Former Ravens WR Michael Crabtree Signs With Cardinals


Michael Crabtree has found his next NFL destination.

The former Ravens wide receiver signed with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Crabtree was released by the Ravens after just one season with the team. In 16 games with Baltimore last year, Crabtree had 54 receptions for 607 yards and three touchdowns. Those were his lowest numbers in all three categories since 2013, when he played just five games with the San Francisco 49ers due to injury.

Crabtree was also credited with nine drops in 2018, tied for third most in the NFL. His most crucial miscue came Week 5 during a 12-9 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns, when Crabtree dropped what would've been a go-ahead touchdown pass near the end of regulation.

The Ravens revamped their wide receiver corps during the offseason, taking Marquise Brown (first round) and Miles Boykin (third round) with two of their first three picks and signing Seth Roberts as a free agent. Meanwhile, Crabtree, who has 633 catches, 7,477 yards, and 54 touchdowns during his career, will hope for a bounce-back season in Arizona. He will join Ravens all-time sack leader Terrell Suggs, who signed with the Cardinals as a free agent. The Ravens will play their home opener against the Cardinals on Sept. 15.
