That seems like an awful lot.

Seems about right. Similar to what Greg Jennings got from the Vikings, and Jennings has been the more productive player. Both are injury prone.

Yeah true. But wasn't Jennings deal considered high at the time? I need to look up WR salaries.
5 yrs for $45.5? man i'd be super stoked if the niners could squeeze that deal together.

crabtree is not an elite wr.....yet..he needs to be heathy and on the field more & then he will become that elite wr.

Need to lock up aldon too.

I think the 49ers are going to get an insane bargain with Aldon. Look at all the ammo against him. They stand by him now and look good and he takes the incentive laden deal he should get.

I think it was. People were saying he was a product of the QB/system in GB. Seems like almost every long-term deal signed on the open market is a bad deal for the team. Teams get in bidding wars and the player gets way overpaid.

Kap only taking a $12 mil signing bonus in his extension was apparently done by Kap's request, so we could re-sign Crabtree. The ball is now in Crab's court. He can a sign a fair, long-term deal here and win. Or he can cash out in FA, likely to a losing, desperate team. It's up to him.
i'm fairly certain we resign Crab. more so after seeing Kap's contract details. they make each other better.

There are other problems to consider besides the raw numbers.

No matter what Crabtree signs for, he is going to make considerably more than the other receivers on the team, including Stevie Johnson and Anquan Boldin. This is not exactly great for the locker room, because unless he demonstrates that he is clearly better and more productive, it will create some strain.

It would be another Baalke miracle if we pull it off, but I don't see it happening. Baalke ALWAYS looks for + value. Heck, even when signing franchise quarterbacks to long term deals, he manages to get + value.

Also, Crabtree will want to be the featured WR. Our WR corp currently has two other 1,000 yard receivers on the team for the next several years.

This year includes his rookie year

Not including Cobb or Nicks because both have external circumstances (short NFL career, injuries)

Now lets look at Crabs

Michael Crabtree past 4 seasons have totaled
245 rec, 3004 yards, and 20 tds
On average that is
61, 751, 5 per season

Out of those listed WR, IMO, I put Crabs at the bottom
Crabtree is not in the same tier as the mentioned players above

Wes Welker is a product of a system, a pass oriented system. Crabtree is way better than him, all the rest you can argue. Put Crabtree on a team with a prolific passing game and he would be as good as anyone not named Megatron.

This is actually EXCELLENT for the locker room. Crab has produced more for THIS team over the years than the new guys!

I am not so certain either way. I still say about 50/50, but after the Kap deal (and a little public pressure from your QB), I think the arrow is pointing up. The 49ers will be willing to pay the man, it just comes down to how badly Crabs wants to break the banks.

This. His numbers are skewed because of injury and our style of play. I could actually see that being a reason he wants to leave as much as the money. Unfortunately respect for receivers comes from the #s they put up and in this offense Crabs will never put up the monster #s he could in a passing offense.
