Crabtree is on the field for Organzied Team Activities, but the veteran receiver is taking a careful approach after tearing his Achilles a year ago during the voluntary workouts. "Michael practiced a good portion of the workout," Jim Harbaugh said on Wednesday. "There's a plan in place for him."Crabtree didn't take part in 7-on-7 or team periods that were open to the media.Not to worry, says the 49ers head coach. It's all by design.

"(He was) more limited than some of the other receivers that we have, but I think our medical staff and Michael and we as coaches, are taking a smart approach."

This tells me that Harbaugh knows exactly how important Crabtree is to this team. If Crabtree plays well this season we just might ... might be apt to retain his services after all. It must have been a real wye opener last year with Crabtree out more than half the season

I really can't believe how resigned people are here to the supposed "fact" that "we're going to lose Crabs" after this year... I understand its a very real possibility, I just think after what we went through with WRs for the last TEN YEARS(!!!) people seem a little too eager to see Crabtree go... In my opinion its classic Whiner behavior.... people whine about him holding out his rookie year, whine about him being "slow," whine about the times he's been injured. And act like he's NOT a baller or something when he's out there. The guy is a baller. The guy makes it happen on the field. I can't wait to see him go off this year! And really hope we can get him signed. Cause him and Kap for the next 5-6 years? Are you serious?! How could you NOT want to see that if you're a Niner fan, lol.

I don't think ppl want him to go. Rather the majority are assuming that re signing him will be a major headache based off how hard it was to get him signed on his rookie deal. Which was a slotted salary.

If he has a great year, which I really believe he will, it will be that more difficult to afford him. If other teams threw money at our players like Goldson and RJF, then you know they'll for sure be standing there for Crabs. And I think Crabs would love to test the market.

Does anyone else wish that he actually stayed away from OTAs? lol. I don't want him getting injured in voluntary practices, especially with his history. I know anyone can get a freak unfortunate injury and it really worries me. Hope everyone stays healthy. I just wish we could turn injuries off like in Madden.

I'm so glad that they reported today that they are taking it easy with Crabtree. Dude was obviously not anywhere near 100% last year. Crabtree's 2012 season was really his only year where he was 100%. You could see he had some solid speed when healthy. Hopefully he gets back to that 2012 form this year.
Glad to see Crabtree working hard this off season and not being like Boone or Davis and b***hing about a contract that YOU signed and agreed to. Just wish we could somehow hold on to Crabtree but it's looking less likely with everyone focused on money instead of getting back to the ship.

If Crabtree has a good season, he will be impossible to sign. He will command over 10 million, that is almost what Boldin and Stevie Johnson are making combined. You think that will resonate will with the team?

If he has a bad season, we MIGHT sign him, but a "good" season? With say, 1200 yards and 10+ TD's? It will be impossible to fit into the cap, unless we decide to cut Aldon Smith.

True but I think teams are only gonna throw so much money at him. Looking at Brandon Marshall;s deal makes Crabtree seem more affordable. If you got a good player that is balling out you gotta pay him. Just can't let them all walk. I think Crabtree could get his payday from the Niners. We shall see.
Well I think there are a ton of WRs that will be FAs after this season as well. Like I mentioned about Kap's contract it's all about the market value for the position and Marshall's deal should helps us with resigning Crabs. I would love to resign him, and cut ties with Boldin after this year and throw his cash towards Crabs.

I'm not sure, but I feel like the 49ers usually sign their own before there contract year, recently who have we signed in a contract year? besides small 1 or 2 year deals.
Right now. There is no way Crab should get a deal close to B. Marshall. Look at Marshal's body of work compared to Crabs. Unless he blows up this year he should get around 6 million a year

Right I think that's what everyone is saying...Marshall is getting $10 million a year and Crabs shouldn't get anywhere near that. I think somewhere in the $7 million range would be fair. Seattle screwed us paying Harvin $12 million and Miami paying Wallace making $15 million a year.

Exactly. And Seattle and MIA will both be looking to dump those contracts after the season...I really see no reason why the Niners couldn't bring Crabs back at around 6/7 million a year.
