I don't care about the past However the fact that he can't separate anymore is what makes this a dud move to me.

This game should definitely bring some lulz from the Raiders side.

No clue on numbers, but timing wise would suggest, the money paid to Crabtree was due to to Richardson of GB until the Packers matched the offer sheet. Odd timing how shortly after the matched sheet became public, Crabtree 's signing was being announced.

Has Crabtree regressed that much after his injury? I don't watch 49er games. I know Kaepernick regressed last year, Boldin had a solid year, but Vernon Davis and Crabtree numbers were down. Don't know who was being doubled or not.

As long as Crabtree can continue to high point the ball in traffic and help move the chains and give Carr a target in the red zone, then he may be more productive with a QB who can give receivers a better chance to catch the ball with his ball placement skills. Crabtree hands will be the best on the team as of now.

Won't effect the draft at all seeing Raiders need allot of help at WR.

Honestly though, I can see this having the potential to hold us back from nabbing a WR in the first. We don't necessarily need to go WR that high, although I absolutely think we should. I see the chances of Reggie going D in the first now being extremely high, while looking for a WR in round 2/3. I bet he is targeting a S/WR in round 2 now.

I like the signing. Another player still in their prime, a full season removed from their injury, good hands and a solid route runner. His numbers suffered because he played with one of the more inaccurate Qb's in the league in Kap. Could be a solid number 2 if he can regain his form. So what if he doesn't have 4.3 speed, he is a better WR than Jones and can go over the middle. I have a feeling the contract will be about 4 million which makes it a good value signing.

I knew all along that the Raiders would not take a WR at 4 and this is just another step proving that I will be right. The 4th pick will be either Williams, Fowler or a trade down.

He's super slow and not really young so I can't see us pinning our hopes on him to solve our passing game. I think WR is still in play at 4 and it for dang sure is at play in the second.

Not sure how I feel one way or the other. If he can help.....then that would be great. Let's give him the chance and see what happens. Sounds like an old AD move to me. Someone else's trash = the Raiders treasure.
