Michael Crabtree went all the way from San Francisco to Miami seeking a deal, only to return to the Bay Area to sign with the Raiders.
Former San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree has signed with the Oakland Raiders on a one-year deal worth $5 million.
Comcast Sports Network Bay Area reported one the terms of the deal, which pays Crabtree $3 million and contains up to $2 million extra in incentives.
Crabtree posted the news on Twitter late Monday night after meeting the Raiders.

Last week, Crabtree reportedly turned down a $3.5 million contract by the Miami Dolphins because he allegedly felt he could wait and get a better offer.
Crabtree played with the 49ers from 2009 to 2014, recording 4,327 receiving yards and 26 TDs. His best season came in 2012 when he set career highs with 85 catches for 1,105 yards and 9 TDs.
By joining the Raiders, Crabtree joins the team that spurned him with the 7th pick in the 2009 NFL draft to take Darrius Heyward-Bey instead. Crabtree was drafted three picks later by the San Francisco 49ers and thus far has had a much more productive career.
