Unfortunately I see the same thing. Many rookies claim that this is their chance to get as much money as possible, and I don't blame rookies for getting as much, until it impedes on the team.
If he is holding out now he will holdout later because he has a snake of a agent whispering "money" in his ear.
This isn't a great position considering the plethora of WRs that are fighting for roster spots.

I could see the potential for Crabtree pushing the NFL over the edge to create a rookie salary pay scale, like the NBA possesses. The NFL has talked about this for years, and a mountain of rookies holding out might force the hand of the NFL and the players association to make the change.
Call it the Crabtree Rule.
True always got to be a trendsetter. I believe Garnett's contract for like 121 million is what forced the NBA to come with a different salary cap structure and it was Glenn robinsosn getting 100 million dollar rookie contract which made them put in a rookie salary cap.

Just thinking out loud...
He doesn't think Crabtree should have been the 3rd pick, he believe Crabtree should have been a top 3 pick. The Chiefs would not use that against him. They drafted him #3 so they are aware that they will pay him accordingly.
