After signing a one-year deal in the spring, the Oakland Raiders have signed wide receiver Michael Crabtree to a four-year contract extension.
According to ESPN, the deal is worth $32 million, and includes $18 million in guaranteed money.
Although Crabtree hoped to land a big contract during free agency last spring, he was overlooked in the crowd of available receivers. Instead, he settled for a one-year, $3 million deal with Oakland… which has worked out in his favor.
This season, the 28-year-old has 66 catches for 760 yards and seven touchdowns for the Raiders. He’s the No. 2 receiver behind rookie Amari Cooper, the No. 4 overall pick in this year’s draft.
Cooper and Crabtree give second-year quarterback Derek Carr a pair of reliable weapons for the next several years.
