He Won't... if he plays for another league, we'd own his rights for 3 years.

Why do so many people think Michael Crabtree will have the oppertunity to re-enter the 2010 NFL Draft? If anything, he doesn't sign, and the 49ers will trade him in an effort to get some value for him. Also, Does Crabtree have the option to reject the trade? He shouldn't get to choose where he goes. I just don't get it!


if he is traded, he isn't required to sign with that team, there is no contract being traded, and only his rights...

so if his rights are traded to a team, he still has the option to re-enter the draft, because he is not contractually obligated to that team, so now that team is out of whatever they traded to the 49er's to get his rights..


no team will trade for him unless they know they already have contract agreements with him...

I don't think it works that way. If he gets traded to another team that team will then have his rights until the 2011 draft. Thus, the hold his rights for the whole year. Then if he wants he can do the same thing all over again and then that team can trade his rights away to another team. I think.



WRONG, they will have his rights, right up until draft day (2010) just like we would if we didn't trade him. No team is going to trade for him unless they know he will sign and I think the only team that knows he would sign with them is the Cowboys and im sure they will just take there chances on drafting him.

sports center just said something about the niners discussing adjusting their offer to crabz. I caught the very end of it, so i missed most of the update.

Michle Smith said that the 49ers never sent a letter to Crabtree to reduce his salary by 20,0000 a game . and that the 49ers are giving him the best deal he would get any where this year or next. and a draft expert excpect Crab to lose 8 to 10 Million in signing bounce if he is not signed this year but Smith added that Crabtree will sign with the 49ers ! it's tooo early to talk about holding out the whole year !

Surely no team can make contact with him, let alone have a contract agreement?-

teams have to come through us to work out any deals. no team can contact him or his agent or work him out prior to 12.00am draft day.

It would be a Sign & Trade, basically the other team agrees in principle to a contract with Crabs, we sign him to that contract and trade him to the team for what they are offering.

No team would trade simply for the "rights" to him unless there was tampering involved. They would require a contract to be in place, and Im sure there is some enforceable agreement to ensure the trade actually takes place once the contract is signed.

You mean Dallas and Baltimore? Lets just call them out, Deion still has contacts for both teams, he played last for Baltimore and they are in dire need of WR's and Deion swings from Jerry's nutz.

I don't get this whole thing about more money. If he is good, the niners will take care of him in 2 years. they sid with Staley, Gore, and Harlson. The niners take care of good players. He should look at it as 16 million for 2 or 3 years and the nineres will most likely take care of the next contract.

no.. lol that is definitely how it works..
Just when we thought we got a prize turkey, it turned out it was a buzzard. I hope Jerry Jones loves buzzard. Have to boil it in acid, beat it with a mallet and nuke it. Then feed it to your pet pig.

The Cowboys won't be picking high enough to take him if he re-enters the draft. Crabtree should go no lower than the 15th pick. Dallas will be picking in the late 20's. But, your probably right about the draft rights if someone knows more about this please give your input.

If Deion was telling the truth (which I doubt) I suspect the 2 teams involved could be the Cowboys and Redskins. We all know Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder do not hesitate to pay top dollar for big name players! And there is a common link... DEION SANDERS!!! Also, we know the Redskins were suspected of tampering in the case of Albert Haynesworth.
You guys need to read the Toreador article on the home page. It is spot on. Why any company would want him on an endorsement deal at this stage is a mystery and I would think any deal would require he be an active player anyway, so those monies would or should dry up in short order.
The comments about the competition he faced and how his stats were padded are ery interesting as well and it's surprising more was not made of it when discussing his record-setting years.
It would not surprise me if he didn't turn out to be God's gift to receiving after all, and if he doesn't sign with us, I certainly hope that turns out to be the case.
