1.)Introduction: The first image many Green Bay Packers fans may have of tight end Tom Crabtree from the 2010 season would be of tight end in training camp just trying to make the season opening roster.
The final image of the season would have to be the Drew Brees-like image of Crabtree holding his son in the air with confetti falling after the Packers won Super Bowl XLV.
Crabtree has been described as a project in the receiving game, but in the blocking department he was looked upon as an immediate contributor.
Such would be his role with the Packers in 2010.
Thomas Louis Crabtree
Height: 6-5 Weight: 244 lbs.
Weighted Career AV (100-95-…): 1 (11873rd overall since 1950)
3.) Expectations entering 2010 season: In a word, none. With Jermichael Finley a budding superstar and the veteran Donald Lee behind Finley, not much was expected of Crabtree this season. In fact, he was not even a lock to make the active roster with rookie Andrew Quarless behind him.
When the dust settled, Crabtree made the 2010 Packers but not much was expected of this third stringer unless some weird rash of injuries broke out.
Like that would ever happen.
4. ) Highlights/Lowlights: When you only catch four passes in a season, you obviously won’t show up much on SportsCenter during Packer highlights. But for one his grabs, Crabtree definitely made the highlight reel.
