Michael Crabtree Signs With New NFL Team

RAVENS FREE AGENCY

Michael Crabtree has signed with the Ravens after being released by the Raiders on March 16, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

After being released by the Raiders Thursday following the signing of Jordy Nelson, Crabtree heads to the Ravens less than 24 hours later.

However, with only $11 million guaranteed, it might give the Ravens an out in 2019 if Crabtree doesn't pan out this season.

Newsome also acknowledged that the Ravens are pursuing free-agent receiver Michael Crabtree, who was reportedly at the team facility that day after being released by the Oakland Raiders, but Newsome said the Grant situation had no bearing on the pursuit of Crabtree.

"Michael has played very well against the Ravens, so we know firsthand the attributes he brings to the game", Newsome said in a team statement.

Baltimore is in deep need of adding some better receivers and Crabtree fits the bill.

Crabtree has produced at least eight receiving touchdowns in a season four times, including in each of the past three years (nine - 2015, eight - 2016 & eight - 2017).

The 30-year-old Crabtree played six seasons with San Francisco before joining the Raiders.

He was the intended receiver on quarterback Colin Kaepernick's fourth-and-goal incomplete pass that culminated the Ravens' late goal-line stand in their Super Bowl XLVII victory over the 49ers. His best season to date was probably in 2012 with the 49ers when he caught 85 passes for 1,105 yards and 9 touchdowns.

Since he entered the National Football League in 2009, Crabtree's 51 receiving scores rank 10th among active wide receivers, while his receptions (579) are seventh, and his receiving yards (6,870) are 12th.

Baltimore was rumored to be interested in several top free-agent wideouts earlier in the week, but bigger names such as Allen Robinson and Donte Moncrief signed elsewhere.
