Mason Crosby has been with the Packers since they drafted him in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. However, with the team drafting Anders Carlson in this year's Draft, could Crosby's time in Green Bay be over?
Mason Crosby: Kicker, Leader & Clutch-Performer
Crosby was known for his consistency and ability to make clutch kicks under pressure. In 2007, he made a game-winning 42-yard field against the Philadelphia Eagles to secure a 16-13 win on opening weekend.
Mason Crosby became the first rookie to hit a game-winning field goal on opening weekend since Matt Bahr in 1979. Crosby was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week (the first rookie to receive that honor in Week 1.)
In 2014, Crosby scored his 1,000th point in his 124th career game in a Week 14 game against the New England Patriots. That made him the third-fastest player to 1,000 points in NFL history. Crosby also made a 48-yard field goal to force overtime against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship.
No. 2 became the all-time leading scorer for the Packers in the 2015 season. The following year, Mason Crosby made a game-winning 51-yard field goal against Dallas Cowboys in the NFC's Divisional Round and passed David Akers for his 20th consecutive field goal converted in the postseason.
Despite COVID-19 impacting the 2020 NFL season, the Texas native was perfect on field goal attempts (16 for 16). In what was perhaps his last season in 2022, he connected on game-winning field goals against the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys.
If this is the end of Crosby's kicking career, the final tally would be 395 out of 485 career attempts (81.4 percent), and the 11th-most all-time career points with 1,918.
Mason Crosby: Off the Field
Over the last 16 years, nobody played a bigger role for the Packers than Crosby on and off the field. Crosby was one of the team captains for Green Bay in 2019 and 2020.
His work off the field is commendable. Crosby was awarded the Chris Greicius Celebrity Award last November for his work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He also served as the co-chairman for the Vince Lombardi golf classic for the past nine years.
It has also been stated by the likes of former Packers QB Aaron Rodgers that the Crosby family enjoyed hosting holiday events and meals for teammates.
If we've seen Mason Crosby's final kick, it's been one hell of a run for the Colorado University alum. We look forward to seeing what's next in his post-playing career.
