The Arizona Cardinals and veteran NFL wide receiver Michael Crabtree have reportedly failed to reach an agreement, despite a report that the two sides reached an agreement on a contract.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Arizona Sports 98.7 FM's John Gambadoro reported Monday night that the Cardinals have not signed Crabtree, refuting an earlier report Monday from ProFootballTalk that said the Cards had signed the 31-year-old receiver.

The Cardinals worked out Crabtree at State Farm Stadium in Glendale on Monday.

Crabtree has played for the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens during his 10-year NFL career. He has 7,477 career receiving yards and 54 career touchdowns in the NFL, and he caught 54 passes for 607 yards and three touchdowns for the Ravens last season. His best NFL season came in 2012 when he caught 85 passes for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns for a 49ers team that lost to the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

Crabtree was selected by the 49ers with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Texas Tech, where he was a two-time consensus All-American. Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury played at Texas Tech from 1998-2002, and he was Texas Tech's head coach from 2013-18. Both men played under former Red Raiders coach Mike Leach.
