Sing will motivate him to sign on time. Heck, Sing will motivate him to play for free if need be. Motivate, motivate, motivate. Eugene Parker will get mentally beyotch slapped by Sing.

Love the optimism. However, I don't Parker is going to hit the floor for ten pushups when Sing commands.

I'm prepared to eat crow, but I think we'll see mid-August or later before a deal is done.

You're probably correct. I, however, will hold out hope that Paraag will channel his inner Sing, drop his pants, and threaten Parker with a crazy, deranged look. It's a new day here in 49er land. Sing has affected everybody.

Meanwhile, Crabtree begins to cry.

Here's a blurb from Maiocco's blog the other day . . . Link


Quote:
After the Coffee and Davis deals are completed, the Crabtree negotiations should be straight forward.

The 49ers were allotted $4.1 million in the rookie salary pool. They've used 34 percent of that figure for the draft picks who have signed, as well as their crop of undrafted rookies. The 49ers have $2.69 million in 2009 cap room available for Crabtree, Coffee and Davis.

Crabtree's cap figure this year will be what's left after Coffee and Davis sign their deals. Then, there's the matter of guaranteed money. The No. 10 overall pick last year, the Patriots' Jerod Mayo, signed a five-year contract with about $13.8 million in guaranteed money.

In 2007, guaranteed money for first-round picks averaged $10.853 million. Last year, the average climbed 9.1 percent to $11.912 million. A similar increase this year would mean approximately $15 million guaranteed in Crabtree's deal.

I asked one NFL insider if it Crabtree's agent, Eugene Parker, could ask for the kind of money the Raiders will give Darrius Heyward-Bey, the No. 7 pick. Because the perception is that Crabtree should've been the first receiver selected, could Parker ask for a contract equal to or greater than Heyward-Bey's?

"No," the source said. "That's not logical. If that were the case, Aaron Rodgers should've gotten $23.99 million (in 2005)."


Hopefully it doesn't come to a lengthy holdout. I'm guessing the Niners will have to be somewhat closer to Heyward-Bey's total contract package than they would like . . . so be it.
Does anyone know if the niners will be in pads for the aug.1 practice? Last yr i went to the 1st training camp held open to the public and they weren't in pads so there was no contact.


Ok maybe not yet

when it's 1 day left I will be


until then I am in'

The 49ers are reportedly close to finalizing deals with third-round RB Glen Coffee and fifth-round QB Nate Davis.

Both rookies are believed to be waiting for a few more players to sign, so they can accurately gauge their signing bonuses. Once the Coffee and Davis deals are finished, Michael Crabtree's should be expedited.

so if we sign davis, does that mean huard is out?

Or do we keep 4 qbs?

Not sure if its possible to sign davis to a deal and then place him on the practice squad.

After re-reading Maiocco's piece on the un-signed rookies from the other day, I'm not so sure Crabtree's deal will simply fall into place after signing Coffee and Davis. I think the only thing that will be firmly established is Crabtree's cap number for 2009.

It's the rest of his deal, including guaranteed money, that will be at issue.
