Reports: Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree Is Visiting Ravens Friday


Veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree will visit the Ravens Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Crabtree was released by the Oakland Raiders Thursday after they signed veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who was cut just a day earlier by the Green Bay Packers.

Crabtree, 30, is heading into his 10th season and has two 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, including one in 2016 when he caught 89 passes for 1,003 yards and eight touchdowns.

His production dipped to 58 catches for 618 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games last year, however, as the Raiders offense as a whole didn't play up to the level it had in 2016. It was Crabtree's lowest yardage total outside of his 2013 season, in which he played just five games.

The Ravens have had success signing wide receivers on the back nine of their careers, including Derrick Mason, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith Sr. and others.
