He still hauled in eight touchdowns, but Oakland felt his presence was unnecessary after the addition of former Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens' unyielding effort to land a big-play receiver finally paid off Friday when nine-year veteran Michael Crabtree signed a three-year contract.
This was all happening near the same time that the Ravensbacked out of a deal that would bring wide receiver Ryan Grant aboard. What he didn't say, but what should be quite obvious, is with Grant's deal falling apart because of concerns over his ankle, the sense of urgency to find another receiver ratcheted up. In an offense that, as a whole, dropped off after a gangbusters 2016 season, he posted 58 catches for 618 yards and eight scores. Crabtree didn't stay a free agent for long with the wideout finding a new home in the National Football League on Friday.
Crabtree, 30, returned to the Ravens facility late Friday to sign the deal.
Newsome did not offer much in the way of specifics on Crabtree except to say, "We played against him, what, the last two years?"
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. However, he's had 25 touchdown receptions over the past three years and he has a well-earned reputation as a clutch performer on both third downs and in the red zone.
The Ravens are looking to improve their receivers for quarterback Joe Flacco after ranking No. 29 in passing last season. Crabtree, though, has made them pay since. Two years ago, Crabtree had seven catches for 88 yards and three touchdowns during a 28-27 Raiders win at M&T Bank Stadium.
Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome said at a news conference Friday that Grant had passed his postseason physical with the Redskins but was not cleared by the Ravens' doctors. "So that would probably let you know why we would have a certain level of interest".
The Ravens also have plenty other links to Crabtree. Ravens assistant head coach and tight ends coach Greg Roman was Crabtree's offensive coordinator with the 49ers from 2011-14.
