LOL, that didn't work out so well for you.
*Random thought.

Most of the other players from Crabs draft class are up for FA and many are now on new teams. Its nice the 49ers have crabtree for another year and his holdout doesn't seem like such a bad thing.
I'll be surprised if they find a way to keep him after this year. He just seems like he'll bolt for the best paycheck to me. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm glad this draft is heavy with receivers.
The question about his future may be answered in the upcoming draft...if Baalke grabs a couple good WR's, that could be the handwriting on the wall. Kap re-signing is #1...MC will be #2 unless his agent pulls a stunt that Baalke won't tolerate.

I agree. This season will be big. If Patton and a draft pick emerge as potential starters, Baalke will be a lot harder negotiator. It may be a moot point already. Baalke may have already set a value for what he sees as a possession receiver that simply will not add up to what Crabtree might get from another team.

Yeah I'm almost sure he's not going to resign with us. I can see him becoming a Cowboy actually...Crabs & Dez...sounds like a Jerry Jones combo to me!
Right...MC does seem to like Dallas. Could be one of the reasons they signed Boldin for 2 yrs, too. I'd be stoked w/Matthews, Moncrief or Adams...and maybe a Herron.
Man I wish I had crystal balls like some of you guys.
Crabtree when healthy is so much more than a possession WR. He is a playmaker a YAC machine a third down converter and a tremendous blocker! Now he isn't the speedster but he lacks nothing else! I am 50/50 whether we can keep him

This. People think because he doesn't have blazing speed and has great hands that he's just a possession receiver. He's one of the best all around skilled receivers in the NFL. 2012 was just the tip of the iceberg of what he can and will do.

Don't think anyone will argue that, the question is will you pay top 10 money for it? I don't think Baalke will.

If he is a top ten receiver why wouldn't he?

He definitely should. We finally get a young #1 WR they need to keep him. We all know how hard its been too find a receiver like him. WR'S aren't a plug and play position.

dashon goldson was a top 10 safety when he became a free agent, he didnt pay him. mike iupati is a top 10 guard and most fans and analysts can see he likely already has 1 foot out the door and this will be his last season with the team.
