One of the storylines for the Raiders this offseason was whether they would bring back Michael Crabtree for a fourth season. The veteran receiver signed a one-year contract back in 2015, and then was awarded a four-year extension worth $35 million at the end of the season. Crabtree could be released with zero dead money, but the huge contracts recently given to free agent receivers suggest the Raiders would be wise to retain King Crab.
Sammy Watkins was the fourth leading wide receiver for the Rams in 2017. But don’t tell that to the Chiefs, the Raiders rival just made him the third highest paid receiver in football offering up a giant three-year contract worth $48 million with $30 million guaranteed at signing. That puts Watkins among the 15 highest paid non-QB’s in the league.
