How can he know who caved if he doesn't know the specific details of the contract? He'd be reporting the details of the deal if he knew them. I think you're hearing what you want to hear.
Reign...yes, I think it's possible and maybe even likely that the Crabtree camp caved, but I don't think that it's "safe to assume" that they did. Both sides have held steady up to this point, but something prompted Parker & Crabtree to get on that plane. It could either be them realizing that they weren't gonna get any better than what they had, OR the Niners improved the offer to an acceptable level for them.
There's nothing to indicate either way. I definitely hope Crabtree caved though, we're paying him too much as it is.
