Darrius Heyward-Bey agrees to 5-year contract with Raiders

And so a key part is falling into place in the standoff between the San Francisco 49ers and Michael CrabtreeOur Raiders blog posted that Adam Schefter reported a deal between Darrius Heyward-Bey and the Raiders.  That was followed by Pro Football Talk indicating it was a 5-year deal, with no other terms released.

While there are plenty of other players in the top 10 who haven't signed, DHB is the only receiver and you just know Michael Crabtree and his agent really wanted to see what DHB received.  The question now is whether Crabtree tries to push for more than Heyward-Bey even though that's not generally how the draft salary slotting works.  Either way, this is an important development.
