It seems to me that Crabtree may be cut this year. We now have Moss, Manningham, Jenkins, and Owusu. We never have more than three W.R's on the field at one time.I don't think that he's in the top three as a receiver for us anymore. Crabs is slow and doesn't get separation from D.B's. He also has poor yardage after the catch. With his large contract and lack of production I don't see how we can keep him. He doesn't even have special team value. After three years of waiting for him to have a break out season, the 49er's need to move on.

Stevenking57, meet me at camera three.
Hey bud. How are ya? Ok, two things.
1. Owusu? Really? You've climbed on an undrafted rookie's bandwagon already? Say hi to Kory Sheets for me while you're there. Seems like a cool place to hang out.
And 2. We could trade Crabs for a 3rd or 4th easily. Or a 5th. My point is that Crabs won't get cut.
I don't blame the OP for thinking this way, cause Crabtrees body language also makes me feel he just doesn't wanna be here. With that said, I disagree with the OP and think Crabtree at the very least will play out his rookie contract and decide to sign with another team if hes not franchised.
