PFT’s highest-ranked unsigned player could soon be off the market.

The Raiders are likely to reach a deal with free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree, ESPN’s Bill Williamson and Adam Caplan reported Monday evening.

The 27-year-old Crabtree has spent the last six seasons with the 49ers. A 2009 first-round pick, Crabtree hauled in 68 passes for 698 yards and four TDs for San Francisco in 2014. However, he has lingered in free agency for more than a month.

But his time without a team could soon be over. In Oakland, Crabtree would join James Jones, Andre Holmes and Rod Streater as primary options in the pass catching corps.

A deal between Crabtree and Oakland could be finished as early as Monday night, ESPN reported.

Crabtree ranks 33rd in PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.

UPDATE 10:44 p.m. ET: Crabtree has tweeted that he will indeed be signing with the Raiders.
