Crabtree's signing should raise questions about Jimmy Graham's shoulder injury.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints have signed tight end Tom Crabtree, according to ESPN reporter Field Yates.

This has to raise some serious questions as to the severity of Jimmy Graham's shoulder injury. Graham suffered a sprained shoulder on Sunday vs. the Buccaneers, which was originally reported to be not serious. Yeah right.

Drafted in 2010 out of Miami (OH), Crabtree played three years for the Packers before playing one season with the Buccaneers last year.

Below are Crabtree's career statistics.
