Crabtree spent his first and apparently only season in Baltimore in 2018. He was targeted 100 times, catching 54 passes for 607 yards and three touchdowns. In terms of yardage, he was the team’s third-leading receiver last year.
Crabtree, who turns 32 in September, will hit the open market once again. He had two years remaining on the three-year, $21 million deal he signed with Baltimore last March, and the Ravens will clear about $4.6 million in cap space by releasing him now.
