    Raiders Expected To Move On From Michael Crabtree

    Sunday, December 31, 1:25 PM

    The Oakland Raiders are expected to move on from wide receiver Michael Crabtree in the offseason, according to sources. The veteran receiver, although being the most consistent for the team in 2017, will be owed $7 million in 2018, which is the third season of a four-year, $34 million extension that he signed in 2015. There would be no dead money against the salary cap if he were to be released. Crabtree started off the year hot, catching six touchdowns in the first six games, but his production tailed off in the second half. He enters Week 17 with 56 catches for 601 yards and eight touchdowns on the season.

On January 1, 2017, Aqib Talib ripped Crabtree's chain off his neck during the Bronco's 24-6 victory over the Raiders. Crabtree didn't retaliate, which was a break from how he possibly would have acted in his first few years in the league. He's active on twitter and his handle is @KingCrab15. He also has an instagram account, which is also kingcrab15. If you're interested in buying his jersey, you can find it on nflshop.com.
