He sat out his first year due to transcript issues and because he needed time to transition from quarterback to wide receiver.

    Michael Crabtree was selected by the San Francisco 49ers as the 10th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. Crabtree didn't participate in the combine because doctors found a slight stress fracture in his left foot, which required surgery in March. 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. 

    In his rookie year, he played 11 games and hauled in 48 catches for 625 yards and two touchdowns. In 2010, he started 16 games, scored 6 touchdowns, and went for 741 yards.

He caught 68 passes for 698 yards and 4 touchdowns. 

    2015 NFL Season

    In 2015, Crabtree was traded to the Oakland Raiders, where he continues to play today. His initial contract was for one year and a salary of $3 million, with an extra $2 million in incentives. That year, he played all 16 games, caught 85 passes for 922 yards, and recorded 9 touchdowns.

    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.
