Niners coach Mike Singletary can relate to what's happening with Michael Crabtree, the 49ers' first-round pick who remains unsigned.
After all, Singletary said he held out for about a week before signing his rookie deal with the Bears in 1981. He was a second-round pick who felt he should've been selected in the first round, he said.
Then, Singletary said he was out for about three weeks of training camp prior to his fifth NFL season. He ended up playing all 16 games as the Bears won the Super Bowl. He said he was ready to sit out all of training camp.
So Singletary said he'll just focus on the players who have arrived in camp. And, let's not forget, while the 49ers and Crabtree do not appear to be close to a contract agreement, the 49ers' first practice is still four days away.
