Ryan Mathews Biography

Childhood and Highschool

Michael Crabtree was born on 9/14/1987 in Dallas, Texas. He attended David W. Carter High School, where he was a standout wide receiver and a star on the track and basketball court. He was a three star player out of high school and was widely recruited, especially in his home state of Texas. Crabtree choose Texas Tech and quickly made a name for himself as one of the best receivers in college football. 

College

In 2006, Crabtree's first year at Texas Tech, was a non-medical redshirt. He sat out his first year due to transcript issues and because he needed time to transition from quarterback to wide receiver. In 2007, he played 13 games and caught 134 passes for 1962 yards and 22 touchdowns. In his sophomore year, he had 97 receptions, 1165 yards, and 19 touchdowns. He provided highlights every game and stood out as one of the best athletes in college football. 

Crabtree won several awards while in college. In 2007 he was a consensus All-American and the Fred Biletnikoff Award Winner for the best receiver in college football. In 2008, he repeated and won both of the awards again. In 2008, he also finished 5th in the race for the Heisman Trophy. He finished college and entered the 2009 NFL Draft as one of the best football players in the country. 

NFL Draft

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. In 2011, he averaged 12.1 yards per catch and he caught four touchdowns. In 2012, he had a breakout season. He had 85 catches, over one-thousand yards receiving, as well as 9 touchdowns. Crabtree was climbing up the ranks of the NFL when in 2013 he tore his Achilles tendon and was forced to sit out all, but five games. He returned in 2014 and played another full season. 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. 

2016 NFL Season

In 2016, Crabtree played all 16 games and was a constant target for quarterback Derek Carr. He had 1,003 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 89 receptions. He provided plenty of highlights and was a high pick in most fantasy football leagues. 

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. Although he may be dating someone, it's not clear whether he's single or in a relationship at this time.
