Could he be worried about Hill & Smith?
I would not disregard anything at this point as far as what Crabtree thinking mode is.
i would say end of the day, its not as complicated as us diehards tend to make it...he wants money plain and simple...its a once in a lifetime individual who just defies all logic..these idiots have their entourages that just inflate their egos to no end and he is just blinded by the reality in front of him.
i'de say if his end game is that his opinion of the 49ers is so negative that he will only play for us at a premium price otherwise he's willing to piss away millions by waiting a year to get into a better team situation, i'de actually be able to come to grips with that reasoning and even respect it. we werent a good team last year and we didnt change much of the roster this year in an attempt to get better, we just aren't a well run organization so if a michael crabtree had the forsight to that level to identify that and try to get away from it, i dont blame him. i just dont think he's that smart, i just don't think the situation is that complicated, i just think he legitimately wants that type of money from anyone who drafts him
