Michael Crabtree To Meet With Oakland Raiders



According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, it appears that former San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree will visit with the Bay Area rival Oakland Raiders after receiving little to no interest in the free-agent market.

Crabtree, who became increasingly frustrated with his role in the offense last season was hoping to break the bank on the free-agent market but that hasn’t happened.

The Raiders who had the opportunity to draft Crabtree back in 2009 instead chose speed-demon WR Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh pick. A surprise pick that shocked everyone, it appears that Crabtree may be a Raider after all.

In six seasons in San Francisco, Crabtree has 347 catches for 4,327 yards and 26 touchdowns.
