The Ravens also have plenty other links to Crabtree. The Ravens were looking to bolster their receiving corps in National Football League free agency and were able to do just that with the addition of Crabtree.
Crabtree has produced at least eight receiving touchdowns in a season four times, including in each of the past three years (nine - 2015, eight - 2016 & eight - 2017).
The Ravens finished last season ranked 29th in passing offense (189.4 yards per game) and tied for 23rd with just 20 scores through the air.
Crabtree is taking over the possession receiver role that Baltimore had once envisioned for Ryan Grant. Two years ago, Crabtree had seven catches for 88 yards and three touchdowns during a 28-27 Raiders win at M&T Bank Stadium.
Baltimore was rumored to be interested in several top free-agent wideouts earlier in the week, but bigger names such as Allen Robinson and Donte Moncrief signed elsewhere.
