Michael Crabtree Will Sign With Oakland Raiders


According to multiple sources, it appears that WR Michael Crabtree will strike a deal with the Oakland Raiders.

The disgruntled wide-receiver who called himself a third-down receiver while often showing signs of frustration during post-game interviews will now take his talents across the Bay.

I have to be honest, when Crabtree was drafted by the team back in 2009, I thought the 49ers  found their next great wide-receiver. However, that was not the case as Crabtree could only muster one 1,000 yard-season in six years.

If you remember, Crabtree should have been drafted by the Raiders all along but the team made a bold move and drafted WR Darryius Heyward-Bey instead.

Last year Crabtree finished with 68 catches for 698 yards and four touchdowns.
