Cardinals Sign WR Michael Crabtree To One-Year Deal Worth Up To $5.5M



The Arizona Cardinals announced Wednesday night that they’ve officially signed WR Michael Crabtree to a one-year contract. 

According to Mike Florio of PFT, Crabtree’s one-year deal includes a base salary of $3.25 million to go along with $2.25 million available through incentives for a total of $5.5 million. 

Ian Rapoport reports that the Cardinals are closing in on an agreement with veteran WR Michael Crabtree on Wednesday. 

Crabtree worked out for the Cardinals a few weeks ago, but they were unable to reach an agreement at the time. Rapoport says the two parties are now “almost there this time.

Arizona just released WR Kevin White on Wednesday, so they have an open roster spot. 

Crabtree, 31, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2009. He spent six years in San Francisco before signing on with the Raiders in 2015.

Crabtree was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $34 million contract when the Raiders released him last year. The Ravens would later sign Crabtree to a three-year, $21 million contract, only to cut him loose after one year. 

In 2018, Crabtree appeared in 16 games for the Ravens and caught 54 passes for 607 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 79 receiver out of 117 qualifying players.
