Mason Crosby, the Green Bay Packers all-time leading points scorer and kicker since 2007, will not be returning to the team this season.
This news comes after his contract expired at the beginning of the new league year in March, and as of now, he remains unsigned.
Crosby’s departure marks the end of an incredible run with the Packers, as he had played in every game since the 2007 season.
The Packers’ decision to draft kicker Anders Carlson in the sixth round further hinted at an impending transition away from Crosby.
The draft selection was the first time the Packers had chosen a kicker since they selected Crosby himself 16 years ago.
Furthermore, Molly Crosby, Mason’s wife, seemingly confirmed their departure from Green Bay through a tweet.
Replying to a fan, she wrote, “I know…sort of feel Ike graduating high school. But sadder.”
Molly promptly recognized her error and deleted the post she had made on social media. Both Crosby and the Green Bay Packers have chosen not to provide any comments regarding the situation.
Is Mason Crosby Retiring?
Despite fans’ assumptions that Mason Crosby would either remain with the Packers or retire, Crosby himself has made it clear that he has no plans to retire from professional football.
If the Packers choose not to re-sign him, it is likely that he will seek a new team to continue his career.
Hence, his fans and followers can be assured that they will see their favorite player in action.
Selected in the sixth round of the 2007 draft, Mason Crosby established himself as the Green Bay Packers’ highest-scoring player of all time.
As a kicker, he developed a remarkable ability to navigate and deliver when required.
Where Is Mason Crosby Going?
After the tweet went viral, many speculated that Mason Crosby may be considering retirement or exploring options with other teams, but no official confirmation has been made at this time.
As a result, we cannot be 100% sure of his decisions, but with the recent build-up, he may choose somewhere where he is comfortable.
Wherever his future may take him, one thing remains certain: Crosby’s talent and dedication will continue to shine, leaving a lasting impact wherever he goes.
His skills and professionalism have made him a cherished figure, and his next team will undoubtedly benefit from his exceptional abilities on the field.
