Ravens sign WR Michael Crabtree to three-year deal

Ravens sign WR Michael Crabtree to three-year deal”

Free agent WR Ryan Grant's ankle has been medically cleared by Dr. Robert Anderson, and Grant will visit the Colts on Friday.

The Ravens chose to part ways with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin a few days ago and don't seem intent on re-signing veteran free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace, either.

The Baltimore Ravens signed wide receiver Michael Crabtree to a three-year contract on Friday, the team announced.

"To me, that's not a football decision, that's a medical decision that I have no control over", Newsome said, stressing that he trusts the Ravens' medical personnel. In 2016 he posted 89 receptions for 1,003 yards and eight touchdowns.

After being released by the Raiders Thursday following the signing of Jordy Nelson, Crabtree heads to the Ravens less than 24 hours later.

The Ravens also have plenty other links to Crabtree.

He is averaging 28.1 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game this season. And they just might have superstar Anthony Davis back to lead the way.

Newsome dismissed any scrutiny the Ravens have faced nationally over the size of the deal for a player who has no 100-yard games and has not reached 1,000 yards in his four-year career. However, that deal had to be scrapped after Grant failed a physical on Thursday night.

He was the intended receiver on quarterback Colin Kaepernick's fourth-and-goal incomplete pass that culminated the Ravens' late goal-line stand in their Super Bowl XLVII victory over the 49ers.

"I always imagined myself being a Raven when I was little", Crabtree said.

For now, it's a waiting game to see where Crabtree, 30, continues his NFL career as enters his 10th season in the league this fall. They're also spending just a touch more on average in guaranteed money, but Crabtree has also proven to be productive throughout his career.

If Crabtree can produce significant dividends in 2018, then the Ravens' strategy will pay off in Ozzie Newsome's final year as Baltimore's general manager.

"This time of the year, as we're looking, they're looking", Newsome said.
