12:57 PM ET 03.16 | The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former Green Bay Packers tight end Tom Crabtree to a contract, according to Jason Wilde. The terms of the agreement remain unknown at this point. Crabtree hasn't done a whole lot in his NFL career to this point, as he has mostly been used in a reserve role behind Jermichael Finley after being drafted in 2010 out of Miami of Ohio. In three seasons, Crabtree has amassed 18 catches for 302 yards and four touchdowns, three of which came last year. With the Buccaneers, Crabtree will have a chance to see some more time with a very unsettled situation at tight end. Last season, Dallas Clark was the main starter at the position but certainly did not light the world on fire, gaining 435 yards and scoring four times.

It's not how many catches or yards that's important, it's when and where the ball is caught!!!
