Should Crabtree receive Megatron, AJ Green, Julio Jones money? Is he in that class? These three have shown they can get deep. He needs one more year performance wise to be in that class. If they sign him now there may be a reduction. Coming back after a serious injury changes the mindset of the player, especially with the money on the table. I'm all for signing him but I'rather see long term success and that means financial restraints.
Crabtree is not in their class.
Megatron signed an 8-year, $150 mil extension. No way Crab gets that kind of money, even on the open market.
AJ and Julio haven't signed their extensions yet. I don't think they'll get Megatron money, but they'll get a lot more than Crabtree.
I think Crabtree will get a deal somewhere in between what Greg Jennings and Mike Wallace got. 5 years, $45 - 60 mil. That's just speculation on my part.
