Here we are in early August and Michael Crabtree is still working out at home waiting for the phone to ring.

Though the former Raven is climbing a bit in age, now 31 years old and turning 32 in September, he's still got plenty left in the tank to help a team out. With that being said, which organizations should make a move to land him? In this piece, we take a look at three teams.

3. Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks are in the middle of camp, but it still feels incredibly weird without Doug Baldwin's No. 89 driving defensive backs crazy. The WR unit as a whole is incredibly young. Crabtree could step in and mentor the youngsters on the outside, while also playing a reliable role for Russell Wilson. Sounds like a win-win for both parties.

2. Cincinnati Bengals

In the injury department, AJ Green simply can't catch a break. The Bengals' star suffered an ankle injury this summer and will miss some regular season time. With Green once again sidelined, and often battling injuries, it'd be a good chance for Crabtree to arrive in Cincinnati and provide some insurance. No one's expecting him to be a WR1 option for Andy Dalton, but he could certainly go in and make plays when his number is called.

1. New York Giants

The Giants have become a bit of a laughingstock in the NFC East. After trading away Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland, the WR unit was in disarray. Add all the injuries they've suffered, plus the potential 4-game suspension of Golden Tate for a positive PED test and the team is in desperate need of a receiver. Enter Crabtree. Though he's not going to blow by corners anymore, he's still got sure hands and could provide the unit with much-needed experience.
