Could he be worried about Hill & Smith?
I would not disregard anything at this point as far as what Crabtree thinking mode is.
I absolutely believe that is a part of it. Afterall, the question of San Francisco QB was a major topic going into the draft and continuing on untill the time the Crabtree conversation pushed it back to 3rd page news.
He will never say so but I am certain that, along with Singletary's announced plan to run the ball 60% of the time, has had some impact on his thinking.
I think we would be ignoring the obvious if we did not admit that is a concern of his. It may not be the major one, and he would never admit it even if he signed somewhere else, but it is still something he has to understand about the 2009 version of the San Francisco 48ers. His signing may give Hill a better option, eventually, but it won't make Hill's arm stronger.
If this was true, we would have signed immediately after seeing Nate Davis' performance last week. Image the two of them together in three years!
All about the $$$. Anything else is pure poppycock and conjecture.
