OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Wide receiver Michael Crabtree has had a career resurgence in Oakland. The wide receiver leads the Raiders with 66 receptions for seven touchdowns on 115 targets.

The 28-year-old, who was signed this offseason to a one-year deal, signed a five-year, $38 million contract with the team Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.


"This is where I belong," Crabtree told the team's website. "We've got to do what we've got to do. I'm a Raider."

During his first six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers, Crabtree eclipsed 1,000 yards just once. In 2012, Crabtree had 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and a career-best nine touchdowns.
