"He throws a lot of deep passes", Brown said, "and I feel like I can go get those passes". "I'm excited to put this purple on". After playing his first six seasons in the National Football League with the 49ers, Crabtree signed a one-year, $3.2 million contract with the Raiders in 2015. The 30-year-old had two years left on a four-year, $34 million deal with Oakland. A second deal, for former Washington Redskins receiver Ryan Grant, was scuttled after Grant failed his Ravens physical because of an ankle injury.

Facing the Ravens in the 2012 Super Bowl, Crabtree had five receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown for San Francisco in a 34-31 loss. The former first-round draft pick (10th overall, Texas Tech) has registered 579 receptions for 6,870 yards (11.9 avg.) and 51 touchdowns in 125 career games (122 starts). Ozzie Newsome has been forced to call an audible in his effort to enhance the Baltimore Ravens' passing game. "That would probably let you know why we have a certain level of interest". He gets $15M over 2 years... and it could be up to $20M. Jeremy Maclin was cut after one season in Baltimore, and veterans Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro are free agents who may or may not return.
