The Baltimore Ravens have informed veteran receiver Michael Crabtree that he is being released, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Baltimore signed Crabtree to a three-year, $21 million deal during the 2018 offseason, but he was due to make $5 million in base salary and count $9.3 million against the salary cap in 2019.
If the Ravens make him a pre-June 1 cut, Crabtree will count $4.7 million in dead money but save the Ravens $4.7 million for 2019, according to overthecap.com. If the Ravens make him a post-June 1 cut, Crabtree would count $2.3 million in dead money and save the Ravens $7 million on their salary cap for 2019.
Either way, in 2020, he will count $2.3 million in dead money and save the Ravens $6 million on their salary cap.
The 31-year-old made 54 catches for 607 yards and three touchdowns in his only season in Baltimore.
