Raiders new WR Crabtree talks about criticism with 49ers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Wide receiver Michael Crabtree is shedding no tears over his departure from the 49ers, which resulted in a short move to Oakland.

Crabtree signed a one-year, incentive-laden deal for $3.2 million with the Raiders.

His experience in San Francisco was not always positive, especially as it neared its end. He spoke about feeling disrespected, referring himself as a third-down receiver and a fourth option, after an overtime victory over New Orleans. The result was criticism about his attitude.

"That's just talk," Crabtree told ESPN. "I don't worry about talk. Some people say a lot of things, but until you get to know people, then you'll know for yourself. It's just talk. ... I was friends with my teammates."

Crabtree never fulfilled his potential with the Niners after being selected No. 10 overall in 2009. Injuries prevented him from displaying his explosiveness and he finished his six seasons there with 347 receptions for 4,237 yards and 26 touchdowns.


Raiders WR Michael Crabtree trying to prove himself


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) After struggling to produce the same numbers in 2014 as previous seasons, Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he's working to silence his doubters, reports CSNBayArea.com.

"I've got a lot to prove, a lot," Crabtree said. "I don't have anything to lose, but I've got a lot to prove."

Crabtree caught 68 receptions for 698 yards in 2014, and coach Jack Del Rio said he can still be a productive player.

"He brings sure hands, the ability to separate and catch the ball," he said. "He has played in big games and made big catches. He has had significant production through the first six years of his career. He's a good football player."


Raiders' Del Rio on Michael Crabtree: Good to have him on team


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he is pleased the team was recently able to add veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree, reports CSNBayArea.com.

"It's great to have Michael on board," Del Rio said. "Obviously, he's a guy that's been a productive player on a real good team the last several years and comes in here eager to join our organization and become a good teammate and to find his way and create a role for himself. So, he's a guy that has an outstanding catching radius, a real good understanding of how to get himself open and find some of the soft spots in a defense. He knows how to go up and make the contested catch and those kinds of things. We feel good about being able to acquire Michael."

Crabtree is trying to rebound after a disappointing 2014 season where he caught 68 passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns.


Report: Deal signed by WR Crabree with Raiders worth $3 million


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) The one-year contract signed Monday night by wide receiver Michael Crabtree with the Raiders totals $3 million, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Sources had claimed he was seeking a $4.5 million deal but had to settle for less with the possibility of earning more through incentives.

The 27-year-old Crabtree has slipped in recent seasons after peaking at 85 catches for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns in 2012. He snagged 68 for 698 yards and four scores for San Francisco last year. It was his first full season after undergoing surgery on a torn Achilles tendon.

According to a report from ESPN, receiver Michael Crabtree will sign a contract with the Raiders as early as Monday night. Crabtree spent his first six NFL seasons with the 49ers, thus making his travel plans rather light. 

Crabtree confirmed the news on Twitter, posting that he has signed with the team

"It's official.. I'm a Raider," he wrote. 

Last week, Crabtree visited the Raiders but did not sign a contract. He reportedly took a patient approach to free agency. 

The Dolphins were also in pursuit of Crabtree since the new league year began. 

In 2014, Crabtree caught 68 passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns. His best season with the Niners came in 2012, when he went for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns.

Report: Michael Crabtree to meet with the Raiders next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Michael Crabtree willing to wait on signing contract


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Free-agent receiver Michael Crabtree is in no rush to find a new team. 

According to a report from CSN Bay Area, Crabtree is willing to wait a while before signing a contract with an NFL team. One of Crabtree's preferences, per the report, is for his new team to emphasize the passing game. 

The 49ers are interested in bringing Crabtree back but they already added Torrey Smith on a five-year, $40 million contract. With Anquan Boldin still playing at a high level, Crabtree could see the situation in San Francisco as unfavorable. 

Crabtree has already met with the Dolphins during this offseason.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Speaking to the media at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Thursday, Tomsula was asked if he wanted Crabtree back.

"Absolutely," he said. "Those talks are happening this week. I don't have the checkbook, so I'm not in those particular conversations, but I do know that leaving San Francisco, heading to the airport the other day, that everything was lined up to talk to all of our people."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Michael Crabtree doesn't sound eager to return to 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Crabtree is finishing up a disappointing season. He's played every game but has only 64 catches for 657 yards and four touchdowns, a far cry from the 85 grabs, 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns he put up in his last full season, 2012.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree plays sparingly vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree managed just one catch for five yards in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Crabtree, who was questionable to play Saturday due to a knee injury, remained on the sidelines for large portions of the game, even donning a baseball cap at one point. It appeared he was set to play only in an emergency situation. However, the receiving corps was struck by multiple injuries, leaving the team to turn to Crabtree late, and he recorded his only catch in overtime.

Crabtree will try and heal up in time to serve a larger role in his team's season finale against the Cardinals in Week 17.

49ers' Michael Crabtree does little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Need to see more from Michael Crabtree


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Wide receiver Michael Crabtree suddenly became quarterback Colin Kaepernick's preferred option Week 14 at Oakland with 14 targets, three more than his season high and four more than in his previous two games combined.

Of course, he wasn't so productive with those targets, picking up 56 yards on nine catches, so at this point, Fantasy owners would just prefer they go to Anquan Boldin. Outside of maybe PPR leagues, nobody is activating Crabtree based on this performance.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


49ers' Michael Crabtree hauls in nine passes


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree hauled in nine passes Week 14 against the Raiders.

Crabtree gained just 56 yards on his nine receptions. He was mostly used as a short-yardage option, with his longest catch of the day going for 18 yards. He averaged just 6.2 yards per catch. Crabtree was one of the few dependable targets for Colin Kaepernick. He received a team-high 14 targets. 

Crabtree will look for more Week 15 against the Seahawks.
