Early years

Crabtree played high school football for Bloom-Carroll High School in Carroll, Ohio. He attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he played tight end for the RedHawks for four seasons from 2005 to 2008. Primarily known as an excellent blocker, during his career at Miami he caught 40 passes for 329 yards (an 8.1 average) with two touchdowns.

Professional career

Kansas City Chiefs

Crabtree was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent on May 8, 2009. He appeared in all four of Kansas City’s preseason games, with two catches for 19 yards. He was then waived in the Chiefs' final roster cutdown on September 6, but he was signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad the next day after clearing waivers. He was released after the third regular-season game.

Green Bay Packers

During the 2009 NFL season, Crabtree was signed to the Green Bay Packers practice squad for the final five weeks of the 2009 NFL season and then to a reserve/futures contract after the season ended. He made it past the Packers' final roster cutdown before the 2010 NFL season as their third-string tight end behind Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee and ahead of rookie tight end Andrew Quarless.

In the 2010 regular season for the Packers, he totaled four catches for 61 yards. In 2011, he had six catches for 38 yards and one touchdown.

Crabtree started all 16 games on offense and special teams. He caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter of the Packers' wild card game at the Philadelphia Eagles, opening the scoring with his first NFL touchdown.

He won a Super Bowl ring with the Packers on February 6, 2011 at Cowboys Stadium in Super Bowl XLV, won by the Packers 31-25. In the game, he had one catch (from Aaron Rodgers) for one yard and he also made one tackle.

In 2012 against the Chicago Bears, Crabtree caught a touchdown pass from holder Tim Masthay on a fake field goal, as the Packers went on to win 23-10. Against the Houston Texans, he caught a 58-yard touchdown pass. Against the Cardinals, he caught a career-long 72-yard touchdown pass.[1]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Crabtree signed a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 15, 2013.[2]


He married Chelsea Crabtree on June 28, 2009. They have a son, Bryce Thomas Crabtree, born October 14, 2010, and a daughter, Delaynie. He also has two dogs: Molly, a Boston Terrier, and Charlie, a Pug. He and his wife are active in raising funds and awareness for juvenile diabetes and for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
