I listened to Marshall Falk make alot of sense about a week ago on NFL Network. He stated that a player has 1, maybe 2 times in their career where they hold the cards in negotiations. The 1st being there first contract, and the 2nd if they are lucky/talented enough to negotiate a 2nd contract once their 1st if over with.
I hold no ill will to Crabtree doing what he can to get the best payday. In this case it's not "Hey Earl, you dig a pretty mean ditch! Can we up your pay a six pack per day and keep you happy".
Too many of these guys never make it out of the 1st or 2nd year because of injuries.
