Crabtree Discussion Thread

they should make a deal with crabtree and sign his ass, then trade him to the cowboys for Roy Williams and maybe a 2nd or 3rd round pick in next years draft. what do you think? week 6 is the trade deadline if i'm not mistaken.

IF York can get him into a face to face meeting than I think a deal will get done very soon, but I'm just gonna assume that "he" tells York to f**k off

It would be the height of arrogance to refuse a meeting with York, after York publicly extended a hand to him.

The fact that there hasn't even been a response, to date, to the invitation shows Crabtree and Parker to be, at the very least, rude, discourteous, and unprofessional.

They expect York and the Niners to increase the offer, but they won't even meet with York or return his call? That's outrageous.

If I'm York, if the meeting ever goes forward, McGloughan or Paraag shows up in my place, with an excuse that I'm "too busy" to attend.

I don't think there's some other team secretly wooing Crabtree--a highly dangerous tampering issue for any team, including the Cowgirls. I don't especially like him, but I think Jerry Jones is too smart to be involved in anything like that.

I think Parker figures there's not going to be a CBA in place next year, and its going to be a wide open, capless market that will allow Crabtree to get something closer to the $40m he's apparently seeking.

That's a huge gamble to take, IMHO.

Ultimately, I think it will prove to be a blessing in disguise. At worst, the Niner's will save themselves $16m that they might have spent on an overhyped prima donna.

At this point, I hope that Crabtree holds out for the season. Given the unprofessional boorishness of his treatment of Jed York, I look forward to seeing Crabtree crash and burn in the draft.

I think, and don't quote me on this, according to the draft regulations, a team relinquishing their rights to a player in a draft can not select them in the following draft.

Really? Roy Williams AND a 2nd round pick? So you trade a proven veteran for a whiny little punk who hasn't played a down in the NFL, and on top of that, you surrender your 2nd rounder. OK, I know Jerry Jones is getting up there in years, but this makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to me. The Cowboys aren't giving up any of their stars for Crabtree. The only star we'll be able to land for him is Patrick Star.

You would be correct. Seen it written many times
Sorry to be a little off topic, but can we agree to refer to Jed York as simply, "Jed"?

Calling him "York" just reminds me of his father too much.

We can also refer to him as "Eddie Jr."

Ok, back on Topic...

CRAPTREE SUCKS!!!!!!

If that is what parker is thinking, he's sorely mistaken. If crabtree sits out, he will not accure a season, leaving him technically still a rookie. He goes back into the draft, he's still going to be apart of the Rookie Salary pool the NFL sets.

Quote:
When the NFL puts together its rookie salary pool - the cap within the cap that places some broad limits what teams can spend on its rookie class - the dollar amount is derived from where each team selects.

Each draft pick is assigned a figure based on where the selection was made. Each pick is assigned a dollar amount less than the previous slot. That, in itself, does not guarantee a slotting system that teams and players much follow, but it is certainly a guideline that has been the standard for as long as anyone can remember.

York offers to meet Crabtree, Parker in person.
This is the scenario I could see happening regarding Michael Crabtree...

I believe Crabtree will sign his revised contract offer soon. (possibly by this Sunday morning) At the very latest, I see him signing before Week 3 of the regular season. I think Crabtree is beginning to feel pressure from all parties involved. His character is being attacked with each passing day from various sources. Crabtree needs to sign with the 49ers in an effort to do a form of damage control and begin fixing his reputation around the league! I think Michael and his agent, Eugene Parker, now realize that the 49ers current offer is the best they are going to get.

If he does decide to sit out the season, I'm certain Crabtree will lose multiple endorsements and as a results lose millions of dollars all because of greed. (not just Crabtree's greed, but also his "advisors") Even if we were to trade Crabtree before the NFL Draft, I'm confident we would not get the same draft value in return. If he were to somehow re-enter the draft, his draft stock would plummet. As a result, Crabtree would still not get the contract he's currently seeking!

I still believe it is in the best interest of all parties involved that Michael Crabtree signs with the San Francisco 49ers. As far as his ego and character problems... I really think Michael Crabtree would be fine if we could get him away from the people giving him the bad advice. He is still a young, impressionable kid. I believe once he gets around his teammates and begins playing football again, Michael is different person. Look at how much Coach Singletary has helped to change Vernon Davis' outlook on the game. Why couldn't he do the same for Crabtree? Singletary and some of the players on this team could be good mentors for him. (Isaac Bruce, Takeo Spikes, Patrick Willis, Vernon Davis) Michael has all of the ability to be one of the greats, but now his character is in question. I firmly believe that can be fixed!

Now I know we won't immediately see him play, but I see him gradually being worked after our Week 6 Bye week. If we make the playoffs he could become a very valuble asset.

So now we're referring to him as his uncle, who actually is a Jr. (Eddie Debartolo Jr.'s father is Eddie Debartolo Sr.).

I think York is just fine. We all know Dr. York isn't involved in day to day operations anymore, so it's safe to reference him by his last name.

Unless of course, Crabtree just doesn't want to play for the 49ers. He might not care about damage control or endorsements, or anything else for that matter. The guy doesn't seem too bright.
Sign and trade does not happen in the NFL.

Deadline to trade rookies has past.


Any talk about trading him now = FAIL
