Cardinals finally agree to terms on one-year deal with Michael Crabtree

Earlier this month, the Arizona Cardinals appeared to be close to an agreement on a deal to bring in veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

However, things fell apart on both sides, with them being unable to come to terms on a contract. Things have changed this time around with the Cardinals finally being able to bring in Crabtree on a one-year contract, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.

The second time was the charm for the Arizona Cardinalslanding Michael Crabtree.

Arizona agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the veteran wide receiver late Wednesday night, more than two weeks after trying him out during training camp.

The move comes coupled with the team’s decision to part ways with former first-round pick Kevin White. The open space has given the team more of an incentive to add a proven wideout to the mix.

Crabtree is coming off a productive lone campaign with the Baltimore Ravens. In Baltimore, he recorded 54 receptions for 607 receiving yards and three touchdowns while playing in all 16 games. He is set to enter his 11th year in the league. He has tallied 633 catches, 7,477 receiving yards and 54 touchdowns over his first decade in the league.

His presence now gives the Cardinals an even more formidable passing game for rookie quarterback Kyler Murray with solid receiving options in Crabtree, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk. Although this is a late signing, it does give Crabtree about two weeks to get ready for the regular season by learning the playbook and getting into football shape.
