The Oakland Raiders have reportedly extended wide receiver Michael Crabtree's contract

Just a day after signing fullback/running back Jamize Olawale to an extension, Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has locked in another key offensive weapon. 

Adam Caplan of ESPN is reporting that the Raiders and wide receiver Michael Crabtree have finalized a deal to keep him in the Silver & Black for years to come.

Crabtree signed a one-year deal with the Raiders in the offseason and has proven to be a key piece for second-year quarterback Derek Carr and the Raiders offense. Crabtree has hauled in 66 receptions for 760 yards and seven touchdowns. He is a key to helping rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper develop, as well as keeping the defense honest instead of always rolling coverage the other way. 

Terms of the contract have not been released, though Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting the deal is worth roughly $8 million per year.
