Good news for Derek Carr. One of his favorite targets is back for another season. 


It's safe to say Jon Gruden is going to be happy about this as well.


According to reports, the Oakland Raiders are expected to retain wide receiver, Michael Crabtree. Crabtree was labeled as a potential cap casualty heading into the offseason but he'll get a shot under Gruden's new offensive system. 

​​Since signing with the Raiders three years ago, Crabtree has been extremely productive. He's continually finished among the league leaders in touchdowns and is one of the most dangerous red-zone threats at the position. 


While his yards were down last season, Crabtree didn't exactly benefit from a flawed offensive scheme. Yet, he continually performed for the offense on a weekly basis, which proved to be crucial with Amari Cooper's third-year struggles. 


Familiarity is key, and Carr's connection with Crabtree will be dangerous once again this season.


But more importantly, you know what this means. We get to hopefully see Crabtree and Aqib Talib match up two more times. 

Raiders fans will be happy to see No. 15 back in uniform next season.
