    Michael Crabtree Will Return To The Raiders In 2018

    Tuesday, February 27, 9:29 PM

    Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree will return to the Raiders in 2018, sources tell Vic Tafur of The Athletic. There had been some discussion that Crabtree could be released, given his rough finish to last season and the fact that his $7.5 million (in salary and roster bonus) next season is not guaranteed, but he met with new coach Jon Gruden and is back in the fold. Crabtree, 30, finished last season with 58 catches for 618 yards, after catching 89 passes for 1,003 yards in 2016, and eight touchdowns in 14 games. Crabtree also had troubles with his attitude last season, getting suspended after getting in a fight with Aquib Talib and getting into a war of words with former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon. When accused by Gannon for not playing hard, Crabtree said "I done played 60 minutes every time we play. Game winners after game winners, like I do everything they asked of me. These last two games, I probably had three targets, but nobody's saying nothing about that." The team will look for Crabtree to bounce back in 2018 as part of a receiver foursome with Amari Cooper, Cordarrelle Patterson and Seth Roberts.

Doctors assured teams that he would be ready to play in time for training camp. While it wasn't recorded at the combine, his 40 time was recorded while at Texas Tech as being 4.54 seconds. His vertical and statistics for other drills are unknown due to his injury.

    Personal Life

    Michael Crabtree is outspoken in and out of the locker room. Most of his teammates publicly support him, but he's not as popular with his opponents. 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.
