Let's look at his stats. Crabtree caught 60% of his targets in his career. Of his 633 career catches 60% were first down catches. He is #47 in career drop rate among WRs with at least 300 catches with a rate of 5.82% Edelman is just ahead of him with a drop rate of 5.62% He's a decent #3 or #4 option. It does seem that he is a pretty reliable third down option. I'm not jumping up and down over this signing but I am also not poo pooing it either. Looking at who's left out there as a FA, Crabtree isn't such a bad signing. Well I guess all this doesn't matter now since I see he couldn't agree to a contract.
