One of the NFL's biggest free agent wide receivers is a free agent no more.

The Baltimore Ravens have, officially, signed free agent wideout Michael Crabtree. Baltimore announced the news on Twitter.

Well, they kind of did. Check it out:

It is official. ESPN's Adam Schefter has confirmed the signing. It's a three-year deal, according to the NFL insider.

Crabtree, 30, was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. He played collegiately at Texas Tech.

The wide receiver played for the 49ers from 2009-14. He's been with the Raiders since then.

Oakland released the veteran wide receiver earlier this week. The franchise signed wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

Crabtree is a big addition for Baltimore's franchise. The Ravens desperately need help at wide receiver.
