Chiefs to Add a Crabtree?

New, comments

Note: Original picture removed by request.

Based on "league sources" (ahem), I'm going to speculate that Miami (OH) TE Tom Crabtree will be coming to the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.

Crabtree's teammate? Miami's other tight end, Jake O'Connell, who was selected by the Chiefs in the 7th round of the NFL draft this past weekend.

Crabtree, who is 6'5" tall and weighs 255 pounds, seems to be a lot like his teammate O'Connell. Here are Crabtree's stats:

Statistics No Yds Avg TD
2008 10 64 6.4 0
2007 15 139 9.3 1
2006 14 124 8.9 1
2005 1 2 2.0 0
2004 0 0 0.0 0
Career 40 329 8.2 2

Crabree doesn't even show up on NFL Draft Scout's list of top tight ends, so we're going to assume he's like all of these other undrafted free agents, just looking for any shot at all to make the team.

Crabtree would join current the Chiefs' tight ends Jed Collins, Tony Curtis, Jake O'Connell and Brad Cottam. He would also join the Chiefs '09 class of undrafted free agents, which are:

DT Dion Gales, Troy (6'7", 288 pounds)

LB, Bobby Abare, Yale (6'2", 220 pounds)

DE Bobby Greenwood, Alabama (6'5", 278 pounds)

DB/WR Londen Fryar, Western Michigan (5'11", 185 pounds)

LB Pierre Walters, Eastern Illinois (6'4", 265 pounds)

WR Taurus Johnson, South Florida (6'1", 190 pounds)

LB Jovan Belcher, Maine (6'3", 235 pounds)

OT Cameron Goldberg, Duke (6'4", 286 pounds)

S Ricky Price, Oklahoma St. (6'1", 195 pounds)

LB Corey Smith, Cincinnati (6'1", 225 pounds)

CB Jackie Bates, Hampton (5'10", 172 pounds)

Make sure you intentionally mislead your co-workers and friends as long as possible about which Crabtree the Chiefs signed.
