Raiders officially announce signing of Michael Crabtree

Michael Crabtree doesn’t have to move very far.
The former San Francisco 49ers receiver officially signed a new deal with the Oakland Raiders on Monday night.
The deal is reportedly worth $3 million for one year with incentives available as well.
Crabtree spent the first six years of his career with the 49ers, where he appeared in 79 games with 77 starts. Crabtree had 347 receptions for 4,327 yards and 26 touchdowns over that span with an additional 40 catches for 516 yards and four touchdowns in eight postseason games.
His best season came in 2012 when he racked up 85 catches for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns. However, an Achilles injury derailed most of his 2013 season and Crabtree posted the worst full season numbers of his career in 2014.
As a result, the free agent market for Crabtree was somewhat lacking and it took close to a month for interest to truly pick up.
Crabtree joins James Jones, Andre Holmes and Rod Streater as options in the passing game for quarterback Derek Carr in Oakland.
