The Arizona Cardinals have added a new weapon along the perimeter. After leaving the Arizona facility two weeks ago without a deal, veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree has joined the team.
The Cardinals announced Wednesday that Crabtree would be signing a one-year deal with the organization.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Cardinals release former first-round pick Kevin White. Ultimately, this move led to the team finding more depth at the wide receiver position.
Now, Michael Crabtree will be along the likes of Larry Fitzgerald to lead the rest of the Cardinals young receiving corps. The group of youngsters consist of rookie Andy Isabella, KeeSean Johnson, Christian Kirk and Hakeem Butler.
Throughout his 10 seasons in the NFL, Crabtree has played with the 49ers, Raiders and Ravens. Crabtree, now 31, spent the 2018 season with the Baltimore Ravens. The wide out caught 54 passes for 607 yards and three touchdowns.
With rookie quarterback Kyler Murray at the helm of the Cardinals offense, the team looks to be gathering all the help they can get. If Crabtree could build a chemistry with his new QB1, then the productivity of the offense could improve immensely from last season.
