Michael Crabtree released by Ravens; could 49ers, Raiders be interested? originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

After just one season in Baltimore, Michael Crabtree is looking for a new team.

The veteran wide receiver was released by the Ravens on Monday.

Crabtree completed just one season of a three-year, $21 million contract he signed last March. In 16 games with the Ravens, Crabtree caught 54 passes for 607 yards and three touchdowns. The 607 receiving yards were Crabtree's lowest in a full season.

Crabtree seemed to take the news in stride.

Drafted No. 10 overall by the 49ers in 2009, Crabtree spent the first six years of his career in San Francisco before moving on to the Raiders where he played the next three seasons.

So, could there be a reunion between Crabtree and either of the Bay Area teams? Both teams are looking to add wide receivers this offseason.

The 49ers let veteran Pierre Garcon go and need to find a starting wide receiver, while the Raiders need to completely overhaul their wide receiver corps.

Crabtree turns 32 in September, but he can still be productive. In his three seasons in Oakland, he caught 25 touchdown passes.
