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.
No man. You don't have to argue that Crab is not worth Green, Jones, or Johnson money. No one thinks that. Crab probably doesn't think that. I think he deserves #1 WR money like Bowe, Wallace, or Jennings got this year.
He's a foundation piece for the WR core.
He's not a burner, but he is a great route runner with an excellent release. He's a unique WR in that he uses his strength to create separation. He has elite hands and can adjust to any throw. In combination with his strength he can make catches with CBs in his body. He's a chain mover and the offense is missing that so much right now. After we inject some talent from this WR rich draft we're going to have a very strong group.
