrestricted status.

The terms of Crabtree's contract with the Buccaneers are not yet known.

Crabtree, 27, was part of a deep tight end group in Green Bay that included Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, D.J. Williams and Ryan Tayor.

Last season, Crabtree had eight catches for 203 yards and three touchdowns.
