Summary

Crabtree signed a modest one-year deal to move across the bay from San Francisco and should be able to hold off Rod Streater, Andre Holmes and Kenbrell Thompkins to win the job as the Raiders' #2 WR across from Amari Cooper. Crabtree was drafted 10th overall in 2009 by the 49ers and improved each of his first four seasons, culminating in a strong 85 catch, 1,105 yard and 9 touchdown season in 2012. He seemed on the verge of becoming a star, but injured his achilles the following offseason. The injury was considered potentially career threatening but Crabtree was able to return late in the 2013 season and play a handful of games. The injury seems to have sapped Crabtree of some explosiveness and he struggled through a mediocre 2014 campaign in which he had a hard time getting on the same page with QB Colin Kaepernick and openly questioned his role in the offense. Crabtree's reputation as a poor presence in the locker room and lack of big plays since his injury dampened the market for his services this offseason. But he remains a strong route runner and is able to create separation with his quickness and strong technique and is a strong fit for the Raiders' needs at the position. While Crabtree's deep speed may be questionable, he should be a strong option as a veteran possession receiver for 2nd-year QB David Carr. (May 14)
