Michael Crabtree's tenure with the Arizona Cardinals appears to be over after only three games.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Cardinals released Crabtree this afternoon. He played just 13 snaps in yesterday's loss to the Carolina Panthers.

The 32-year-old Crabtree signed a one-year free agent deal with the Cardinals during the summer. He caught four passes for 22 yards in limited duty with the team.

Given the fact teams often need depth during the season, Crabtree might not be done playing this fall. There's a chance he is plucked off the waiver wire by another franchise.

However, it seems likely that Crabtree doesn't have much time left in the NFL. The 2009 first-round pick has had a solid, if not spectacular career.

Crabtree spent 2009-14 with the San Francisco 49ers, the team that drafted him. He moved on to the Oakland Raiders from 2015-17 and was with the Baltimore Ravens last year.

For his career, Crabtree has made 637 receptions for 7,499 yards and 54 touchdowns.
