The Baltimore Ravens worked out free-agent wide receiver Michael Floyd, according to a source. Since recording 1,000 yards receiving and five touchdowns with the Cardinals in 2013, his second year in the league, Floyd has been a disappointment and declined rapidly. Several off-field incidents haven't helped his cause, and he totaled just 10 catches for 78 yards in 11 games for the Vikings last season. Baltimore has already added wideouts Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, so Floyd would likely just be depth and insurance. His days of fantasy relevance appear over.
New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent wide receiver Willie Snead is visiting with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, according to a source. Baltimore is seriously trying to upgrade their receiving corps after they struggled big time in 2017. They have already added Michael Crabtree and John Brown, so Snead would be battling for playing time with the Ravens. Snead never got going in 2017 while serving a suspension and fighting through an injury, catching eight passes for just 92 yards. Landing in Baltimore isn't a place that will revive Snead's fantasy value.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree will be 'a reliable receiver' for QB Joe Flacco, according to retired WR Anquan Boldin. 'I had a chance to play with Crab for two or three years out in San Francisco,' Boldin said. 'Like I said, competitive guy, he's a crafty guy, a veteran guy, a guy that can really catch the ball.'
Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is not ruling out re-signing wide receivers Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro. The team has had talks with both players. The veteran Wallace was one of Baltimore's most consistent pass catchers in an atrocious group last season, hauling in 52 passes for 748 yards and four touchdowns. However, with Baltimore already adding wideouts Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, Wallace's ceiling would be considerably lower for fantasy owners if he returns. Campanaro had only 19 receptions for 173 yards and a touchdown in 13 games and has never been a fantasy option.
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree's three-year contract is worth $21 million. The deal includes $11 million in guaranteed money and could be worth up to $20 million over the first two seasons.
Baltimore Ravens sign free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree to a 3-year deal worth $21 million. While Crabtree posted 16 touchdowns in the last two seasons, he fell off dramatically in 2017 (58 catches, 618 yards) and fell out of favor with the new coaching staff under head coach Jon Gruden. Crabtree will be given the chance to be the top receiver for Baltimore which could offer a solid floor to his value. Both Baltimore fans and Crabtree owners hope that he will fare better with his move to Baltimore than Jeremy Maclin has. Crabtree offers hope to Baltimore fans but the struggles with the passing game last season suggest caution.
The Baltimore Ravens reached an agreement with free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) on a three-year contract on Friday, March 16, according to a source. Financial details were undisclosed.
Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) will visit the Baltimore Ravens Friday, March 16.
New free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree will visit Baltimore on Friday. Crabtree was released by Oakland on Thursday. The Ravens also had a rough day Thursday as they had to void a contract they had agreed to with wide receiver Ryan Grant after he failed his physical. While Crabtree posted 16 touchdowns in the last two seasons, he fell off dramatically in 2017 (58 catches, 618 yards) and fell out of favor with the new coaching staff under head coach Jon Gruden. The 30-year-old veteran could catch on with Baltimore, where owners will likely need him to continue his touchdown production to provide value at the spot his name value will have him taken in fantasy drafts.
Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) is scheduled to visit the Baltimore Ravens on Friday, March 16.
Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was released Thursday, March 15, according to a source.
The Oakland Raiders are releasing wide receiver Michael Crabtree on Thursday, according to a source. While it's not official yet, this likely means Oakland will be signing free-agent receiver Jordy Nelson to take Crabtree's place as the main red-zone weapon for quarterback Derek Carr. While Crabtree posted 16 touchdowns in the last two seasons, he fell off dramatically in 2017 (58 catches, 618 yards) and fell out of favor with the new coaching staff under head coach Jon Gruden. The 30-year-old veteran should latch on quickly with another organization, where he'll mainly be a touchdown-dependent receiver.
Free agent wide receiver Jordy Nelson is close to a deal with the Oakland Raiders, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The Raiders trying to finalize deal today for Nelson, who still is in Oakland, sources tell ESPN. "This is going to get done," one source said of the talks. As far as Schefter knows, Nelson is on his way to becoming a Raider, which could be bad news for Michael Crabtree. Nelson had a disappointing season in 2017 with Green Bay, catching only 53 passes for 482 yards (career-low 9.1 yards per catch) and six touchdowns. The 33-year-old struggled mightily to separate from cornerbacks, but he remains a great red-zone option and would definitely improve Oakland's versatility on offense. If healthy, Nelson could be an intriguing sleeper at a reduced cost in 2018.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree is expected to be released if the team signs free-agent wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who was visiting with Oakland on Tuesday. Releasing Crabtree would result in more than $7 million in salary cap space. The Raiders would be a familiar fit for Nelson, as he has history with wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett and general manager Reggie McKenzie from their time in Green Bay. Like the rest of the team's offense in 2017, the veteran Crabtree had just 58 receptions for 618 yards and eight touchdowns. He remains a red-zone threat in Oakland, but his fantasy value would be in flux if he were to hit the open market.
Free-agent wide receiver Jordy Nelson is visiting with the Oakland Raiders, according to a source. Nelson was surprisingly cut by the Packers on Tuesday, but he's expected to land on his feet soon with a new team. Nelson had a disappointing season in 2017 with Green Bay, catching only 53 passes for 482 yards (career-low 9.1 yards per catch) and six touchdowns. The 33-year-old struggled mightily to separate from cornerbacks, but he remains a great red-zone option and would definitely improve Oakland's versatility on offense. If the Raiders add Nelson, though, that'd be bad news for veteran Michael Crabtree. If healthy, Nelson could be an intriguing sleeper at a reduced cost in 2018, depending on where he ends up.
The Oakland Raiders might release WR Michael Crabtree if they are able to land free-agent WR Jordy Nelson. If the Raiders release Crabtree it would result in more than $7 million in cash and cap savings.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch and WR Michael Crabtree are not guaranteed roster spots next season because the team is uncomfortable with their 2018 salaries, according to sources. Lynch is scheduled to make $4 million in salary next season with the chance to make another $4 million in bonuses. Crabtree is scheduled to make $7 million with a chance for $1.05 million in bonuses. The team may look to restructure the contracts.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree may not be as safe with the Raiders as previously though, as the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Crabtree remains a candidate for release. The Athletic reported Tuesday that Crabtree would be back, but reporter Michael Gehlken says it will only be "at the right price," and that the situation is "in flux." Going on 31, Crabtree caught just 58 balls in 2017, averaging an anemic (for a receiver) 10.7 yards per catch. Per Gehlken, he was more of a "problem (than) solution" in the locker room. Crabtree's status should be known before the start of the new league year on March 14.
Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree has met with head coach Jon Gruden in the past month, and the expectation is Crabtree will return for the 2018 season.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree will return to the Raiders in 2018, sources tell Vic Tafur of The Athletic. There had been some discussion that Crabtree could be released, given his rough finish to last season and the fact that his $7.5 million (in salary and roster bonus) next season is not guaranteed, but he met with new coach Jon Gruden and is back in the fold. Crabtree, 30, finished last season with 58 catches for 618 yards, after catching 89 passes for 1,003 yards in 2016, and eight touchdowns in 14 games. Crabtree also had troubles with his attitude last season, getting suspended after getting in a fight with Aquib Talib and getting into a war of words with former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon. When accused by Gannon for not playing hard, Crabtree said "I done played 60 minutes every time we play. Game winners after game winners, like I do everything they asked of me. These last two games, I probably had three targets, but nobody's saying nothing about that." The team will look for Crabtree to bounce back in 2018 as part of a receiver foursome with Amari Cooper, Cordarrelle Patterson and Seth Roberts.
